“We really don’t censor the topics that students come up with,” school spokesman Phil Giaramita told Fox News & Commentary.
Yes, they just were all sitting around coloring ponies and trucks and decided to write about the struggles of the proletariat...

Giaramita said the song was part of a program sponsored by Kid Pan Alley. The boys and girls worked with a facilitator to come up with a theme and lyrics for a song. The songs are not allowed to promote any political or personal agenda.
Bingo!
