"Grade 9" as written by and Steven/robertson Page....
I found my locker and I found my classes
I lost my lunch and I broke my glasses
That guy is huge! That girl is wailin'
First day of school and I'm already failing

This is me in grade nine, baby, this is me in grade nine (this is me in grade nine)
This is me in grade nine, baby, this is me in grade nine

I've got a blue-and-red Adidas bag and a humongous binder
I'm trying my best not to look like a minor niner
I went out for the football team to prove that I'm a man
Guess I shouldn't tell them that I like Duran Duran

This is me in grade nine, baby, yeah, this is me in grade nine (this is me in grade nine)
This is me in grade nine, baby, this is me in grade nine

Well, half my friends are crazy and the others are depressed
None of them can help me study for my math test
I got into the classroom and my knowledge was gone
I guess I should've studied instead of watching Wrath Of Khan

This is me in grade nine, baby, this is me in grade nine (this is me in grade nine)
This is me in grade nine, baby, this is me in grade nine

They called me chicken legs, they called me four-eyes
They called me fatso, they called me buckwheat
They called me Eddie

This is me in grade nine, baby, yeah, this is me in grade nine (this is me in grade nine)
This is me in grade nine, baby, this is me in grade nine

I've got a red leather tie and pair of rugger pants
I put them on and I went to the high school dance
Dad said I had to be home by eleven
Aw, man, I'm gonna miss Stairway to Heaven

This is me in grade nine, baby, this is me in grade nine (this is me in grade nine)
This is me in grade nine, baby, this is me in grade nine (this is me)

This is me in grade nine, baby, yeah, this is me in grade nine (this is me in grade nine)
This is me in grade nine, baby, this is me in grade nine

    General CommentSounds like they remember high school all too well. It's all so... true. Especially "Well half my friends are crazy and the others are depressed /And none of them can help me study for my math test /Got into the classroom and my knowledge was gone /Guess I should've studied instead of watching Wrath of Khan." I'm sure it's happened to all of us... well, maybe not watching Wrath of Khan, but the rest of it. It's happened to me, anyway.

    General Commenteven though im only in junior high, it really does remind me of my schooling. "Well half my friends are crazy and the others are depressed /And none of them can help me study for my math test" makes so much sense to me.

    General CommentThis song remeinded me of the first weeks of grade nine. A few of the band members actually went to my highschool, so it always reminds me of the ninth graders that come in every year. Its a good song, pretty catchy and i like the lyrics. They're realistic.

    General Commentthe pop culture references are great. totally BNL style.
    also, i heart:
    "(Jim) They called me chicken legs
    (Andy) They called me four-eyes
    (Steve) They called me fatso
    (Tyler) They called me buckwheat
    (Ed) They called me Eddie"
    didn't we all have horrid nicknames?

    General CommentYeah, grade 9 was fine for me... but half of my friends are crazy and half... well, more than half of them... are depressed. And I suck at math. So, yeah, I love BNL. They write about both depressing and fun things at the same time. Is fun.

    General CommentI love how this song totally captures that kind of High-School-sucks-but-I-dont-take-it-too-seroiusly mentality that I know that I personally, have.

    Personally, I really like High School so far.
