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?
