The Lyrics

Not to make light of a serious issue (teen pregnancy, in this case), but rather to increase awareness about it and articulate how disturbing I think the glamorization of it via reality television has become.
Why are teens getting pregnant?
Is it that Teen Mom or
Sixteen and Pregnant on MTV?
Why are they getting pregnant?
(Getting pregnant)

Teens in my generation did chores
And did their homework, so
Why are they getting pregnant?
(Getting pregnant)

Condoms are easy to get
And easy to use
Polyurethane condoms are available
Why then are… they pregnant?

Is it that Teen Mom or
Sixteen and Pregnant on MTV
Glamorizing teen moms?
(Teen mom glamour)

Yes, teens in my day went to parties
But they were more careful
And more responsible
(Responsible)

Occasionally there were dances
And after-school get-togethers
But we were… but we were
Much more responsible

Great job-555!!! Keep 'em comin' :-D I think that the Liberal agenda that removed God from schools has made them worse, not better. Post-God there is murder, violence, drugs, kids and teens having sex wuth each other and teachers and vice-versa, and a total breakdown of morals and discipline. Everyone's got devices for social media too and the bullying is out of control, forcing kids to commit suicide even. I grew up in the '70s-early '80s and on HS we had ONE pregnant teen which was a scandal. Today this is nothing and the whole free condoms, etc... IMHO just encourages premarital sex like an OK stamp to fool around. Of course teens had previously fooled around but there was morality and faculty/principals could administer corporal punishment- today, afraid of being sued for touching a child the school has to call the Sheriffs in. I know b/c my brother and sister both work for school districts and they say they are like zoos now- not even close to what we grew up in. I think it started with removal of all the lockers and the uniform codes and just went downhill from there... but that's just my opinion in my area.

I myself happen to lean more liberally, but I see what you're getting at in your opinion, and I respect it. The way I see it, the removal of God from schools is separation of church and state; not every student or faculty member believes in God and is entitled to practice however they choose spiritually. If they want to pray, that's on their volition, but they shouldn't impose that prayer on other people who don't believe in it. And while I see that the free-condom movement can lead to more premarital sex, easier access to those, as well as other methods of birth control, greatly decreases the risk of pregnancy (and condoms have the added bonus of decreasing STDs) among those who do choose to have sex. If one does choose to become sexually active, I feel that they should be more educated when it comes to birth control and pregnancy prevention, and there's not enough of this education going around. I'm almost 26, but while teen pregnancy was relatively low when I was in school, there were several girls there who have gotten pregnant by the time they'd graduated. Someone close to me got pregnant at 16 and now, at my age, is a mother of 4. As much as I like substitute-teaching, I have to walk on eggshells to make sure I don't get falsely accused of something I didn't do.

Excellent message, but is quite a bit off in the pacing department

Thanks. As for the pacing, I followed a set of lyrics I found on the metrolyrics site that didn't include the "doo-wah" introduction.

"god" isnt removed from schools, if "god" is allah or "go green" or "save the earth", or "watch your carbons." we have a political party preventing dad and mom from being influential, to create more government dependent people . these kids arent stupid, they know they can get away with almost anything now days. make parents and kids responsible for their choices, and don't enable silliness and stupid choices with tax dollars for votes. there's the start and the end.
