Give us a school where Creationists rule,

        Singing "Weigh ho! Dumb the kids down1"

With occult crapola your kids we will fool

        and given some time we'll dumb your kids down.

 

Logical thought is just what we will kill,

        singing "Weigh ho! Dumb the kids down!"

Blind faith in dogma is what we will shill

        and given some time we'll dumb your kids down.

 

Teach the kids to reason? Oh, no, there's no way

        as we sing "Weigh ho! Dumb the kids down!"

We'll train them like monkeys to do what we say

        and given some time we'll dumb your kids down.

 

Give us a stage where we'll sing rock and rap,

        singing "Weigh ho! Dumb the kids down!"

We'll sing nihilism, promote ignorant crap

        and given some time we'll dumb your kids down.

 

We're on the tube, where stupidity reigns,

        singing "Weigh ho! Dumb the kids down!"

With gratuitous violence we'll shock your kids brains

        and given some time we'll dumb your kids down.

 

We'll teach them to ignore all of decency's calls,

        singing "Weigh ho! Dumb the kids down!"

And encourage them to go and scribble on walls.

        Just give us some time and we'll dumb your kids down.

 

For the good old days you will certainly pine

        as we sing "Weigh ho! Dumb the kids down!"

America's now in an endless decline

        'cause you gave us the time to dumb your kids down.
