Lyrics

The subject of this lecture are: That God to solomon says
Train the child in the way that you should go
And when he gets old he will not depart from it

Lots of people in the world
Of course, you cannot blame them
God has given them children
And they don't know what to train them

When you educate an untrained child
That's brought up full of sin
They just only got sense enough
If they forge notes and go to the pen

Let us train our children
And try to keep down so much sin
'Cause it'll be too late to cry
When you see them going to the pen

Lots of those little womanish girls
That thinks themselves to be grand
They will stand on the corners at night
Making dates with a married man

Those little manish boys
With a hat sitting on one strand of hair
Will go marry some woman's nice little girl
And ain't got nowhere to carry her

Education is alright
I will tell you before you start
Before you educate the head
Try to educate the heart

Writer(s): WASHINGTON PHILLIPS
