A Pragmatic Progression
Music and lyrics by John Christie
Engineered by Sam Christie-Sgro
---------------------------------------------

John Dewey, John Dewey
You didn’t like the way
That school was taught
John Dewey, John Dewey
The kids weren’t learning the things they ‘ought

Memorization across the nation
Is something that’s tough to remember
Making school mean something Is what you wanted
Don’t stop in June
And pick up in September

Adapting to the environment
Is what we do
It makes a thinking person
Out of me and you
Teach me how to be
A better citizen
I need knowledge to understand
The state we’re in

Proportions can be learned in cooking school
Calculatin’ time and distance from the back of a mule
Figure by doin’
Forget about structure
Just gimme something I can do for a living

If a little kid can’t figure it out
No need for a teacher to scream and shout
Let them put their hands on it
Get it wrong doggon it
They’ll learn it by themselves
Without a doubt

John Dewey, John Dewey
Hit me with some of that
Progressive thought
Hey John Dewey won’t you get progressive with me?
Not Existential
Hey John Dewey won’t you get progressive with me?
No, no not essential
Hey John Dewey won’t you get progressive with me?
I learn by doin’
Hey John Dewey won’t you get progressive with me?
