When I wake up in the mornin',
And the 'larm gives out a warnin',
I don't think I'll ever make it on time,
By the time I grab my books,
And I give myself a look,
I'm at the corner just in time to see the bus fly by!
It's alright 'cuz I'm saved by the bell.

If the teacher pops a test,
I know I'm in a mess,
And my dog ate all my homework last night,
Ridin' low in my chair,
She won't know that I'm there,
If I can hand it in tomorrow, it'll be all right!
It's alright 'cuz I'm saved by the bell.
It's alright 'cuz I'm saved by the bell.

    General CommentI think this song is a deep meaningful insight into the angst felt by many teenagers, such as Samuel Powers, as they go into high school and face the pressures of society to suceed and do well.
    It references the way that the writer always feels that he just misses every opportunity in life; he's on the corner in time to see the bus fly by, but he plans to try and blag his way through school, procrastinating; 'if i hand it in tomorow it'll be alright' and generally doing his best to get away with doing the minimum amount of work.
    I think that this person succeeds in life, beacuse in the end he's saved by the bell, but is it really the school bell? or is it the bell that tolls to signify death?
    is he actually saying it's alright because he dies?
    maybe when he sees the bus fly by, he is distracted and gets knocked down by a lorry?
    He gets away with not doing the homework because he is infact dead.
