What Did You Learn In School Today?

Song by Tom Paxton

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
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…

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…

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…

I learned that wars are not so bad
I learned about the great ones that we have had
We fought in Germany and in France
And someday I might get my chance
And that’s what I learned in school today
That’s what I learned in school…
