Songtekst

Adult, adult, adult education

Afternoon in the homeroom
They're about to let you go
And the locker slams
On the plan you had tonight

You've been messin' around with a boyfriend
Maybe better left alone
There's a wise guy that you know
Could put you right

In the lot the boy that's idling by
Doesn't rev your heart
'Cause it's only lonely spots
He shares with you

And the long halls and the gray walls
Are gonna split apart
Believe it or not
There's life after high school

And that's why the student body
Got a bad reputation, oh yeah, oh yeah
What they need is adult education
Back to school it's a bad situation, oh yeah, oh yeah
What you want is an adult education, oh yeah

Teacher don't know about how
To deal with the student body
And the underclassmen are
Flashing hot and cool

All your girlfriends care about
The watch you wear and talkin' about it
Believe it or not
There's life after high school

That's why the student body
Got a bad reputation oh yeah, oh yeah
What they need is adult education
Go back to school it's a bad situation, oh yeah, oh yeah
But what you want is an adult education, oh yeah

They're calling it a preparation
You're waiting for a separation
You're nothing but another odd number
Memories that you won't remember

So you got a little education
And a lot of dedication
But you want a little night school
Maybe some of it'll rub off on you

The boys are busy in the mirrors
Trying to imitate their heroes
You make it with a false surrender
More memories you won't remember

The senior with the junior Miss
I wonder what the junior wishes
That she could graduate to adult
That she could graduate to adult kisses

Adult education
Adult education
Adult education
It's a bad situation
Adult education

Educate, educate, education
The high border whose school's gettin' out other
The low border high school's are what you wear
Educate, educate, education
