Hey, DOH! Leave our kids alone: a song based on Pink Floyd's "Another Brick on the Wall"



Department of Health is planning to give out condoms to high school students, but Mayor Herbert Bautista and Senator Tito Sotto oppose this measure:
In a text message to key officials on Sunday, Bautista ordered a ban on the distribution of condoms in Quezon City public schools. But he clarified that he would “allow the use of QC public health facilities” as distribution hubs. “The best way to course these condoms is through the health facilities,” Bautista told the Inquirer.

“Nothing in the RH (Reproductive Health) law allows the DOH to promote the violation of the law on statutory rape! High school students are mostly underage,” Sotto said in a text message when asked to elaborate his tweet. Asked how he could stop the DOH’s plan, the senator said: “Through the Commission on Appointments.” Sotto, a member of the powerful Commission, has already warned that Health Secretary Paulyn Jean Rosell Ubial would not get the approval of the Commission if she pushed through with the plan.

These developments remind me of the song of Pink Floyd, Another Brick on the Wall. It's a good tune but I'll change the lyrics a bit to change the persona of the speaker to that of a mother or a father of teenage students in a public school.

Another Brick on the Wall

by Pink Floyd

We don't need no education
We dont need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone!
All in all it's just another brick in the wall.
All in all you're just another brick in the wall.

Hey, DOH! Leave our kids alone

by Monk's Hobbit

We don't need this education
We don't need this birth control
No condom giving in the classroom
Please just leave our kids alone
Hey! DOH! Leave our kids alone
What you're doing is just taking bricks from the wall
What you're doing is just showing teens how to fall

We are the fathers and the mothers
We teach our children self-control
Within marriage bond is sex in bedroom
Please just leave our kids alone
Hey! DOH! Leave our kids alone
What you're doing is just taking bricks from our wall
What you're doing is just leading families to fall

What are you doing with gays in gay bars?
Why don't you teach them self-control?
The condoms litter in their bedrooms!
Please just leave our kids alone
Hey! DOH! Leave our kids alone
What you're doing is just banging heads on the wall
What you're doing is just finding scapegoats to call

The MSM are the real culprits
They spread the virus without control
Of all the cases accounting four-fiths
Please just leave our kids alone
Hey! DOH! Leave our kids alone
What you're doing is just plotting graphs on the wall
What you're doing is just making population fall



I hope someone can sing this song and post the video in You Tube, using the music of Pink Floyd's "Another Brick on the Wall" as melody. Here's the tune at 1:18. Note that I don't approve of the original lyrics.
