my lyricsbox
Someone, please save us, us college kids.
What my parents told me, is what I did
They said, go to school and, be a college kid
But, in the end, I questioned why I did

I'm poor, I'm starving, I'm flat broke, I've got no cash to spend
Sell all my books to front row tickets to Dave Matthews Band
My girlfriend's at another school, I know this year will test her
I called, found out she had 3 other boyfriends last semester

And that's why I say, "Oh, no"
Not for me, not for me
Call it torture, call it u-ni-ver-sity
Nooo!!
Arts and Crafts is all I need
I'll take calligraphy and then I'll make a fake degree

80 grand later, I found out that all that I had learned
Is that you should show up to take your finals and your mid-terms
The party scene is kinda mean, I think it's sick and twisted
The navy showed up at my door, they claimed that I enlisted

And that's why I say, "Oh, no"
Not for me, not for me
Call it torture, call it u-ni-ver-sity
Nooo!!
Arts and Crafts is all I need
I'll take calligraphy and then I'll make a fake degree

Don't get excited, she'll say no without a doubt you see
And I've decided college girls just won't go out with me
They make me nervous and they always catch me off my guard
Like cell phone service, I drop out cuz' college is too hard

It's time to call my father
Cuz' its his alma mater
Good grades aren't what they seem
I think he knows the Dean

It's time to call my father
Cuz' its his alma mater
He says he's proud of me
But college always was his dream
And I would always say "It's not for me"

"Oh, no"
Not for me, not for me
Call it torture, call it u-ni-ver-sity
Nooo!!
Arts and Crafts is all I need
I'll take calligraphy and then I'll make a fake degree

Someone, please save us, us college kids
What my parents told me, is what I did
They said, go to school and, be a college kid
But, in the end, I questioned why I did

Do what will make you happy
Do what you feel is right
Only but one thing matters
Learn how to live your life

Do what will make God happy
Do what you feel is right
Only but one thing matters
Learn how to live your life
This song is from the album "Two Left's Don't Make A Right...But Three Do".
