The Lyrics

Jackson University--my alma mater! (or alma frater?) OS: "The Wall" by The Jackson 5
This ugly school is real depressing.
It’s just like a prison, fueled by fear.
Why can’t we make this place more pleasing,
Make the students proud of being here?

Paint up these walls with murals that inspire us!
Grow us so our world desires us!
Paint these walls up! Paint these walls up:
Rainbows and dancers on the wall who shake it;
Heroes who say, “You’ll make it!”
Paint these walls up! Let’s paint these walls up!

(Let’s do it! Let’s do it!)

This school’s too stiffly academic:
Reading and math the only goals.
We need some gym and art and music!
You must train us in mind, body, soul!
Come, people…

Fill up these walls; let’s give this place some meaning
For trampled hearts that are worth gleaning.
Fill these walls up! Fill these walls up!
Oh, paint me a picture of some safe surroundings,
Neighbors with love abounding.
Paint these walls up! Let’s paint these walls up!

Paint up these walls! Show us our civic duty.
Show off all our inner beauty.
Paint these walls up! Let’s paint these walls up!

Paint up these walls so we can see our beauty…

Excellent rhyming and overall just a really fine remembrance piece

This sounds like it could be sung by a bunch of high school art geeks in the next “High School Musical” Movie

I probably would have gone for "blow up these walls" and give us a year off - but hey, that's just me! :-)

The link took me to a Jacksons song called Petal, Melanie. But I don't know The Wall either. Unless "It's Just Another Brick In The.." Nice job - 555
