When ISTEP Was a Famous Dance
By Doug Martin

They're gonna privatize our air and chop off all our hair
And ship our kids to Pearson hell
Hedge fund man fishing, David Harris hissing
Todd Huston needs put in jail.

Bart Peterson, the Indy Star reports,
Is handsome as Doris Day 
But he sold off the schools, and cashed in all his jewels,
Take me back to the good ole days!

When ISTEP was a famous dance
And we all had a real good chance
When Tony Bennett was singing
And school bells were ringing
When ISTEP was a famous dance

Al Morrison's mad and he's driving to your school
And he's packing a pistol
He's a Walmart toy, he hates girls and boys
He sweats just like a Popsicle
I tell the kids at school don't look so down
Brian Bosma's really a slacker
When I was young age,   PACMAN was all the rage
And Ritz was a mighty good cracker

When ISTEP was a famous dance
And kids still had a chance
When David Frizzell was singing
And cellphone weren't ringing
When ISTEP was a famous dance

Hoosier School Heist and kindergarten lice
Kim Fidler give me a holler
When I was a pup, teachers weren't fed up
FIddian-Green was my color

Purdue's Putin thinks he's Isaac Newton,
He's a lapdog for the filthy rich.
Psychopaths in ties, I'm sick of white man lies
Mitch Daniels is a son-of-a-bitch!!!

When ISTEP was a famous dance
You and me had romance
We put our toes together and danced through nasty weather
Now we'll making love to the test.

When ISTEP was a famous dance
And kids still had a chance
Before Bruce was Elvis
And you still jumped my pelvis
When ISTEP was a famous dance
Now don't get me wrong singing this union song,
But there's a few things you should know
Back in the day, Bracey was the sage
the Waltons were a TV show

Please come to bed and tuck me in tight
There's so much I really miss
I love you like the sun, but Common Core has won
On McGraw Hill we shared our last kiss.

When ISTEP was a famous dance
And schools still had a chance
When Tony Bennett was singing
And school bells were ringing
When ISTEP was a famous dance
