In the 1970s the mind controllers
Had begun playing human cribbage,
Instead of raising young who question
They started raising educated cabbage

In the 1970s the mind controllers
Had begun playing human cribbage,
Instead of raising young who question
They started raising educated cabbage.

Cabbages who have been brainwashed
To believe all the lies they're told,
And with every lie they blindly accept
Their teacher's lies become ever bold.

They boldly teach them still more lies
And teach them how to think and act,
Till the cabbages have soaked up so many lies
They cannot tell lies from fact.

Yes Generation-Sell-Out
Has replaced old Generation-X,
Where ‘X' questioned everything they were told
‘Sell-Out' believes the lies of those they elect.

So as the halls of academia
No longer strive to teach the truth,
They are nurturing educated cabbages
When they should be nurturing youth!
