Many young people get Stuck in Stupid
Because, in their efforts to be grown-up
They act like children
And this is stupid

Some of them join the military
At the prompting of certain grown-ups
Who are Stuck in Stupid
And this is very stupid

Some of these young people go to Iraq
And take their being Stuck in Stupid to extremes
By treating the human beings there like refuse
And this is way beyond stupid

Some of these young people wake up
And, if they can handle it
Get Unstuck from Stupid
And this is not so stupid

Others stay Stuck in Stupid
And become generals, politicians, or mercenaries
Who teach young people how to be Stuck in Stupid
And this is the stupidest thing of all

Some of these generals, politicians, and mercenaries
Become respected personalities in society
And even run for President of the United States
And this is massively stupid

Meanwhile, some of those who've gotten smart
Resist the pull from those who are Stuck in Stupid
By setting a personal example for those who will listen
And this is very, very smart indeed

They and others, who've gotten smart
Become even more Unstuck from Stupid
By voting for the man who's not Stuck in Stupid
And this is the smartest thing of all
