What Did You Learn In School Today Lyrics
What did you learn in school today,
Dear little boy of mine?
What did you learn in school today,
Dear little boy of mine?

I learned that Washington never told a lie
I learned that soldiers seldom die
I learnd that everybody's free
And thats what the teacher said to me
And thats what I learned in school today,
thats what I learned in school.

What did you learn in school today,
Dear little boy of mine?
What did you learn in school today,
Dear little boy of mine?

I learned the policemen are my friends
I learned that justice never ends
I learned that murderes pay for their crimes,
Even if we make a mistake sometimes
And thats what I learned in school today,
Thats what I learned in school

What did you learn in school today,
Dear little boy of mine?
What did you learn in school today,
Dear little boy of mine?

I learned that war is not so bad
I learned about the great once we had had
We fought in Germany and in France
And some day I might get my chance.
And thats what I learned in school today,
Thats what I learned in school

What did you learn in school today,
Dear little boy of mine?
What did you learn in school today,
Dear little boy of mine?

I learned our goverment must be strong
It's always right and never wrong!
Our leaders are the finest men
And we elect them again and again
And thats what I learned in school today,
Thats what I learned in school
