Back To School Again Lyrics

by Four Tops

Spending my vacation in the summer sun
Gettin' lots of action and a lots of fun
Scorin' like a bandit 'til the bubble burst
Suddenly it got to be September First

Woe is me
All summer long I was happy and free
Save my soul
The board of education took away my parole

I gotta go back, back, back to school again
You won't find me 'til the clock strikes three
I'm gonna be there 'til then
I gotta go back, back, back to school again
Whoa, whoa, I gotta go, back to school again

Geometry and History is just a pain
Biology and Chemistry destroys my brain
Well, don't they know that I deserve a better fate
I'm really much too young to matriculate

Well, mama please
Your child's come down with a fatal disease
Mama said
"Come on you lazy bum now get your butt out of bed"

You gotta go back, back, back to school again
It's bye, bye fun, get your homework done
You better be in by ten
I gotta go back, back, back to school again
Whoa, whoa, I gotta go, back to school again

I got my books together and I dragged my feet
And then I saw this angel boppin' down the street
I said, "Hey, pretty baby, hows about a date?"
She said, "I'm going to school and I can't be late"

Well, I can see
That look in her eyes was sayin' 'Follow me'
And I was caught
I thought of playing hooky but on second thought

I gotta go back, back, back to school again
You won't find me 'til the clock strikes three
I'm gonna be there 'til then
I gotta go back, back, back to school again
Whoa, whoa, I gotta go back to school again
