LUCKA 1: Pink Floyd

När det kommer till lärarkritik i musikens universum är förmodligen Pink Floyds The Wall en av de skivor som man tänker på allra först. På låten Another Brick in the Wall Part. 2. sjunger ju en barnkör ”Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone!”. Låten som kommer innan Another Brick…(P.2.) heter ”The happiest days of our lives”, en uppenbart ironisk titel, för här berättas det om hur vissa lärare skadar skolbarnen:

”When we grew up and went to school
There were certain teachers who
Would hurt the children in any way they could.
By pouring their derision
upon anything we did
Exposing every weakness
However carefully hidden by the kid.
But in the town it was well known
When they got home at night
Their fat and psychopathic wives
Would thrash them within inches of their lives!”

ur ”The Happiest Days of Our Lives”, The Wall (Pink Floyd, 1979)

Schoolboys in disgrace

Från albumet ”Schoolboys in disgrace” (1975) av The Kinks


Headmaster, this is my confession,
I’ve been such a little fool.
I’ve dishonored one who trusted me,
I have broken all the rules.
I’ve been such a little fool.
Don’t tell all my friends I bent over,
Don’t tell them you made me cry.
Don’t tell them I’ve been sacrificed,
Don’t tell all my friends or I’ll die.
Headmaster don’t beat me I beg you,
I know that I’ve let you down.
Headmaster please spare me I beg you,
Don’t make me take my trousers down.
