The Adolescents

No Child Left Behind

Chew the fat, race to the top

America, Land of the Free
That’s none for you, ten for me
Empty bowls at the poverty line
Hunger decides, tests define

It’s hard to read when you live on the street - no child left behind
It’s hard to read when there’s nothing to eat - no child left behind
It’s hard to read when the only trail - no child left behind
Leads from jail, to jail, to jail

Hopscotch at the poverty line

Arm the kids with food for thought
Why some have tons while they have naught
To ask aloud, “Is something wrong?”
No money for school, plenty for bombs

It’s hard to read when you live on the street - no child left behind
It’s hard to read when there’s nothing to eat - no child left behind
It’s hard to read when the only trail - no child left behind
Leads from jail, to jail, to jail

No child left behind

Give them a pencil and a task - no child left behind
Choose to listen, never ask - no child left behind
Why the president’s kids go to private schools - no child left behind
Why the rich and poor follow different rules

No child left behind
No child left… No child left behind
