Lifeboat Lyrics

Teacher: Good morning, class!
Class: Good morning, Mrs. Aryan!
Teacher: Today we're going to play a game!
Class: Yaaay!
Teacher: This game is called Lifeboat. All together...
Class: Lifeboat!
Teacher: Good! Lifeboat is a lesson in values clarification. Can you say values clarification?
Class: No.
Teacher: Values clarification is where your little minds decide which lives are worth living and which lives are worth...ahem...not living. Now here's how we play. A big ship just sank. There are five people on the lifeboat. But the lifeboat is only made for two. I'll list the five people on the chalkboard, and you, class, will decide which three will be thrown overboard. Are we ready?
Class: Yes, Mrs. Aryan.
Teacher: good! first, there's an old, old crippled grandfather. Second, there's a mentally handicapped person in a wheelchair.
Alison: What's mentally handicapped?
Teacher: It means they can never be a productive member of society. third, there's an overweight woman on welfare with a sniffling, whimpering baby.
Max: Is the baby on welfare too?
Teacher: Let's not push Mrs. Aryan...
Sydney: Who else is in the boat?
Teacher: A young, white doctor with blue eyes and perfect teeth, and Joan Collins. Now, class, take five minutes to make your decision. Time's up! Well class?
Class: Throw over grandpa 'cause he's getting pretty old
Throw out the baby or we'll all be catching its cold
Throw over fatty and we'll see if she can float
Throw out the retard and they won't be rockin' the boat
Teacher:Very good! That was fun, wasn't it?
Class: Yes, Mrs. Aryan
Teacher: For our next lesson, we're going to do an experiment.
Class: Yaaay!
Teacher: We're going to test the law of gravity, just like Galileo, by dropping two objects out the window --one heavy and one light-- to test which one hits the sidewalk first. Now what should we use for the light object? I'm thinking of something small and square...
Trey: An eraser?
Teacher: Good! And what shall we use for the heavy object? I'm thinking of something round and bouncy...Tommy, I haven't given you permission to leave your sea...Class, class, the bell has not rung. What are you...oooh! Class...put me down! Put me down this instant! Ooohh! Oooohhh!
Class: Throw over teacher and we'll see if she can bounce
We've learned our lesson
Teacher says perfection's what counts
She's getting old and gray and wears an ugly coat
Throw over teacher and we'll play another game of Lifeboat
Throw over grandpa 'cause he's getting pretty old
Throw out the baby or we'll all be catching its cold
Throw over fatty and we'll see if she can float
Throw out the retard and they won't be rockin' the boat
