CHORUS

I forgot what they taught back in high school Must have been something important I use Did they ensure the tools for our survival It's a big bad world outside the classroom I forgot what they taught back in high school Must have been something important I use Did they ensure the tools for our survival It’s a big bad world outside the classroom But Still, the kids say We got the spirit Yes we do We got the spirit How about you We got the spirit Yes we do We got the spirit How about you We got the spirit Yes we do Do, Cool
I forgot what they taught back in high school
Must have been something important I use
Did they ensure the tools for our survival
It's a big bad world outside the classroom
I forgot what they taught back in high school
Must have been something important I use
Did they ensure the tools for our survival
It’s a big bad world outside the classroom
But
Still, the kids say
We got the spirit
Yes we do
We got the spirit
How about you
We got the spirit
Yes we do
We got the spirit
How about you
We got the spirit
Yes we do
Do, Cool

I am the truth, the sound track for the youth Please turn the volume up on the sound, tu! The high school gang in all the high school games Systems that bang like all the red and blue shoe strings Divorces that forced the kids through pain Like foster kids, moms always away I thought back the sport my life tortured me Now walk it off, that's what my coach taught me We never talked about the lives we lead Unless we trying work it off like PE, fuck I feel the pressure now, rent ain't free I guess we were ill-equipped for the day we leave I should’ve paid attention to detail Instead of paying my attention to retail Now take a trip with me Fasten the seat belt, class of 06 in the building people
I am the truth, the sound track for the youth
Please turn the volume up on the sound, tu!
The high school gang in all the high school games
Systems that bang like all the red and blue shoe strings
Divorces that forced the kids through pain
Like foster kids, moms always away
I thought back the sport my life tortured me
Now walk it off, that's what my coach taught me
We never talked about the lives we lead
Unless we trying work it off like PE, fuck
I feel the pressure now, rent ain't free
I guess we were ill-equipped for the day we leave
I should’ve paid attention to detail
Instead of paying my attention to retail
Now take a trip with me
Fasten the seat belt, class of 06 in the building people
 
 

CHORUS

I forgot what they taught back in high school Must have been something important I use Did they ensure the tools for our survival It's a big bad world outside the classroom I forgot what they taught back in high school Must have been something important I use Did they ensure the tools for our survival It's a big bad world outside the classroom But Still, the kids say We got the spirit Yes we do We got the spirit How about you We got the spirit Yes we do We got the spirit How about you We got the spirit Yes we do Do, Cool
I forgot what they taught back in high school
Must have been something important I use
Did they ensure the tools for our survival
It's a big bad world outside the classroom
I forgot what they taught back in high school
Must have been something important I use
Did they ensure the tools for our survival
It's a big bad world outside the classroom
But
Still, the kids say
We got the spirit
Yes we do
We got the spirit
How about you
We got the spirit
Yes we do
We got the spirit
How about you
We got the spirit
Yes we do
Do, Cool

Woke this morning a high school mood The way I felt when I had assignments due So I just tuned to ipod And zoomed to a safe place where no one can find me, dude Confine me to sin theta, square metres, hand me the Text book, I never needed Damn teacher, this crap just don't feed us Out there you gotta eat or get eat up Start my own label, get my own paper And I even got one scroll on my blazer So much for private education I tend out pretty much the same that they did Now we the same kids; the rejects And the prefects is all smoking the same shit So when they treat you like you ain't shit Tell em you learned something and paraphrase this Bitch!
Woke this morning a high school mood
The way I felt when I had assignments due
So I just tuned to ipod
And zoomed to a safe place where no one can find me, dude
Confine me to sin theta, square metres, hand me the
Text book, I never needed
Damn teacher, this crap just don't feed us
Out there you gotta eat or get eat up
Start my own label, get my own paper
And I even got one scroll on my blazer
So much for private education
I tend out pretty much the same that they did
Now we the same kids; the rejects
And the prefects is all smoking the same shit
So when they treat you like you ain't shit
Tell em you learned something and paraphrase this
Bitch!

I forgot what they taught back in high school

Did they ensure the tools for our survival
It's a big bad world outside the classroom
I forgot what they taught back in high school

Did they ensure the tools for our survival

Yes we do
We got the spirit
How about you
We got the spirit

We got the spirit

Yes we do

Yo My high school knowledge As far as the charm goes I was far too polished Listening to parlotones Went out with them artist She was a pot of gold Till she later reported her report card Claiming all-stars had stolen her heart Little stick of dynamite chuck TNT She was a fan of Hip Hop and RnB She was the type to pit stop unconsciously So I'd start, stopping and leave her Never into drugs but sparking that reefer I play cool like my exterior in high school I break rules like I’m lyrically Eifel Tower I’ll devour you lames though Repping your folk's cars like range rove’s You not cool You not laying close to the world No golden arrow, not trained coach Too afraid to reach so you aim low Too afraid to come out so you change clothes I've seen the storm but its Post 94 Sun is up so come up and see the rainbow I thought cool was you Until I grew up and realized that you a spoof You just another legalized young dude with proof I don't need your rules If you spit my spew Means you speak like I do I know that I'm not now, but I was High School Cool
Yo
My high school knowledge
As far as the charm goes
I was far too polished
Listening to parlotones
Went out with them artist
She was a pot of gold
Till she later reported her report card
Claiming all-stars had stolen her heart
Little stick of dynamite chuck TNT
She was a fan of Hip Hop and RnB
She was the type to pit stop unconsciously
So I'd start, stopping and leave her
Never into drugs but sparking that reefer
I play cool like my exterior in high school
I break rules like I’m lyrically Eifel
Tower I’ll devour you lames though
Repping your folk's cars like range rove’s
You not cool
You not laying close to the world
No golden arrow, not trained coach
Too afraid to reach so you aim low
Too afraid to come out so you change clothes
I've seen the storm but its Post 94
Sun is up so come up and see the rainbow
I thought cool was you
Until I grew up and realized that you a spoof
You just another legalized young dude with proof
I don't need your rules
If you spit my spew
Means you speak like I do
I know that I'm not now, but I was
High School Cool
