What Are You Teaching?


Texas History Class in seventh grade

blonde-haired blue-eyed coach is our teacher, hooray

but what happens when he starts to talk about gays?

to say that my cousin "Won't turn out right"

because he has two mommys

that's just not alright

to go on and on about how it's a sin

while staring in the eyes of my lesbian friends

What's wrong with you sir?

What are you teaching?

Is this Texas History, or are we preaching?

Tell me of Santa ana and the Alamo

but talk down on my family,and I'll walk out the door 

straight down to the office of the gay principal

not many will listen but I will be heard and seen

and next week you will say that you are packing your things

bye bye you dicriminating, conservative prick

I hope your son's gay, wouldn't that be a trip
