School days

School days

Dear old golden rule days

Up in the morning and out to school

The teacher is teachin the golden rule

American history and practical math

Studyin hard and hopin to pass

And workin your fingers right down the bone

The guy behind you wont leave you alone

Ring ring goes the bell

The cook in the lunchroom ready to sell

Youre lucky if you can find a seat

Youre fortunate if you have time to eat

Back in the classroom open your books

The teacher dont know how mean she looks

Ha ha ha ha ha

Are you ready?

Soon as three oclock rolls around

You finally lay your burden down

Throw down your books get out of your seat

And down the halls and into the street

Up to the corner and round the bend

Right to the juke joint you go in

Drop the coin right into the slot

You gotta hear somethin thats really hot

With the one you love youre makin romance

And all day long youve been wantin to dance

Feelin the music from head to toe

And round and round and round you go

Hail hail rock and roll

Deliver me from the days of old

Long live rock and roll

The beat of the drums loud and bold

Rock rock rock and roll

The feelin is there, body and soul
