Lyrics

[Spoken:]
“Oh wow, man !”
“Wait a second man. Whaddaya think the teacher’s gonna look like this year ?”
“My butt, man !”
T-T-Teacher stop that screaming, teacher don’t you see ?
Don’t wanna be no uptown fool.
Maybe I should go to hell, but I’m doin’ well, teacher needs to see me after school.

[Chorus:]
I think of all the education that I missed.
But then my homework was never quite like this.
Got it bad, got it bad, got it bad,
I’m hot for teacher.
I got it bad, so bad,
I’m hot for teacher.

[Spoken:]
“Hey, I heard you missed us, we’re back !”
“I brought my pencil”
“Gimme something to write on, man”
I heard about your lessons, but lessons are so cold.
I know about this school.
Little girl from cherry lane, how did you get so bold ?
How did you know that golden rule ?

[Chorus:]

[Guitar solo]

“Oh man, I think the clock is slow”
“I don’t feel tardy”
“Class dismissed”
