Teach The Children's Museum Well

New song parodies have just arrived. With apologies to Crosby, Stills, Nash, Young & Mitchell.

Teach Your Children
You on the museum board
There is a law that you must live by
So please think for yourself
Because Grant Park is not a good buy.

Teach your children well,
This PR hell will slowly go by,
And keep them from Daley's schemes
The place he picked, the one that makes us all cry

Don't you ever ask him why, if he told you, you would cry,
So just look at him sigh and know he won't budge

And you, in the other wards,
Must know the fears that Grant Park won't last
And so please help them with your voice,
All seek the truth before the votes cast.

Teach your neighbors well,
Their children's hell will slowly go by,
And tell them of his schemes
The place he picked, the one makes us all cry

Don't you ever ask him why, if he told you, you would cry,
So just look at him and sigh and know he won't budge

Big Yellow Taxi
They paved Grant Park
And put up a parking lot
With a kid's museum, a boutique
and a swinging hot spot
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Till it's gone
They paved Grant Park
And put up a Children's Museum

They took all the trees
And put them in the kid's museum
And they charged all the people
nine and a half bucks just to see 'em
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Till it's gone
They paved Grant Park
And they put up a Children's Museum

Late last night
I heard loud rum-ble-ing sounds
And a big earth mover
Took away my favorite land
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Till it's gone
They paved Grant Park
And put up a Children's Museum
