The Lyrics

Singing anti-school songs is getting to be quite a tradition for kids these days, but there are nowhere near enough of them. Here's one for today's prisoners... er, students.
Public school pollutes both the body and mind;
It's long past time that we destroyed all that kind.
Let's burn it down!
Foreclose those dolt holes: schoo-hoo-ools!

Let's break down the doors,
Tear the carpets from the floors,
And burn it down!

School is filled with molesters and their friends;
They want to do bad things to kids' rear ends.
Let's burn it down!
Close those whores' corn holes: schoo-hoo-ools!

Let's purge all those whores;
Let's roast all of their back doors!
Let's burn it down!

Let's burn it down: school!
Let's burn it down: school!
Let's burn it down: school!
Let's burn it down!

The fascists and the freaks have full control;
Their school's a prison, and there's no parole.
Let's burn it down!
Roast those foes' bolt holes: schoo-hoo-ools!

They've taken their tolls;
Let's rake them over the coals!
Let's burn it down!

Schoolbooks are filthy and they're filled with lies:
Sick porn to make kids want to gouge their eyes!
Let's burn it down!
Torch those porno rolls; schoo-hoo-ools!

Let's poach their outpost;
Let's throw their porn in to roast!
Let's burn it down!

Let's burn it down: school!
Let's burn it down: school!
Let's burn it down: school!
Let's burn it down!

Our children languish and they're all sinking fast;
Let's free their minds and break their chains at last.
Let's burn it down!
Down, down, down, down, down; let's burn it down: schoo-hoo-ool!

It's time they should go;
The system's all set to blow!
Let's burn it down!

Public school's evil and gets worse every day;
It's child abuse to send your kids there, I say!
Let's burn it down!
No more, no, no more schoo-hoo-ool!

On children they war;
It's time to settle the score:
Let's burn it down! Down! Down! Down! Down! Down!

Let's break down the doors,
Tear the carpets from the floors,
And burn it down!

Neat one. Fortunately in Finland our schools are not managed by government, but by towns and parishes. Delegating the power of decision closer to the people will improve the quality a lot. "State school" refers in Finland to schools of children of Army personnel, railroad personnel and other personnel in the service of Government with mandatory migratory lifestyle.
