Zero Tolerance

This song was created for Game of Bands round 96 : "Odd Times and No Rhymes III"

Lyrics:


ZERO TOLERANCE
(based on a true story)


VERSE1

Billy walked down to his locker
To get his needed books
Along came a bully who was off his balance
And giving odd, really weird glares

The bully knocked billy down
and started throwing blows
he was the the toughest guy in the whole borough
Punched billy in the cheek

CHORUS
Zero Tolerance
No violence allowed
Nothing tolerated
Them's the rules understand?

VERSE2

Jordan ran to his best friend's aid
And got knocked down himself
The no fighting rule they should have listened to
Plus they jeopardize their well-being

Jordan got repeatedly punched in the face
and put Billy in a headlock
The teacher is coming it's the saving action
Mr. McCarthy should have ran, not moseyed over

CHORUS
Zero Tolerance
No violence allowed
Nothing tolerated
Them's the rules understand?

VERSE3

Mr. McCarthy pulled the bully off of the boy
And held his arms very tight
The bully pulled free and punched the teacher in the face
So Mr. McCarthy pinned him to the floor

The crowd stood in a circle gawking
The bully struggled with all his might
Jordan and Billy wiped blood from their noses
When all of a sudden the principal yelled out!

CHORUS
Zero Tolerance
No violence allowed
Nothing tolerated
Them's the rules understand?

VERSE4

The principal yelled no fighting allowed!
He turned to the bully and said you're suspended!
Billy and Jordan smiled at the verdict
Until the principal said you're both suspended too!

No fighting means no fighting, the principal said.
Then he turned to Mr. McCarthy, still holding the bully,
And the principal said, YOU'RE SUSPENDED TOO!
Jaws dropped - Teachers can't fight either!

CHORUS
Zero Tolerance
No violence allowed
Nothing tolerated
Them's the rules understand?
