The Knowledge Lyrics

Artist: Janet Jackson
Album: Rhythm Nation

Insight to what's going on

Information keeps us strong

What you don't know can hurt you bad

Take it from me you'll be walkin' around sad

Cryin' for a better day

Until you educate for a better way

So if you wanna be in control

Ya gotta get yourself in the know



Chorus:

Get the knowledge

That you really want

The knowledge

Do you really want

It's the knowledge

What you really want

The knowledge

That you really want



Spreading vise don't believe the hype

You don't find the knowledge in a pipe

Too many lives go up in smoke

It's nice to laugh but don't be the joke

To get over get better

Try to be the possessor

Of the one thing we all need in life

To succeed take my advice



Repeat Chorus



Prejudice No!

Ignorance No!

Bigotry No!

Illiteracy No!

Listen it's up to everyone

If we're gonna change the way the world is run

The way to start is to rid the children of

Prejudice & ignorance

We've gotta teach our kids to read & write

That's the only way to win this fight for life

Education is the goal so

If you wanna be in the know

get the knowledge

It's the one thing we all need in life



Repeat Chorus
