about

A message to the Oklahoma Legislature, in support of public school teachers and their needs regarding a proper pay raise, basic classroom supplies, and general funding.

lyrics

Give'm what they want
That's funds for the classroom
Give'm what they want
That's a pay increase
Give'm what they want
Our teachers need support
Give'm what they want
So the kids can learn in peace

Give'm what they need
That's a better books budget
Give'm what they need
That's a safe class size
Give'm what they need
As the cost of living climbs
Give'm what they need
That's basic school supplies

Take it from the coffers
Of Big Business breaks
Take it from the coffers
Of oil subsidies
Take it from the coffers
And cut out all the pork
Take it from the coffers
Our teachers need releif

Do it for the future
Of the public school system
Do it for the future
Of the jobs to be had
Do it for the future
Of a better way of life
Do it for the future
And put it in their hands

Listen to the teachers
Who can't afford to teach
Listen to the teachers
And give them what they want
Take it from the coffers
And do it for the future
Listen to the teachers
And give'm what they need!
