The Saviour of Challenging Behaviour

The Saviour of Challenging Behaviour

Andy was the saviour of challenging behaviour

He came to change the world

And half the people in the room were swept away on Andy’s broom

And the other half just didn’t believe a word

 

Andy’s revolution took on the institution

As his disciples found their voice

The management were frightened the patients enlightened

So now’s the time to make a choice

 

And the misfit voices in his head that sang in perfect harmony

We have to set these people free

Let them be who they want to be

Their time is coming…

 

Andy took the struggle to the local Town Hall

And chained himself to the railings

Special education was in the doc and the council the architect of failings

 

Andy made the local news and a spot on the tv

He got everybody talking

But of the lawmakers never could agree

He was like a dead man walking

 

The misfit voices in his head that sang in perfect harmony

We have to set these people free

Let them be who they want to be

Their time is coming…

 

Andy didn’t stay for long but he left a big impression

Even now the patients talk about him with affection

Someone said the last they heard he was working in a school

Somewhere south of Liverpool

 

And the misfit voices in his head that sang in perfect harmony

We have to set these people free

Let them be who they want to be

Let them see who they want to see

Their time is coming

 

The time is coming….
