RINGTONES TO YOUR CELLPHONE

They just gave up on our entire generation
So we were all pushed to the side cuz we didn't see the world through our teachers eyes
When all we needed was a little bit of motivation
But because we wore our pants saggin' y'all labelled us gangstas
And said we wasn't worth the time

There are so many things I never asked you
There are so many things I still don't know
There are so many things you never told me
And still so many things that I will never know
and why, cuz I went to City High

A school with more drop outs than sign-ups at registration
And the pregnancy rate is at an all-time high, we all know why
Now you would think the classroom's the place for mental stimulation
But it's some brothers outside sellin' that stuff, that'll really stimulate your mind, (talk about gettin' high)

There are so many things you never showed me,
There are too many things you let slip by,
How can I face a world that doesn't know me
A world that doesn't care whether I live or die,
And why, cuz I go to City High

So, We don't need your education
We don't want no pacifier
We are the leaders of your nation
We're gonna make sure the world survives
There ain't no justice there's just us
What happened to the meaning of "in God we trust"
So as we get older and our children grow up
We ain't gonna teach them what y'all showed us

There's too many babies dyin' before they're born (Lord ain't that the truth)
Too many young ladies cryin' with a daddy in the house but not a father in the home (now y'all know there's a difference)
And what about all our young soldiers being led astray (by this negative music)
What happened to the Isaac Hayes, and the Curtis Mayfield's and all the Marvin Gayes?
Man we really need 'em today

And there were so many things that needed explaining
But you said it was too late for me to learn
You were suppose to be my shelter when it was rainin'
But instead you left me out here all alone, so I gotta make it on my own

We don't need your education
We don't want no pacifier
We are the leaders of your nation
We're gonna make sure the world survives
There ain't no justice there's just us
What happened to the meaning of "in God we trust"
So as we get older and our children grow up
We ain't gonna teach them what y'all showed us

For people who did believe, what we could do to change our future, you knew the world was in our hands, help build them strong so they can withstand, all the pressures, all the war, all the prejudice, and the others who were sure we couldn't fight the stress in life, for those of you who didn't believe us, listen to my words for you, listen to your children sing to you

We don't need your education
We don't want no pacifier
We are the leaders of your nation
We're gonna make sure the world survives
There ain't no justice there's just us
What happened to the meaning of "in God we trust"
So as we get older and our children grow up
We ain't gonna teach them what y'all showed us

[Repeat x1]
