Movement Ii - School Lyrics - Paul Mccartney

Boys 

We're here in school today to get a perfect education, 

Yes, we're going up. 

We're keen to learn the rules and laws that civilization taught us 

Yes, we're growing up. 

Not for ourselves, b 

But for the whole world were we born. 

And we were born in liverpool. 

 

Our teachers say that ignorance will always drag us down, 

It's like a nagging cough. 

 

Shanty (thrown away) 

But I can say that looking back, 

The most important thing I found was sagging off! 

Not for the whole world. 

But for yourself were you born. 

And you were...

Shanty and boys 

Born in liverpool. 

 

Boys 

Not birmingham 

Nor edinburgh. 

Not manchester 

Or sunderland. 

 

Shanty 

Being born where you were born 

Carries with it certain responsibilities. 

 

Boys 

This school is good for us. 

 

Shanty 

This school is only good for those 

Who want to learn from books. 

 

You'll lose your sense of purpose... 

 

Boys 

But we dare not answer back, 

We're scared of teacher's looks. 

Not for ourselves, 

But for the whole world were we born. 

And we were born in liverpool. 

 

Shanty 

Not coventry 

 

Headmaster 

Or solihull. 

 

Boys 

Not scarborough 

 

Shanty 

Nor inverness. 

Being born where you were born 

Carries with it certain responsibilities. 

 

Headmaster 

Walk in single file out of the classroom, 

Down the stairs and into the playground. 

 

Boys 

Through the school gates, 

Cross the road, and over the cemetery fence, 

Down the hill to where the grave-stones 

Lie inviting in the sun. 

 

Settle down. 

Settle down. 

Let the afternoon slip by. 

Settle down. 

Settle down. 

It's the perfect place for a kip. 

 

(shanty falls asleep on a grave-stone and dreams) 

 

Shanty 

 

Kept in confusion, 

Trapped by illusion, 

Thinking of speaking my mind. 

Dreams of the future, 

Ghosts of the past left behind. 

 

Constantly drifting, 

Endlessly lifting 

More weight than one man can bear. 

Into the future, 

Ghosts of the past everywhere. 

 

Men's chorus (ghosts) 

You're sleeping amongst us, 

We're in your dream, 

Who are you? 

Why call us? 

 

What does this mean? 

Disturbing our slumber, 

You move so fast. 

 

Shanty 

Ghosts of the past. 

Tossing and turning, 

Somehow I'm learning 

Secrets I'd rather not know. 

Can't it be simple? 

Why does it have to be so? 

 

Mary dee (as ghost) 

I ll always be here, 

I ll never leave you, 

I ll always be in your mind. 

Dreams of the future, 

Ghosts that the past left behind. 

 

Women s chorus (ghosts) 

You re sleeping amongst us. 

We re in your dream. 

Who are you? 

Why call us? 

What does this mean? 

 

Full chorus (ghosts) 

Disturbing our slumber, 

You move so fast. 

 

Shanty and mary dee (as ghost) 

Ghosts of the past. 

 

(later, back in school) 

 

Headmaster 

Boys, this is your teacher. 

Her name is miss inkley. 

She will reach you spanish. 

She was in the war 

Fighting with the troops. 

You may call her sir!

You will learn a song 

In a foreign tongue.
