55? 55?

55? 55?
Wait! Wait!
Did I get this straight?

I do not think
The editorial was in error
It wasn’t the speed limit
They were speaking of there

55? 55?
Are you just joshing me?
55? 55?
How can this possibly be ?

No child I know
Whose grades are that low
Will ever make a go
I believe this you know

Our grades at school
Back in the dark ages
Had to be above 80
Or our parents flew into rages

55? 55?
What in the world
Is going on?
55? 55?
Dumbing down of a nation
Be gone
