Intro:Bb F C Gm *2   C  F  C  F

C              F      C          F
In a deep dark jungle long time ago
C                F 
Lived a lonesome caveman
Dm                Gm  Em
He was a solitary soul
C                F
And he spent his playtime
C                 F
Chewing meat from bones.
C                     F 
He didn't know how to talk much
C                   F  
He only knew how to groan
        Bb                      F
Then he lifted up his hands and reached to the sky
C                  Gm
Let out a yell and no one replied.
 Bb                     F
Frustration and torment tore him inside
        C              Gm           C            Gm  
Then he fell to the ground and he cried and he cried.
         D         C
But then education saved the day.
Am                      G
He learned to speak and communicate
D         C
Education saved the day.
Am                     G
He thanked God for the friends he made.

C                       F
'Cos everybody needs an education
C                  F
Everybody needs an education.
Dm                    Gm        Em
Black skin, red skin, yellow or white,
C                  F
Everybody needs to read and write
C                  F
Everybody needs an education.

 Bb F C Gm *2

Bb                      F
Thank the day when that primitive man
           C                          Gm
Learned to talk with his brothers And live off the land.
Bb                      F
He left his cave and he moved far away
       C                                 Gm
And he lived with his friends in a house that they'd made
   Bb                      F  
He learned to think and to work with his brain
       C                                  Gm
And he astounded his friends with all the knowledge he gained
   Bb                 F
He wrote it down on a rock that he found
       C              Gm               C         Gm
And he showed all his friends and they passed it around

         D         C
And then education came that day.
Am                    G
The day it came was a sacred day.
D         C
Education came that day
Am                     G 
He thanked God for the friends he'd made.

Well man built a boat and he learned how to sail
       C                 G
And he travelled far and wide
        C                       G
Then he looked up above saw the stars in the sky
A                    C
So he learned how to fly.

Thanks to all the mathematicians
          C                         G
And the inventors with their high I.Q.s
And the professors in their colleges
Trying to feed me knowledge
A                      C
That I know I'll never use.

Bb                    F 
Thank you sir for the millions of words
            C                         Gm
That you've handed me down and you've told me to learn
Bb                    F 
But I've got words in my ears and my eyes
     C           Gm         C          Gm
I've got so many facts that I must memorize
        D           C
Because education's doing me in
Am                    G
I want to stop but my head's in a swim
D         C
Education drives me insane
Am                     G
I can't recall all the facts on my brain.
D         C
Education came that day
Am                    G
The day it came was a sacred day
D         C
Education saved the day
Am                 G
