lyrics

I never was a frat boy
In my seven years at school
But I'd still puff up and say dumb stuff
Like "Shakespeare was a fool"
And I never got a PhD
Not an STD or drinks for free
But I could find my way
Straight to the floor

It was $6.99 for thirty beers
But all you really needed was ten
To steal a bike and or go and get in a fight
With some dude who's going to make you regret it
I don't regret a lick of it
I learned a little but I lived a lot
If I could change just one thing
I would have sold a little pot

So kids who drop out of school
Be as wild as you can
Learn to break all of the rules
Keep an eye on the man
Or you'll start keeping score
I guess I'm not in college anymore

Academically I was challenged
But I was finally out on my own
Brand new crown, so determined and bound
To fail my lonely way back home
C, D, F, yes, A, B, no
My first year lasted two
I was put on probation for procrastination
Of having anything to do

I'm the first one on my daddy's side
To make it all the way to the end
That just means I put the money down
That I didn't really have to spend
A nine to five can keep you alive
But it feels like a dead man’s crawl
I can’t believe the frequency
These student loan collectors call

So kids who make it through school
Be as wild as you can
Learn to break all of the rules
Keep an eye on the man
Or you'll start keeping score
I guess I'm not in college anymore

So kids who don't go to school
Be as wild as you can
Learn to break all of the rules
Keep an eye on the man
Or you'll start keeping score
I guess I'm not in college anymore
