So the previous post about Dem Bones reminds me, a lot of classics appear to be getting "simplified"
 
For example, Clementine used to be
 
... Thou art lost and gone forever,
Dreadful sorrow Clementine
,

but now it is
 
... You are lost and gone forever
Dreadful sorry Clementine


 
Loch Lomond has gone from
 
Oh, ye'll take the high road and I'll take the low road
And I'll be in Scotland afore ye


to
 
You'll take the high road and I'll take the low road
And I'll be in Scotland before you

 

What's up with all the stupidizing? Something to do with the modern education system?
