Hüsker Dü - Folk Lore lyrics

Women sewed the stars and stripes
And the men, they fought the wars
The children learned arithmetic
And everyone was poor

Young man was the hero of the day
Long long hours, short short pay

Lesson I learned in a history book, now
It's not what they taught me
Folk lore, folk lore, folk lore
Your mama never told you

Now the women scream for equal rights
Their man wants to have an affair
Children learn to hate the world
And no one seems to care

Lesson I learned in a history book, now
It's not what they taught me
Folk lore, folk lore, folk lore
Your mama never told you that

Some things never change
Some things stay the same
Some things rearranged
One thing I know for sure, your heroes always die
