Her voice is echoed in my mind
I count the days till she is mine
Can't tell my friends cause they will laugh
I love a girl from senior class, woaaa
I day dream through my freshman math
While she fills our her college apps
I'll show her a world where we belong
But she'll have to drive us to the prom

That's what I go to school for
Even though it is a real bore
You can call me crazy
She is so amazing
That's what I go to school for
Even though it is a real bore
Girlfriends I've had plenty
But she's the one that I need
That's what I go to school for
That's what I go to school for

Her boyfriend's just turning nineteen
But that doesn't bother me
He's back at college out of town
I find a reason to go round
I climb a tree outside her home
To make sure that she's alone
She looks up and sees me there
So I can't help but stop and stare

That's what I go to school for
Even though it is a real bore
You can call me crazy
She is so amazing
That's what I go to school for
Even though it is a real bore
Girlfriends I've had plenty
But she's the one that I need
That's what I go to school for
That's what I, what I, what I go to school for

Everyone that you see all day knows you're looking at me in a different way
I guess that's why my marks are getting so high
I can see those tell tale signs telling me that I was on your mind
I could see that you want it more when you told me that I'm what you go to school for
I'm what you go to school for
She's made her choice and I'm the one
At least till graduation comes
We drive past school and wave goodbye
My friends they can't believe their eyes

That's what I go to school for
Even though it is a real bore
You can call me crazy
She is so amazing
That's what I go to school for
Even though it is a real bore
Girlfriends I've had plenty
But she's the one that I need
That's what I go to school for
That's what I, what I, what I go to school for

    It's about falling in love with an older girl at school and she gives you a reason to get up and go to school everyday.

    (Nicklvr15 heres my advice- just ask him who he likes in your school if he says no1 then ask him out) never give up on love
