Made my escape just a few days ago
I don't want to tell you how low you can go
Movin' on up get a job quickly
Somthin' hit me I don't know wot it was
I want to go back this (week)
I want to go back this (week)
I want to go back this (minute)
They said I was unruly
Better get a job
I really didn't understand the meaning of the word
I tried to get an understanding with the foreman boss
He simply put me down and said I wasn't
 (To be trusted)
So I want to go back
I want to go back
I want to go back
I want to go back to school
I want to go back to school
You might think I'm a crazy fool
I want to go back to school
Man its safer in there
The world outside is so uncool
I need the money right now, I need the right job
The guys at work just needle me, they just can't get enough
I telephoned my friend, he said "same with me"
So wot are we going to do in this unearthly factory
I don't understand, how I was pushed to the brink
I want to go back
I want to go back
I want to go back
I want to go back to school
I want to go back to school
I want to go back to school
Man it's crazy out here in the 'outer' world
I want to go back to school
So I'm sitting in the dark
In my bed the other night
Thinking about my teacher
Now wasn't she right
They said you'd get a shock
Just like coming out of the womb
The world outside's enormous
There's only so much room
People kick and tear your brain
Life outside's insane
I want to go back "Hear me now!"
I really tried to work so hard
They told me scrub the floor
They kicked me like a toy
Nailed me to the door
I want to go back to school
I want to hear it, hear it
Hear the golden rule
I want to go back to school
