Thursday Kapolka notified the Stones that the lyric didn’t violate school policy and that the show would go on as scheduled Saturday. The response prompted the Stones to make a public appeal to Superintendent Andrew Ingall and to the media late Thursday night, asking that the lyrics be changed.
“This is clearly the wrong message,” Michael Stone said. “We hate doing this but our conscience is driving us.”
There are four students, including the Stones’ daughter, who will not be performing during the One Direction song because they’re opposed to the lyric choice.
Though other parents have told the Stones they agree with their objection, no other parents are appealing to the superintendent.
Mary Stone met with Hinz, and later high school Principal Mike Kapolka, to see if she could get them to change “get some” to “let’s go” in the lyrics to make the context less sexual.
Tonight let’s go……. and live while we’re young.
”MYSTERIOUS ONE” MY BUTT. HOW DARE YOU. look at this family-focused nap-loving tender kind generous softie, this thoughtful artistic empathetic golden-voiced dork, and try to insinuate ONE MORE TIME that he is a figure to be feared, EVEN IN JEST, AND I WILL FIGHT YOU. I WILL GO TO BATTLE FOR ZAYN.
