I read in the paper today about our kid sand the problems they pose with booze, drugs
and sex. And I had to write this. It's always good to have something to write about.
Too much pressure causes these things to happen.
Sex, drugs and booze
Sex, drugs and binge drinking
I heard on the local news
It’s what our kids get into now
Are we just paying our dues?
We’re putting pressure on these guys
And driving them insane
Study, study, all the time
Then study more again.
We teach our kids at an early age
That all that life should mean
Is being smarter than the rest
That they must be the cream
Competing hard to shine on out
Relaxing that’s not on
Just push and push then push again
Till all their strength is gone.
Oh yes, the mighty God of sport
This each child must take part
Yet winning is the only goal
Using mind but not the heart
And all these school kids want to do
Is chill out, come on down
but when these naughty things they do
The authorities, they frown.
