Hi, this is the big O, Otis Redding
I was just standing here thinking about you
Thought I'd write a song about you
And dedicate it to you, take a listen

If you didn't go back to school this year, your really not groovy
Maybe you feel that school is a drag it just don't move you
But did you ever think about how square you look standing
In an employment line because school didn't empty you?
You really ought to think about it

Without an education you could only be a tramp
Grow your iron shoes, no haircut, just plain ole country
Don't worry 'bout the fellows oh, they're gonna calling you green
Because you're heading no future condition

You really ought to think about it
And further motto tell them that
Otis Redding saved you very wise
Because you'll be at the top

When they get that and if they make it
When they get that, if they make it
When they get that, if they make it
You really ought to think about it
Think about it, really ought to think about it

Songwriters
REDDING, OTIS
