Educated: First Poem

An old lady learning her ABC

Taking her lessons on 123

'Cause they say she's uneducated

Life lessons is not enough

Worked all her life to feed her family

Sends her children to school

Takes care of the bills and expenses

Looks after the whole family


Educated: Second Poem

A child teaching her grandma

Learning the ABC

A child teaching her grandma

Learning the 123

A child teaching her grandma

Learning her words

A child teaching her grandma

Learning the name of the day

A child teaching her grandma

Learning the name of the month

A child teaching her grandma

Writing her name

A child teaching her grandma


Educated: Third Poem

A white haired man

Nervous in going to school

After sending all his children to school

After seeing them graduate from college

With all the diplomas on their wall

It is time to send himself to school

Children old enough to be his grandchildren

Will be his classmates in school


Educated: Fourth Poem

An old lady

Could hardly write her name

Don't know how to read or write

Owns a big business

Brings out a checkbook

Wearing diamonds in her ring

Lives in a big mansion

Driven by her own driver
