What Are They Teaching in Alabama?

Lyrics

What are they teaching in Alabama?
In Maine and Tennessee?
What are they teaching in Louisiana?

They’re passing resolutions
They’re stirring up confusion
They won’t teach evolution in school

But now the bible says
As everybody knows
God created everything in just one week
Six thousand years ago

Well it’s a story told in church on Sunday
But it has no place in class on Monday
But still they try to teach it in our schools

What are they teaching in Alabama?
In Maine and Tennessee?
What are they teaching in Louisiana?

They’re passing resolutions
They’re stirring up confusion
They won’t teach evolution in school

Now the Good Book’s full
Of inspiring tales
Of people having heart to hearts with god
Or getting swallowed up by whales

It’s got miracles and it’s got mystery
What it doesn’t have is actual history
But still they try to teach it in our schools

What are they teaching in Alabama?
In Maine and Tennessee?
What are they teaching in Louisiana?

They’re passing resolutions
They’re stirring up confusion
They won’t teach evolution in school

In our modern age of technology
We need to teach our kids
The latest science facts
In their entirety

So well before they make their way to college
They need real scientific knowledge
Let’s leave the Bible tales for Sunday school

What are they teaching in Alabama?
In Maine and Tennessee?
What are they teaching in Louisiana?

They’re passing resolutions
They’re stirring up confusion
They won’t teach evolution
There’s only one conclusion
One logical solution
Keep teaching evolution in school!
