I stayed out late last night
Why am I such a fool?
My alarm did not go off
Now I’m late for school
I sneak slowly into class with professional agility,
“Yer not saved by the bell,” yells Mr. Peabody

Some people think that I should do my best,
Why should I when I just flunked my last test
Just Say No
To Popular Demand
Cuz everyone you know is workin’ for the man
Just Say No
To Popular Demand
Walk when they say run, and sit when they say stand

The faculty is all against me
The Government is too
Ferris Bueler you’re my hero
You’d know what to do
Live each day as if it was your last, that was always my philosphy
No! Try harder than the rest, that’s what they yell at me

    General CommentThis song is about not doing what others expect of you: you should become your own person.
    Who is Ferris Bueler anyway?
