I know nothing, don't know much
I think my education's gone out to lunch
I can't remember, I cannot think
What is the difference between Iron and Zinc

I can listen, I can speak
But my conversational skills are gobblety-geek
I know Harold in 1066
Got shot in the eye with a long pointy stick

Revolutions and World War Two is it true what they say
That Charles de Gaulle was a hero and Churchill's a Nero
I threw that away

I get up when I like
Wear anything I like
Don't keep up with the cool
I make up my own rules
Don't have to eat my greens
Or keep my bedroom extra tidy
'Cause nobody is around to tell me off
I can lounge about in my house 'cause lounging about is ...good

I know all I need to know
Why talk Swahili if it's where i won't go
Latin is clever and sexy is French
Sprechen sie Deutsche would hardly make sense

Inquisitions and missionaries seem fairly bizarre
Do I follow commandments from Moses or petals off roses
I am the Czar

I get up when I like
Wear anything I like
Don't keep up with the cool
I make up my own rules
Don't have to eat my greens
Or keep my bedroom extra tidy
'Cause nobody is around to tell me off
I can lounge about in my house 'cause lounging about is...good

Revolutions and World War Two is it true what they say
That Charles de Gaulle was a hero and Churchill's a Nero
I threw that away

I get up when I like
Wear anything I like
Don't keep up with the cool
I make up my own rules
Don't have to eat my greens
Or keep my bedroom extra tidy
'Cause nobody is around to tell me off

    General Commentthis song is terrific, bloody amazing. when you hear a song like this, you realise that the schools in the UK at the moment are absolutly crap. you know when your parents say 'what do they teach you at school?' - it makes me think of this song. "I can listen, I can speak
    But my conversational skills are gobblety-geek" - Great lyric, they teach you all kinds of things but is it neccassery? will you actually need the things that they teach you? this great lyric tells us that even though we get taught a variety of things, it's actually being able to talk to somebody thats going to get you anywhere in life. "What is the difference between Iron and Zinc" - I'm doing stuff like this in school now, when will i ever need this in life?ever? "Why talk Swahili if it's where i won't go" - Why do i learn welsh in school? i've never spoke a word of it outside the classroom exept when i'm making fun of the language! "I know Harold in 1066
    Got shot in the eye with a long pointy stick" hehe, this is a great lyric, they go on about this in school for ages, you do a long history thing about it, will you EVER need it in life? The chorus is amazing too, it makes me think about how good it's going to be when i finally move out of my house and leave school. Such a good song, it cheers me up when i get home all tired from a long school day learning about Charles de Gaulle...
