This earth school

we think ends at high school graduation

but it don’t

This earth school

college puts the icing on the cake

but it ain’t

This earth school

settled at the office we reward the good

but they aren’t

This earth school

we feel done raising the kids

but we’re not

This earth school

got the gold watch and certificate to boot

but still want

This earth school

we know effort on the death bed

but confessions can’t

This earth school

we hope to get it right the next time through

but we forget

This earth school

is for now

but he don’t

and she ain’t

though it aren’t

see it not

have them want

watch us can’t

will they forget

This Earth School
