"The Little Red Schoolhouse" Lyrics

Father Einstein

Verse
In his little red schoolhouse James Thomson feels alone,
His parents have part company and left behind no place called home.
And in his little private mad house James spends all his days,
Struggling to come to terms with what's been taken from him, thrown away.
Dad broke his promise, followed his own course,
Mom has lost her beauty ever since the divorce.

Chorus
Every schoolboy knows, a bleeding heart is how we learn,
That life's not easy, that real-life's not always fun.
But even though we're cut in two and all the light's blocked from our view,
Every schoolboy knows that we'll always come through.

Verse
In his little red schoolhouse the torture takes its toll,
His friends talk out of earshot as the Teacher smiles and calls the roll.

And in his little private mad house there's no easy path,
There are no easy answers and no short cuts that are smooth as glass.
After school he wanders in the woods by himself,
He's only years nine old, a child out of his depth.

Repeat Chorus

Bridge
So never take for granted what you have,..
And never take for granted what you had,..

Final Chorus
'Cos every schoolboy knows, a bleeding heart is how we learn,
That life's not easy, that real-life's not always fun.
But even though we're cut in two and all the light's blocked from our view,
Every schoolboy knows that we'll always come through.
Every schoolboy knows we will always come through.
