""Good evening, kids. Take your seats. Open up your Bibles I’m gonna chastise a rival so keep your eyes wide open The young soul lost control, made her first faul This is my duty to set the bounds
She grabbed my hand, took me in, placed me in front of a class She gave a hint I was the clou of her mass I’m in the middle of her Holy of Holies, I have no worries! I saw dusty icons on the walls I saw needles and stones So she put a paper bag on my head She pointed finger at me, and then she said:
Dear Lord, forgive me as I’m slapping this sinful child By your hand I’m led so I will show what is wrong and what is right Choose your label cuz I’m mercy, merciful Put your knuckles on the table, meet my friend Ferule Who’ll punish you!
When their prejudice let us down We stand firmly on our ground Don’t let their school make a fool of you Because the teachers may be fools too
Laws chalked on a blackboard Can’t be erased until it gets boring The lady spoke and then she choked On the convictions oh so alluring She made a pause in her verbal overdose My paper bag slipped down on the floor I took a look around, there was no sanctuary Desks empty, the school was all imaginary
Teacher, teacher! Self-proclaimed preacher Under the flag of welfare your lectures start to blare! We need no soap shoved down our throats So keep your monologues unrated and remote I am a bad example of order This life is not a prison and you are not a warden Please, teacher teacher! Leave us alone As we accept life lessons from no one
Your idols scream to me throwing shame on my face As I turn away from infamy and disgrace I smile to you, cuz I want you to see How I break the rules in front of your trinity ""

"Come Dancing" by The Kinks was inspired by the older sister of Ray Davies, who would make guys take her out dancing and spend their money on her, only to send them home frustrated with just a peck on the cheek.
It was never a big hit, but "She's A Rainbow" became one of the most popular Rolling Stones songs in the digital age when it started showing up in commercials (iMac, Photoshop), and TV shows (American Horror Story: Coven, Ted Lasso).
"St. Elmo's Fire (Man In Motion)" was not written for the movie, but for Rick Hanson, a wheelchair athlete whose 1985 "Man In Motion" tour logged 24,856 miles on his wheelchair in 34 countries while raising $26 million for spinal cord research.
Robin Thicke and his mom, Gloria Loring are the first the first ever mother-and-son to have both tallied top 10 singles on the Hot 100 as solo artists or duos. Loring reached #2 with Carl Anderson in 1986 with "Friends and Lovers" and Thicke topped the chart in 2013 with "Blurred Lines."
