Status Quo

Performed by barbra streisand



Are you ready to hear your lesson for the day?

-yes, teacher! yes, teacher!

Are you ready to learn what history has to say?

-yes, teacher! yes, teacher!

Then take your books and follow me to 1776 ad

And as the history page is turned we will see what we can learn

-yes, teacher! yes, teacher! yes, teacher!



In 1776 tom paine was writing books with a might and main

The tory said "now man alive"

Stop giving out with this here liberty jive

-stop giving out with this here liberty jive



Don't sing of people's rights that way

They might believe in what you say

So stop your song it's not polite

Pipe down before you start a fight



-you don't say, teacher, is that right?



Aha, but tom paine looked ahead

And to those tories thomas said no, no, no, no

When you got to go, you got to go

You can't stand still on freedom's track

If you don't go forward, you go back

You can't giddyup by saying whoa

And sitting on your status quo



-yes, teacher! yes, teacher! yes, teacher! yes, teacher!



To washington at valley forge

A wise guy whispered slow down, george

Why start up trouble for the king

This freedom racket is a corny thing



-this freedom racket is a corny thing



Your troops are ickys they can't move

You'll never get them in the groove

So if you're wise, you'll just lay low

And play with the guys that have the dough



-you don't say teacher, is that so?



Aha, but george just looked ahead

And to that tory georgie said...no...no, no, no

When you got to go, you got to go

You can't stand still on freedom's track

If you don't go forward, you go back

You can't giddyup by saying whoa

And sitting on your status quo



-yes, teacher! yes, teacher!



Now paul revere saw a bellfry light

And that boy rode to town one night

Sang to the farmers near and far

Here come the british beating eight to the bar



One slippery tory said now paul

You're manners aren't nice at all

Turn back, don't be an old hep cat

The right people don't sing like that



-butpaul revere turn him down flat

Aha, that's right, he rode ahead

And to that tory paul just said, no, no, no, no

When you got to go, you got to go

You can't stand still on freedom's track

If you don't go forward, you go back

You can't giddyup by saying whoa

And sitting on your status quo



Yes, teacher! yes, teacher! yes, teacher

So, students now you're hep, don't stop!

Keep stepping to that freedom hop

Although the tory's beef and blow

To keep you sitting on your status quo



-to keep you sitting on your status quo



When they say let's stand still a bit

Give up some rights, no harm in it

Remember those are just the tricks

That did not work in 76



-now ain't that right, the same old tricks?



Though torys talk: don't be misled

And do what all those others said



No, no, no, no

When you got to go, you got to go

You can't stand still on freedom's track

If you don't go forward, you go back

You can't giddyup by saying whoa

And sitting on your status ...

Sitting on, yes, sittin' on your, status...



Quo!



Oh!
