Lyrics:

Need My Teachers To Learn 2.1

In the 27th row of her college class she was working real hard and tryin to pass

She studied all night for the test she took but she couldn’t use the notes on her own Macbook

He told em that notecards we all they needed and he wouldn’t change his mind even though she pleaded

The dark red F was no surprise as the tears formed in her eyes


She said kids are changing any fool can tell and the way that ya teach em has to change as well

You might not like it cuz we grow up fast

but prepare us for the future and not your past

There’s not one minute to burn

I need my teachers to learn


In detention hall there’s a quiet young man, head hung low, with a phone in hand

time to tell his parent’s bout the school’s outrage cuz he tried to post the essay on

his Facebook page

He was hoping more people could have read those words

cuz an audience of one well it’s so absurd

What ever happened to compromise

he said the school should realize


Aww those kids are changin any fool can tell and the ways that you’re teachin have to change as well

You might not like it cuz we grow up fast

but prepare us for the future and not your past

There’s not one minute to burn

I need my teachers to learn


In a third grade room in a tiny town

a little blue eyed girl is feelin down

she tried to bring her daddy to her show and tell

he was gonna Skype in just to wish them well

she showed em the camera on her Mom’s netbook

but they wouldn’t let her do it on a school network


that man in camo never called

they got him blocked by a firewall

I said things are changin any fool can tell

and the way that you’re teachin has to change as well

You might not like it cuz we grow up fast

prepare us for the future and not your past

There’s not one minute to burn

I need my teachers to learn


the world is changin like it’s always been 

and you gotta update software every now and then

if you want to keep your version well that’s OK

but there’s too many kids who need the tools of today


it’s not a problem you can start real small

and a baby doesn’t walk until he learns to crawl

if a teacher’s not a learner till the day they die

well then man I’m askin this well why should students try


They need their teachers to learn

We want those teachers to learn

So come on teachers and learn
