social commentary

You've got to be taught
To hate and fear,
You've got to be taught
From year to year,
It's got to be drummed
In your dear little ear
You've got to be carefully taught.

You've got to be taught to be afraid
Of people whose eyes are oddly made,
And people whose skin is a diff'rent shade,
You've got to be carefully taught.

You've got to be taught before it's too late,
Before you are six or seven or eight,
To hate all the people your relatives hate,
You've got to be carefully taught!

you've got to be carefully taught from south pacific. isn't that biting commentary about what is considered a family value to some? circa 1958 and currently. pretty scary,no? i want one of those bumper stickers... hate is not a family value. ya'know.?
