Story behind the song
Are you tired of being told not to be yourself? What in the world are we going to do about people who ban books in schools?
Lyrics
Everywhere I look, every place I see, Someone wants to take as bite of me. Try to get away, but I can't go far. All I want to do is chase my star. Try to get a job and they want to know: "Are you smokin' dope?" "Do you like snow?" "Do you beat your kids?" "Do you smack your wife?" "Are you the kind that likes to drink and drive?" Chorus: What in the world are we gonna do about people who ban books in school? Why in the world must folks be cruel? Why won't they live by the golden rule? Where in the world can I be free to find for myself what's good for me? "It's for the greater good!" these tyrants say. "Got to get in line or be on your way!" "Don't read Mark Twain!" "Play on the team!" "Don't you rock the boat!" "Watch what you dream!" Chorus: What in the world are we gonna do about people who ban books in school? Why in the world must folks be cruel? Why won't they live by the golden rule? Where in the world can I be free to find for myself what's good for me? O-O-O-yeah! What in the world are we gonna do about people who ban books in school? Why in the world must they be cruel? Why won't they live by the golden rule? Where in the world can I be free to find for myself what's good for me? What in the world are we gonna do ... What in the world are we gonna do ... What in the world are we gonna do ...
