High School

 

 

High School Saga

Ask for a hall pass
Going to the bathroom during class
I get sick cause I know I won't pass

The teacher thinks
somethings wrong with me
Cause I always got to leave

The valedictorian is smoking in the john
coming drunk to football games
whose he trying to put on

On Fridays the school colors
navy and blue
Its just the "in" thing to do

And all this time
shy Bernie's standing by
Wondering why
Our high school does just fine
Its cause Lucys in the john with Elton
everythings dynomite
Lucys in the john with Elton
Everythings excellant

If you're worried about passing this class too
Don't worry
I studied
last night listening to "Caribou"
Its the "In" thing to do

And the teachers say
"Go along ? Go along?
You don't even mention who sings this song"

But all this time
shy Bernie's standing by
Wondering why
Our high school does just fine
Its cause Lucys in the john with Elton
everythings dynomite
Lucys in the john with Elton
Everythings excellant

We're trying to act real cool
like we like high school
Bother the teachers
who think they're preachers
And play tricks on the ones who don't

As our valedictorian puts out his cigarette
I think its time to go back to class too
"How many minutes before the bell rings?"
"Only two"
Over the loud speaker, I think I hear "Caribou"
Its the "In" thing to do

But all this time
shy Bernie's standing by
Wondering why
Our high school does just fine
Its cause Lucys in the john with Elton
everythings dynomite
Lucys in the john with Elton
Everythings excellant
