WHAT DID YOU LEARN IN SCHOOL TODAY Tom Paxton (Words/Music) Pete Seeger 1964 Also recorded by: Tom Paxton Chad Mitchell Trio And others What did you learn in school today Dear little boy of mine What did you learn in school today Dear little boy of mine. I learned that Washington never told a lie I learned that soldiers seldom die I learned that everybody's free And that's what the teacher said to me And that's what I learned in school today That's what I learned in school. What did you learn in school today Dear little boy of mine What did you learn in school today Dear little boy of mine. I learned that policemen are my friends I learned that justice never ends I learned that murderers die for their crimes Even if we make a mistake sometimes And that's what I learned in school today That's what I learned in school. What did you learn in school today Dear little boy of mine What did you learn in school today Dear little boy of mine. I learned our government must be strong It's always right and never wrong Our leaders are the finest men And we elect them again and again And that's what I learned in school today That's what I learned in school. What did you learn in school today Dear little boy of mine What did you learn in school today Dear little boy of mine. I learned that war is not so bad I learned of the great ones we have had We fought in Germany and in France And some day I might get my chance And that's what I learned in school today That's what I learned in school.
