Lyrics

(“What did you learn at school today?”)
(That’s what the teachers used to say) Oh yeah
(But they don’t know, don’t understand, do they?)

(Why do they always give advice?) Always
(Saying “Just be nice, always think twice”)
(When it’s been a long time since they had a teenage life) Let’s go

(“What did you learn at school today?”) What did you learn?
(That’s what the teachers used to say) What did you learn?
(But they don’t know, don’t understand, do they?)

(Why do they always give advice?) Always, always
(Saying “Just be nice, always think twice”)
(When it’s been a long time since they had a teenage life)

Dwellin’ on the past, from back when I was young
Thinkin’ of my school days and tryin’ to write this song
Classroom schemes and dreams, man, they couldn’t save me
‘Cause my days were numbered when I signed down on Avy

Teenage kicks running out, what could we do?
I still show respect to my boys who made it through
And getting told off Mr T how my life would be
Then giving him a signal, so everyone could see

Sunshine and shade, those girls I’d serenade
Thinkin’ of those sixth form chicks that misbehave (Whatever)
Hopin’ that those days would go on and on forever
Every day something new, just friends runnin’ together

But suddenly school ends, your teenage life’s gone
All your mates are growin’ up, now they’re movin’ on
And now I’m lookin’ back, I’ll tell you what I know
Do you listen to your teacher? No, I don’t think so

(“What did you learn at school today?”) Yeah, yeah
(That’s what the teachers used to say)
(But they don’t know, don’t understand, do they?)

(Why do they always give advice?)
(Saying “Just be nice, always think twice”)
(When it’s been a long time since they had a teenage life)

Now if you give the kids time, together they will shine
Yeah, yeah (Ooh… shine)
We all will shine, hear me now
And if you treat the kids fine, they won’t do the crime
No, no (Won’t do the crime)

Yeah

Now my bad old ways were durin’ my school days
Messin’ with those grade A’s, my life is just a haze
I’m goin’ through the struggle, five ten and kickin’ back
So I could lock the flow, lace it up now on the track

Oh yeah, I felt the pain whilst chasin’ all the fame
I’m being told I’m nothin’, just a player in the game
But now I walk tall, stand proud for you to see
I’m drivin’ these fast cars, it’s five stars for me

(“What did you learn at school today?”)
Just take your turn, you gotta learn
(That’s what the teachers used to say)
(But they don’t know, don’t understand, do they?)
They don’t know nothin’

(Why do they always give advice?) Always givin’ advice, yeah
(Saying “Just be nice, always think twice”)
(When it’s been a long time since they had a teenage life)

Yeah, yeah
(When it’s been a long time since they had a teenage life)
