Your story’s sad to tell a teenage ne’er-do-wellMost mixed up non-delinquent on the blockYour future’s so unclear now, what’s left of your career nowCan’t even get a trade-in on your smileBeauty school drop-out, no graduation day for youBeauty school drop-out, missed your midterms and flunked shampooWell at least you could have taken time to wash and clean your clothes upAfter spending all that dough to have the doctor fix your nose upBaby get moving (better get moving), why keep your feeble hopes aliveWhat are you proving (what are you proving)? You’ve got the dream, but not the driveIf you go for your diploma, you could join a steno poolTurn in your teasin’ comb and go back to highschoolBeauty school drop-out, hangin’ around the corner storeBeauty school drop-out, it’s about time you knew the scoreWell they couldn’t teach you anything, you think you’re such a lookerBut no customer would go to you, unless she was a hookerBaby don’t sweat it (don’t sweat it), you’re not cut out to hold the jobBetter forget it (forget it), who wants their hair done by a slobNow your bangs are curled, your lashes twirled, and still the world is cruelWipe off that angel face and go back to highschoolBaby don’t blow it, don’t put my good advice to shameBaby you know it, even dear abby’s say the sameNow I’ve called the shot, get off the pot, I really gotta flyGotta be goin’ to that maltshop in the skyBeauty school drop-out, go back to highschoolBeauty school drop-out, go back to highschoolBeauty school drop-out, go back to highschool
