Paul Simon – Hey, Schoolgirl lyrics

Hey schoolgirl in the second row
The teacher's lookin' over
So I got to whisper way down low
To say who-bop-a-loo-chi-bop
Let's meet after school at three

She said, "Hey babe
But there is one thing more
My school is over at half past four
Maybe whe we're older, then we can date
O-oh, let's wait"

She said, "Hey babe, I got a lot to do
It takes me hours
'Til my homework's through
Someday we'll go steady
So don't you fret
O-oh, not yet"


Then she turned around to me
With that gleam in her eye
She said, "I'm sorry if I passed you by
I'm gonna skip my homework
Gonna cut my class
Bug out of here real fast"

Hey schoolgirl in the second row
Now we're going steady
Hear the words that I want you to know
Well it's who-bop-a-loo-chi-bop
You're mine, I knew it all the time
