The Windows of My Soul: Rule by Mediocrity (#206)

Rule by Mediocrity (#206)

Just shuffle on down the line, my friend
Just shuffle on down the line
With a pat on the head and a pat behind
Just shuffle on down the line.

‘Cause everyone’s got the right, my friend
Yes, everyone’s got the right
Big Brother up there in the big White House
Says everyone’s got the right.

Why learn to read and write, my friend
It’s dumb to do the work
When everyone’s got the down-home right
To a real diploma.

They’ll push you through, they’ll pass you on
All you do is put in time
They’ll give you “C”s, you’ll graduate
It just requires your presence.

Just shuffle on down the line, my friend
You can even go to college
And graduate with mediocrity
Your gift to our democracy.
