Baby we was making straight A's,
But we was stuck in the dumb days,
Don't take much to memorize your life,
I feel like I've been hypnotisized,
and then that magic man he come to town,
whoo wee,
he done spun my head around,
said recess is in session,
Two and two make five,
and now baby,
I'm alive,
oh yeah,
I'm alive.

And if you wanna be the teacher's pet,
Well baby you just better forget,
Rock got no reason,
Rock got no rhyme,
You better get me to school on time.

Oh you know I was on the honor role,
got good grades,
and got no soul
raise my hand before I can speak my mind,
I've been biting my tongue too many times,
And then that magic man said to obey,
(uh huh)
do what magic man do,
not what magic man say,
Now could I please have the attention of the class,
today's assignment,

and if you wanna be the teacher's pet,
well baby you just better forget,
rock got no reason,
rock got no rhyme,
you better get me to school on time.

This is my final exam,
now ya'll know who I am,
I might not be that perfect son,
but ya'll be rockin' when I'm done.

    This song brings back good memories back in the good ol' days. Me and my friend used to go down to the local park, boston massachusetts. We would just drink whiskey, sip some wine, smoke some weed livin' the good life of '68. Oh yeah, i've forgot to mention i'm a pedophile.

    Firstly, the first verse was very influential of what is happening to me at school right now. Y'see, i've been predicted straight a's by the school, and i'm underachieving dramatically.

    The chorus means so much to me too, just such, "bang tidy" lyrics.
