lyrics

Lyrics:
They teachin Chicago !! Hey
The Town by the Lago ! Whoa
They fight for Chicago
So we gotta Follow !!! Now
Chicago Teacher !! Hey
They fight for tomorrow!!
Chicago Teacher
We gotta follow !!
Whoa!!

I never met a teacher that taught to be rich
So know when they fight they fight for yo kids
Know when they strike they strike so we live
In city that dont benefit just the rich
The funds allocated need rearrangement
They fund Lincoln Yards - but they dont fund the babies
$95 million to teach the police
$100 million for brutality
The fight is way bigger than their salaries
The things that they fight for it matters to me
A tale of two cities So who walkin with me ?
Lets take the streets take over the city!
They got some points the Mayor had choices
So the teachers got no choice - but to raise their voices!
The city got money - how do they use it ?
Its quite confusin the children are losing

They fightin for nurses in -all of the schools
They need some librarians in -all of the schools
They need counselors in -all of the schools !!
Fund all of the schools !! Fund All of the schools!!

What do you do when a students deported?
Its way more than
Money they need some resources !
What do you do when your student gets shot?
How do you teach when the block is so hot ?
They raise the rent Momma get stressed
Student shows up an emotional mess
Teacher is mad cuz he got like 50 students in the class Homie you do the Math !
Real estate builder hes always chillin
The money they give him shouldve went to the children
His kids are chillin
How do we never have heat in this building ?
Whose really the villains ?!!!

They teachin Chicago !! Hey
The Town by the Lago ! Whoa
They fight for Chicago
So we gotta Follow !!! Now
Chicago Teacher Hey
They fight for tomorrow!!
Chicago Teacher
We gotta follow !!
Whoa!!

They fightin for nurses in -all of the schools
They need some librarians in -all of the schools
They need counselors in -all of the schools !!
Fund all of the schools !! Fund All of the schools!!
They fightin for nurses in -all of the schools
They need some librarians in -all of the schools
They need counselors in -all of the schools !!
Fund all of the schools !! Fund All of the schools!!
