The Lyrics

A comment on the Texas State Board of (Mis) Education, and their attempt to rewrite American history, to fit their theocratic, anti-civil-rights agenda
Well, the State School Board of Texas
Their textbooks did revise
To fill our country's story
With right-wing myths and lies
Women put back in the kitchen
No business suits can wear
And to play down the struggle
For civil rights they'll dare

They're the most extreme fanatics
That ever ruled the board
All that miseducation
They're 'doing for the Lord'
Even questioning the basis for
Religious liberty
As the State School Board of Texas
Plays their games with history

Now it's time for real historians
To shout back at the gates
'No slanted Texas textbooks
In school of other states'
Let the right wing keep their own heroes
Like Gingrich and Schlafly
And the learning free in Texas
From mere ideology
