13) The School Blues

performed by Niklas Lund  Thomas & Weidinger, Henning SchŁtt (Lyrics by W.E.P.)

Iím telling you man, Iíve got the school blues,

Iíve got it so bad, man, Iím shakiní in my shoes.

Tests, homework, lessons even in the afternoon,

I canít take it no (sic) more, Iíll go mad soon.

Headmaster, caretaker, teachers,

What a bunch of crazy creatures!

 

If you are just a minute late,

Good old whatís-his-name is sure to meet you at the gate.

It ainít nobodyís business when you miss a lesson or two,

But Vehman* over the intercom announces he wants to talk to you.      *Ohmís deputy head

If you are under age and wanna smoke,

Youíve got to sneak into the toilets where you choke.

 

The teachers and their ĒwunnerfulĒ subjects are hard to face,

I think Iíll drop out of this stupid rat race.

All this bullshit is getting me down,

I think Iím gonna leave town.

Now you may find me at Bretterbude and other joints,

Like E-Werk or the Supol gas station,

Favourite hang-outs of the younger generation.

 

                         Iíve got nothing to lose,

                                      Whatís there to choose?

                                      It drives you to booze,

                                      Iíve got the school blues.
