measuring cups…

my favorite musician has something to say about all the “diseases” our children have these days…

get out your measuring cups and we’ll play a new game
come to the front of the class and we’ll measure your brain
we’ll give you a complex and we’ll give it a name

get out your measuring sticks and we’ll play a new game
can’t have the cream when the crop and the cream are the same
liquid or gas no more than the glass will contain

so you talk about a hand of glory
a tale that’s rather grim and gory
is it just another children’s story
that’s been de-clawed?
when the tales of brothers Grimm and Gorey
have been outlawed

I think they’re gonna make you start over you don’t want to start over
put your backpack on your shoulder be the good little soldier
take your places now
’cause we’re all predisposed

measuring cups play a new game
front of the class measure your brain
give you a complex give it a name

put your backpack on your shoulder
be the good little soldier
it’s no different when your older
you’re predisposed
that’s all for questions now
the case is closed.

this song meant a lot to me when i was learning a bit about how to teach kids with “problems”… sucks for kids these days… predisposed.

here is the song live:
