SOCIAL STUDIES BUDDIES


Someday you might meet a person that you didn't know
You'll listen to them talk til you decide it's time to go
And you may not remember them at all until that night
And that's when you will wish he'd treated you right.

Every now and then a stranger passes you on the street
You can't avoid eye contact though you never really meet
And so you turn around as if you hope that he does too
Well that's when you will wish he'd cared about you.

Curiosity 'bout everyone we see
Developing new friendships
doesn't work for you and me
Animosity 'bout every human being
Social studies, where's my buddies gone/now?

Last October you came over with your cousin Jake
We tried to have a conversation but I made the mistake
Of asking him to loan me seven dollars for a cab
And that's when I had wished you'd picked up the tab.

Curiosity 'bout everyone we see
Developing new friendships
doesn't work for you and me
Animosity 'bout every human being
Social studies, where's my buddies gone/now?

Cause that was when he slapped my face
And then you put him in his place
My cheek turned red and swollen up
You threw a nickel in his cup
I felt as bad as I could feel
As we jumped in the automobile
Curriculum we chose was
Social Studies Buddy's bloody nose.
