What Did You Learn In School Today

  • (Tom Paxton)

    Chorus:
    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 learned that everybody's free
    And that's what the teacher said to me
    That's what I learned in school today
    That's what I learned in school

    I learned that policemen are my friends
    I learned that justice never ends
    I learned that murderers die for their crimes
    Even if we make a mistake sometimes
    That's what I learned in school today
    That's what I learned in school

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

    I learned that war is not so bad
    I learned about the great ones we have had
    We fought in Germany and in France
    And some day I might get my chance
    That's what I learned in school today
    That's what I learned in school

    (as sung by Pete Seeger)
