Chris Rice – 8Th Grade lyrics

Take a little trip with me back to junior high
Set the time machine to 1975
We just found out that momma's gonna have another kid
Back in the 8th grade

Follow me down the hall to the cafeteria
Remember the days when life was not so mysterious
Was dipping yesterday's corn dog in last week's ketchup
Where the worst thing I could mess up
Back in the 8th grade

Why does the past always seem safer?
Maybe because at least we know me made it
You can believe it, yeah, just like the 8th grade
When every day will come just the way the Lord ordained it
And why do we worry about the future?
Step out into the hall and feel the moment pass
Slam the locker, there's the bell, we're running to class

We're back in the 8th grade
'Cause Mr. Jackson told us, "Don't be late to geometry again"
I drop my books, sit down and mess with my hair

Suzie looks at me and smiles, I'm walking on air
Then I hear my name, I missed the question, I mumble something

The class is laughing, oh I love the 8th grade
