Study: Education is the Way. Music and lyrics by Vic Stathopoulos.
Now for us to do anything in this life
You know we have to go to school
and we have to learn our rights
Education's the name of the game.
Now you got to do it.
You got to study everyday
You got to do it everywhere.
You got to do it to get somewhere.
If you want to be the Prime Minister
Do you want to be an Astronaut?
You might have to study,
to get there, to the top.
Study everywhere if you can
Every hour, every day
You'll be up there with those names
You're going to be that star.
Every day and everywhere
You always got to study
Listen up, I'm not joking with you.
You gonna get somewhere, someday.
Listen to everybody that keeps on saying to you to study.
You going to get somewhere
People are going to respect you.
Listen to what you Mama's got to say.
Study and you going to be someone today.
You can hear yourself study.
People can laugh at you.
Someday, you'll be big one day.
Study! You won't regret it. I'm not joking.
Study! Study! Study! Study!
The song was originally called Study.
I changed it to 'Education is the way' because I suppose the word study sounded too serious.
What do you think? Should I call it Study?
