The Lyrics

I am sure many of yous heard the phrase "Dumbing Down America", well this song is dedicated to that.
[Intro]
America! Hahaha! Making fun of you
How many people have ever flunked a class or dropped out of school?
How many of you people are now working at a minimum wage job?
Our parents and teachers trtried to guide us through life
But we never listened, this is what we get
(Yo, I want everybody to listen to the words of this song)...or so we're told

One of my dreams was to attend a college
Because of high school I received no knowledge
Now I'm stuck at a job making minimum wage
I'm probaly be stuck here 'til I'm old and gray
So much credits I missed 'cause the grades failed
It's a particular math that I cannot seem to pass
I need this for my computer science, how long will it last
This seems to be my most difficult task
Never would of thought I could make it so far
With some tutoring, this is no longer that hard
I need to catapult to the forefront of the class like this
My could never predicted my future to be like this
I must've hit a nerve with my principal up in his office
'Cause he keeps telling me I ain't nothing but trouble
And now he's saying he's gonna kick me out of school - not again!
It's not the first time in my life, and now I'm graduating

CHORUS:
Dumb America! I only flunked two times
Dumb America! I think I've lost my mind
Dumb America! I don't get this sh*t
Receive an "F" and get left behind (x2)

Look at these grades, D's and F's, might as well just quit
If I took easier classes I could learn bit by bit
But there's no way, 'cause I gotta do higher learning
I even flunked gym (nooo way!) Look at my grades
Can't do the math and the answers in the back of the books
I didn't graduated from Bridgeport High School to learn that
But I could read, so f*ck school, there's no way am going back
Give me a book, show me where the library is at
When I was in high school, didn't care where I was heading
No universities wanted me, almost gave up the hunting
'Til I found UNLV, the only one to take me in
Gave me a chance and look how many classes I past
Helped me get back to the top, every class that I got
Should've done this in the past, see how far I've got
Like damn, what just happened - thinkin' back to the past, wow
I'm like is my brain starting to work to do harder math now

CHORUS

See my problem is my short attention span
So some of the tutoring was never a helping hand
My moms told me to get my feet wet out from the sand
'Til I created a whole new other plan
Fresh out of school, offered a job and I did take it
My parents flipped when they found out I made it
It didn't take much they were so happy for me
I told them I could make it they just had to see
Now they're put my life through a microscope
Searchin' for that wrong turn, am tied up in a rope
Waitin' to choke; tight up with a rope
I found a niece girl and now they're say I don't like her (Nope!)
All I hear is: something, something, in one ear out the other
Telling me that I need to be more like my brother
Math was never a problem for me only in high school
After I studied hard in college thats where it came useful
So now I'm using it to my full benefit to get farther
Telling me I cannot go on it will get much harder, sh*t!
Just look at me now like I'm your best friend
The boy genius, not there with me from beginning to end

CHORUS

[Outro]
So to everyone in America
We gotta do what's right and listen
Pass high school classes and get more scholarships
The universities want way to much money for education
We need to fight for what is right
For cheaper education so more people can attend college
For cheaper living in the dorm rooms if that's needed
F*ck you Las Vegas! F*ck you UNLV!
F*ck you for not giving me my residency
So I can continue to go there cheaper to pay in-state
F*ck you!

{*harmonize the beat*}

I'm just playin' America, let's go flip some burgers
