C. . . . . . . . . . . . Am
1. My teacher used to drug me.
F. . . . . . . . . . . . G7
No, it wasnít drugs at all.
Worse, she drug me to read
Words made me want to bawl.

Chorus:


Poor little fool, Oh yea,
I was a fool, Uh huh


2. During class, she tested me,
Vocabulary made me cry
She fooled me into studying,
I though it was a lie.


Chorus


3.She told me she cared about me,
ĎCause reading would make me smart
Best of all, she said to me
Reading would change my heart.


Chorus


4.Next year she was gone.
Sheíd not lied to me
Reading changed my life,
Words have set me free.


Chorus
Iím not a fool
Oh yea, i'm not a fool anymore.


5.Now Iím a Drug Free Reader
What, never thought I'd see
The day when a book would be
A special thing to me.


Iím not a fool, Oh yea
Iím a drug free reader thatís cool!
