Dewey Doo Wap

words and music by Kristin Lems c 2006


I found these quotes while reading Dewey for a graduate class, and I thought he needed a little pepping up with a doo-wap ditty!


Here are the words of the thinker John Dewey Some think him brilliant, some think him screwy He lived and he wrote 110 years ago But his words are as fresh as dew-y on a rose Dewey doo wap, dewey dewey doo wap dewey doo wap, dewey doo wap He said "Education is a process of living, Not a preparation for future living; Kids need full and ready use Of eyes and hearts and hand So those may be tools Ready for them to command," chorus "School is a form of community life and space to share the rich resources of the human race," He's not so radical, his ideas are not so rare But one century later, do we or don't we dare?
