Four years, you'd think for sure
That's all you've got to endure
All the total dicks,
All the stuck-up chicks
So superficial,
So immature
And then when you graduate
You take a look around and you say
HEY WAIT
This is the same as where I just came from
I thought it was over
Oh that's just great!

The whole damn world
Is just as obsessed
With who's the best dressed
And who's having sex
Who's got the money
Who gets the honeys
Who's kinda cute
And who's just a mess

And you still don't have the right look
And you don't have the right friends
Nothing changes, but the faces, the names and the trends
High School Never Ends!

Check out the popular kids
You'll never guess what Jessica did
How did Mary Kate lose all that weight
And Katie had a baby so I guess Tom's straight
And the only thing that matters
Is climbing up that social ladder
Still care about your hair and the car you drive
Doesn't matter if you're sixteen or thirty-five

Reese Witherspoon
She's the prom queen
Bill Gates
Captain of the Chess team
Jack Black
The Clown
Brad Pitt
The quarterback
I've seen it all before
I want my money back!

The whole damn world is just as obsessed
With who's the best dressed and who's having sex
Who's in the club
And who's on the drugs
Who's throwing up, before they digest
And you still don't have the right look
And you don't have the right friends
And you still listen to the same shit you did back then
High School Never Ends!

High school never ends

The whole damn world is just as obsessed
With who's the best dressed
And who's having sex
Who's got the money
Who gets the honeys
Who's kinda cute
And who's just a mess
And I still don't have the right look
And I still have the same three friends
And I'm pretty much the same as I was back then
High School Never Ends!

High School Never Ends

High School Never Ends

Here we go again

    Life is'nt like highschool in a way because you have the choice to cut those people you dislike out of you're life and you don't have to put up with there bs anymore.
    But tbh, people aren't as gossipy as "highschool" (secondary school for us brit's)
    Life goes on :)

    Obviously, this oe explains itself. :)

    High school never ends because who you were high school becomes who you are later on...so obviously, the jocks, preps, sluts, whores, nerds, etc., stay the same.
