STOP THE SCHOOL VIOLENCE

 

Note: Over the last 10 years there have been a lot of mass public shootings.  but by 1999, there were at least 10 mass school shootings – the one at Columbine High School in Littleton, COlorado on April 20, 1999 being the worst one at the time.  This song I wrote after that incident expressing how I felt about all the mass school shootings I was hearing about at that time.

(Chorus)
How cruel!
Too much violence in our schools!
How uncool!
What such fools,
To cause such violence in our schools!!

(Verse 1)
In the last two years we had to fear!
It seems like these people don’t even care!
How unfair!
It seems like they’re always a pair!
Oh, dear!
It seems like the end is always near!
I’m forming tears
I’m so sad
Because what they did is so bad!

(Chorus)

(Verse 2)
It happened in Arkansas, Oregon, and Colorado,
Oh wow!
Our nation is going down!
We will all drown
In pain and sorrow!
Our schools are horrible!

(Bridge:)
So many people
It happened to!
Happened to
So many people!
(repeat)

(Chorus)

(Verse 3)
Dear God,
Why did this have to happen
In your world under heaven?
Dear God,
These people don’t celebrate the sabbath
And they aren’t very clever!
Will they ever realize that what they did was wrong?
Will they ever realize who they killed?
Will they ever feel the way we feel?
The school victims got such a raw deal!
