I've been workin' all night, man
What's a young kid gotta do to blow up
This life's becoming somethin' I can't stand
Tell those people go home I don't wanna grow up
I drank too much again last night, damn
Woke up with a hangover time to roll up
Been workin' so hard can't they understand,
So many kids like me, we just wanna blow up, blow up, blow up, blow up,
Blow up, blow up
Yeah, we just wanna blow up

I just wanna prove a teacher wrong
Tell them that my own degree didn't help me write a song
Only payin' attention of the girl with the thong, and the skirt so short
It's like she barely has a lawn
And uh, sick of hearin' bout my alcohol abuses and makin' up extravagent
Excuses, they're useless
So deuces to the classroom, welcome to your dreams that made you without a
Major, homie, welcome to the team

I've been workin' all night, man
What's a young kid gotta do to blow up
This life's becoming somethin' I can't stand
Tell those people go home I don't wanna grow up
I drank too much again last night, damn
Woke up with a hangover time to roll up
Been workin' so hard can't they understand,
So many kids like me, we just wanna blow up, blow up, blow up, blow up,
Blow up, blow up
Yeah, we just wanna blow up

Waking up, weights become a trend
I roll over in the morning, random girl up in my bed
And I swear she was a cutie, she was lookin' like a ten
But the proof is in the puddin I was obviously there
Obviously put it on a rich girl's dad
Just tryna make money like a rich girl dad
So deuces to the school life, fucking with a game
What made ya without a major, homie, look what I became

I've been workin' all night, man
What's a young kid gotta do to blow up
This life's becoming somethin' I can't stand
Tell those people go home I don't wanna grow up
I drank too much again last night, damn
Woke up with a hangover time to roll up
Been workin' so hard can't they understand,
So many kids like me, we just wanna blow up, blow up, blow up, blow up,
Blow up, blow up
Yeah, we just wanna blow up, blow up, blow up, blow up, blow up, blow up

Yeah we just wanna blow up
I've been workin' all night, man
What's a young kid gotta do to blow up
This life's becoming somethin' I can't stand
Tell those people go home I don't wanna grow up
I drank too much again last night, damn
Woke up with a hangover time to roll up
Been workin' so hard can't they understand,
So many kids like me, we just wanna blow up, blow up, blow up, blow up,
Blow up, blow up
Yeah, we just wanna blow up

    I think it's all about a typical 18-25 trying there hardest in life and is just trying to "blow up" (ie. Get somewhere). To "blow up" is slang for becoming successful. He's trying to be successful at life (work and play). There is an element of not 'needing' an education but you do need to work hard and gain life skills to become good at what you do.

    (i wouldn't take this as 'don't worry about education' but more an if you come out of the system without a degree it isn't the end of the world! )

    Are these the official lyrics?

    And the skirt so short it's like she barely has 'a lawn' ?
    Isn't it supposed to be, like she barely has 'it on'?

    Have no idea what it means but it's a catchy song.

    I think that this song is crap and that he should not be writing songs about teenagers wanting to blow up... Sorry sam

    This song makes me want to throw up. Perhaps he wouldn't hate life if he didn't get smashed every night . Sounds like he does too much blowing up to me.
