Hey! Student Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

When I'm walking down the street, it's always you I seem to meet
Long hair down and sneakers on your feet
And write your letters to the Evening News
I clench my fist and I sing this tune

I said, Hey student, hey student, hey student
You're gonna get it through the head
I said, Hey student, hey student, hey student
You're gonna get it through the head, I said

When I'm walking to work, it's always you I seem to meet
Henna in your hair, standing in the heat
As you serve us in, motor bows, a book kid
I clench my hand before I flip my lid

I said, Hey student, hey student, hey student
You're gonna get it through the head
I said, Hey student, hey student, hey student
You're gonna get it through the head, I said

When I'm walking down the street, it's always you I seem to meet
Got long hair down and sneakers on your feet
As you listen to Pearl Jam in your room
I'm thinking like that when I sing this song

I said, Hey student, hey student, hey student
You're gonna get it through the head
I said, Hey student, hey student, hey student
You're gonna get it through the head, I said

I woka-to-ma, woka-to-ma, woka-to-ma
Wah, wah, wah
I said, I woka-to-ma, woka-to-ma, woka-to-ma
Wah, wah

When I'm walking down the street, it's always you I seem to meet
Long hair down and sneakers on your feet.
As you stare in your room at Shaun Ryder's face
Down long, long, long, long days

I said, Hey student, hey student, hey student
You're gonna get it through the head
I said, Hey student, hey student, hey student
You're gonna get it through the head, I said

I woka-to-ma, woka-to-ma, woka-to-ma
Wah, wah, wah
I said, I woka-to-ma, woka-to-ma, woka-to-ma
Wah, wah, wah

The dead brains of class AD
Born to live in Leigh-on-Sea
Twin swastikas, court, swimming pool
I'm thinking like this when I sing this tune

I said, Hey student, hey student, hey student
You're gonna get it through the head
I said, Hey student, hey student, hey student
You're gonna get it through the head, I said

I woka-to-ma, woka-to-ma, woka-to-ma
Wah, wah, wah
I said, I woka-to-ma, woka-to-ma, woka-to-ma
Wah, wah, wah

I said, Hey student, hey student, hey student
You're gonna get it through the head
I said, Hey student, hey student, hey student
You're gonna get it through the head, I said

I woka-to-ma, woka-to-ma, woka-to-ma
Wah, wah, wah
I said, I woka-to-ma, woka-to-ma, woka-to-ma
Wah, wah, wah
