Teacher, Teacher


Hey teacher, teacher

I bet you never saw this coming

I bet if I told you you'd think I was lying

Cleverly disguised

Behind beauty and brains

But see with more than your eyes

Angel by day

Devil by night


Hey teacher, teacher

What if I took off my mask?

What if I didn't do all you asked?

Unworthy authority

Playing favorites and misleading

Ignoring your duties but still expecting pity

You turn your back

We all laugh


Hey teacher, teacher

I forgot to tell you

Maybe things would go better if we couldn't see right through you

Paper airplanes are your mail carriers

Rumors are your frequent fliers


Need to talk?
