lyrics

If I were your teacher I would beg you to insist to fight with me and not let me get away with anything.

No matter how I may sound, I am really only mortal; and I love you very much, and feel responsible for you, I am not always right. We depend on each other: the old and the young; to learn from each other.

If I were your teacher I would beg you to ask me why, for example, your history books are the way they are. It is my responsibility also to give you as true a version of your history as I can, since it is through your sense of your own history that you arrive at your identity.

My responsibility is to teach you to think. This is not any easy thing to do. If I want you to think, I must teach you to think about everything. I must teach you that there is a reason for everything you do and you must find that reason.

If I were you I would put me on the spot. Ask me the most difficult questions that you can – and I will not be able to answer them but my responsibility is to hear them. And when you ask your question – any question – you begin to know more about what you really think.

That's all I have to say… now you're gonna ask me questions.
