"What Did You Learn in School Today?" (karaoke)

"What Did You Learn in School Today?" (sheet music)


What did you learn in school today,

Dear little child of mine?

What did you learn in school today,

Dear little child of mine?

I learned that Washington never told a lie.

I learned that soldiers seldom die.

I learned that everybody's free.

And that's what the teacher said to me.

And that's what I learned in school today.

That's what I learned in school.

 

What did you learn in school today,

Dear little child of mine?

What did you learn in school today,

Dear little child of mine?

I learned that policemen are my friends.

I learned that justice never ends.

I learned that murderers die for their crimes

Even if we make a mistake some times.

And that's what I learned in school today.

That's what I learned in school.

 

What did you learn in school today,

Dear little child of mine?

What did you learn in school today,

Dear little child of mine?

I learned our government must be strong.

It's always right and never wrong.

Our leaders are our finest men.

And we elect them again and again.

And that's what I learned in school today.

That's what I learned in school.

 

What did you learn in school today,

Dear little child of mine?

What did you learn in school today,

Dear little child of mine?

I learned that war is not so bad.

I learned about the great ones we have had.

We fought in Germany and in France.

And someday I may get my chance.

And that's what I learned in school today.

That's what I learned in school.

 

That's what I learned in school today.

That's what I learned in school.
