- tune: Hush, Little Baby
Hush, little children, don’t you mind.
Bush will leave no child behind.
POLiTICians know schools the best—
EduCAtion means taking a standard test.
If your school tests are too low,
Ed-u-ca-tion funds won’t flow.
More books, equipment, teacher pay,
Would just be throwing money away.
If kids test at the top of the pool,
They can go to a charter school.
Hush, little children, don’t say a word,
Congress is giving you the bird.
(Speak) And that mockingbird won’t sing!
