School is out now we're gonna have some fun.
We're gonna make like we are the only ones.

I'm gonna buy a piece of the sky
And sell passin' clouds.
I'm gonna be a mayor of some small town
And tax the crowds.
I'm gonna be a local surveyor
And study the foreman's girl.
I'm gonna line up some of the finest
Girls that are in the world.

We're comin' out of school today
And we're so happy, yes, to be alive.
It's gonna be the best day,
The best day of our lives.

(Mmmm mmm mmm...)

I'm gonna be a history maker
And call myself Richard the Third.
I'm gonna buy an amplifier
And shout out "Have you heard?"

We're comin' out of school today
And we're so happy, yes, to be alive.
It's gonna be the best day,
The best day of our lives.

We're comin' out of school today, baby,
We're comin' out of school today.
Hey, comin' out of school today.
Oh, out, out, School is out, a school is out, out.
