Oh Christy Don’t You Know ? (Traditional - adapted Gram Partisans) (May 30)

Christy Clark, its time to change, the way you treat our schools is strange,
Now everybody is watching ……….. Oh Christy don’t you know?

Our schools have sunk while in your hands, to the lowest funded in the land,
Now everybody is watching …………Oh Christy don’t you know?

Oh Christy can’t you see, don’t you know? Oh Christy can’t you see, don’t you know?
Everybody is watching ………… Oh Christy don’t you know?

When you tore things up back in ’02, supports were cut and the class size grew,
Now everybody is watching………….. Oh Christy don’t you know?

For twelve long years, our kids have paid, for all the cuts that you have made,
Now everybody is watching ………… Oh Christy don’t you know?

The courts told you to make it right, but you still insist we fight,
Now everybody is watching ………… Oh Christy don’t you know?
\
Oh Christy can’t you see, don’t you know? Oh Christy can’t you see, don’t you know?
Everybody is watching ……… Oh Christy don’t you know?

Now you’ve made this bed and here we lie, but we’ll never stop, we’ll always try,
And everybody is watching ………….. Oh Christy don’t you know?

Now Christy it is up to you, you can bring change if you want to,
Everybody is watching …………… Oh Christy don’t you know?

Oh Christy can’t you see, don’t you know? Oh Christy can’t you see, don’t you know?
Everybody is watching ……….. Oh Christy don’t you know?
Everybody is wa-a-a-tching …..oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh Christy …..don’t you …. know?
