You’ve Got To Be Carefully Taught

From the musical South Pacific

Matthew Morrison, Oscar Hammerstein II

You’ve got to be taught to hate and fear

You’ve got to be taught from year to year

It’s got to be drummed in your dear little ear

You’ve got to be carefully taught


You’ve got to be taught to be afraid

Of people who’s eyes are oddly made

And people who’s skin is a different shade

You’ve got to be carefully taught


You’ve got to be taught before it’s too late

Before you are six or seven or eight

To hate all the people your relatives hate

You’ve got to be carefully taught


You’ve got to be carefully taught
