Otis Redding – Stay In School lyrics

Hi, this is the big O, Otis Redding
I was just standing here thinking about you
Thought I'd write a song about you
And dedicate it to you
Take a listen
If you didn't go back to school this year
your really not groovy
Maybe you feel that school is a drag
it's just don't moving
But did you ever think about how square you look standing
in an employment line because school didn't empty you
You really ought to think about it
Without an education you could only be a tramp
Grow? Grain? Shoes, no haircut, just plain ole country
Don't worry 'bout the fellows gonna calling you green
Because your heading no future condition
You really ought to think about it
And further motto than that Otis Redding saved you very wise
Because you'll be at the top
When they get that and if they make it
When they get that and if they make it
When they get that and if they make it
You really ought to think about it
Think about it
Really ought to think about it
