We Rule the School Lyrics

On a beech tree rudely carved
Nc was here
Why did she do it?
Was she scared or sad?

On a beech tree rudely carved
Nc loved me
Why did she do it?
Was she bored, or pushed

Do something pretty while you can
Don't be a fool
Reading the gospel to yourself is fine

Do something pretty while you can
Don't be afraid
Skating a pirouette on ice is cool On a bus stop in the town
"We rule the school"
Written for everyone to see and read

On a bus stop in the town
"We rule the school"
Written for everyone with eyes in their head

Do something pretty while you can
Don't fall asleep
Driving from California to new york

Call me a prophet if you like
It's no secret
You know the world is made for men
You know the world is made for men
You know the world is made for men
Not us

Thoughts & Meanings

tldr: its only about feminism if we're seeing feminism as the movement to defend and give equal importance to more emotional, kind and delicate attributes The last sentence of the song is “You know the world is made for men” and that is why it could be plainly considered a feminist song. The song encourages people to be more sensitive, to notice the little things and enjoy them with the example of pirouettes or graffiti. More than that, it seeks to support people that are already like that and urges them to continue being like that and enjoy the time they have in this world even if it is in many ways cruel to them. It also asks people to leave a mark in life however small it may be. As some curiosities; the song is set to a violin version of the Pachelbel’s canon and the group only released 1000 copies, it was their debut album.

I think it's about feminism but I'll investigate right now, gimmei a few minutes pleass?
