And that's why the student body Got a bad reputation (Oh yeah, oh yeah) What they need is adult education You're back to school, it's a bad situation (Oh yeah, oh yeah) But what you want is an adult education Oh yeah The 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 what you wear and talking 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 You 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 Adult, adult, adult, adult education Adult education, oh yeah, oh yeah Oh yeah, oh yeah Adult, adult, adult, adult Adult, adult, adult, adult... The high point of low school Is getting out of there The low point of high school Is what you wear
