Dear Mr. Floyd

Re: Another Brick In The Wall

I am writing to express my concern about the negative influence you seek to exert on many listeners through the young vocalists who feature on your recent “hit” record “Another Brick in the Wall”. 

 The fact that the lyric is "We don't need no education" I believe clearly indicates that they are, to the contrary, in desperate need of decent schooling. Double negative constructions are the product of a slovenly mind and perhaps an indication of grammatical, and consequently moral, ill health. In fact, as the song progresses, it becomes increasingly clear that these urchins are indeed the least eloquent collection of youths I have had the misfortune to hear emanating from my stereogram.  "Teachers leave them kids alone" indeed!  

I shall be passing my concerns to the Board of Education forthwith.
