Bad Education

Rewrite of Bon Jovi’s Bad Medicine

No, there they ain’t got a fever
Got what seems to be a permanent disease
It’ll take more then the school nurse or PTA committee
To prescribe a remedy

They got loads of money
But it isn’t what our kids need
Seems all they ever do anymore is get our little ones
Either shot or knocked up by some overeager teacher
Try to cover this song up
But no way am I going away or letting you silence me

I know
Today’s kids got all the symptons
Count ‘em 1,4,3

Deny it
But we all know
Today it’s all about your greed
Not some desperate kid’s need
Hiring sexy young thangs
Got our kids falling in love
Cos they’re too darn young to know any better
You got the wrong ones in charge and you know it

When it comes to their learning
You only give ‘em a little
Never ever enough
Leave them brainless and on their knees
Begging for a chance at a better life
But never finding none
Cause while you were busy looking the other way
Dealer’s got ‘em hooked on the drugs

Your teachin’ ain’t nothin’ but bad education
Bad education ain’t what today’s kids need
All shook up and confused
Led astray by your bad education
Tell me
Why don’t you even bother
To try and cure this disease

Nowadays our kids are forced to depend on guitar heroes and druggie needles
Just to be gettin’ some attention
Just to be gettin’ some thrills
They give in to the pills
Cause of your lazy butt work force
They all got a dirty low down addiction
Leaving a nasty track
To proclaim that your pushing and bullying
Is the monkeys on their breaking backs

No, there ain’t no paramedic
Gonna save you from my scolding attack

Not givin’ ‘em nearly enough of what they need
Too young and pretty
Hiring all those oversexed predators
Can’t expect pumping hormones
Not to go falling in love
Too young and innocent to know any better
Screaming
Dying for the answer to a better life
You just let ‘em bleed
Give a little
But it ain’t nearly enough
Falling begging to their knees
Maybe if you teachers really cared
Our kids would’t be attending
Carrying guns
So scared every day
Living their lives as nothing more then useless thugs

Your teachin’ ain’t nothing but bad education
Bad education ain’t what today’s kids need
All shook up and confused
Led astray by your bad education
So let’s see you try to do instead of just acting the part
Oooh teacher, baby
Cure this disease

Bad, bad education
Bad, bad education

Gotta buy them a respirator
Cause this so called educational system is running out of breath
You’re such a cruel defeater
Warped in your old-fashioned ways of thinking
So very depressing
You ask for funds to help with their schooling
All just a ruse
We know
To take what your greed can get
The public don’t really know any better

Or they would’t be givin’ you any more of their hard earned dough

Your teachin’ ain’t nothin’ but bad education
Bad education ain’t what today’s kids need
All shook up and confused
Led astray by your bad education
Tell me
Why don’t you even bother
To try and cure this disease

Ooh teacher
Don’t you dare think
We’re close to being done yet

Your teachin’ ain’t nothing but bad education
Bad education ain’t what today’s kids need
All shook up and confused
Led astray by your bad education
Better teachers and teachin’ are the only things that can cure this disease
