lyrics

My old school had broken windows.
My old school had yellowed walls.
Radiators that would clang so loudly
You could hear them up and down the halls.

My old school had cracks in the pavement
Of a concrete playing ground.
Couldn't help but fall every time you'd play ball.
And everybody else would gather 'round
As the tears came falling down.

Old School

My old school had all kinds of children.
I saw my friends for the people they were.
Not just some color or race or religion
Or the price of their shoes and shirt.

My old school had hardcore teachers.
Make you work all day and night.
Wouldn't give up on you even when you wanted them to.
Keep on trying 'til you got it right.
Saw in each of us a burning light.

Old School

They tore it down last season
To put the land to "better use".
When money is the rhyme and reason
Don't care about what you lose.

Bring back the Old School.
Bring back the Old School.
Bring back the Old School.
Bring back the Old School.

Old School

You can blame it on the golden hue of memory.
That old school held the best of you
And the best of me
And the people we were yet to be.

Then there's the governor
Taking money from the schools.
So much easier to raise a nation of fools.
Reminds me of something my teacher once said:

Without an EDUCATION
We're all ENSLAVED.

Bring back the Old School.
Bring back the Old School.
Bring back the Old School.

Old School
