Default Educated Fool


3 years of Latin
In high school
You might call me
An educated fool
Read Cicero and Pliny
That's a fact
I'll be in good shape
When the Empire comes back

Educated Fool
That's what I am
Can't find a job
Don't give a damn
Educated Fool
I made straight A's
They don't pay you
For making good grades

I majored in English
I read Shakespeare
All 37 plays
Including King Lear
Wordsworth and Coleridge
Shelley and Keats
Oedipus Rex
Greek tragedy

Took me 12 years
To get through college
What'll I do
With all this knowledge?

Educated Fool
That's what I am
Can't find a job
Don't give a damn
Educated Fool
I made straight A's
They don't pay you
For making good grades
