"Billy S" as written by Skye Sweetnam and James Robert Robertson....
Wake up tired, Monday mornings suck,
It's way too early to catch a bus,
Why conform without a fuss,
Daddy Daddy, no, I don't want to go to school, woo!

I don't need to read Billy Shakespeare,
Meet Juliet or Malvolio,
Feel for once what it's like to rebel now,
I want to break out, let's go!

Teachers treat us all like clones,
Sit up straight, take off your headphones,
I don't blame them, they get paid,
Money money, woo, lot's of money money, woo!

I don't need to read Billy Shakespeare,
Meet Juliet or Malvolio,
Feel for once what it's like to rebel now,
I want to break out, let's go!

Get out, get out, get out, get out, woo!
Get out, get out, get out, get out!
To skip or not to skip? that is the question.
Get out, get out, get out, get out, woo!
Get out, get out, get out, get out, get out, get out, get out,
Get out, get out, get out, get out, get out, get out, get out!

I don't need to read Billy Shakespeare,
Meet Juliet or Malvolio,
Feel for once what it's like to rebel now,
I want to break out, let's go!

I don't need to read Billy Shakespeare,
Meet Juliet or Malvolio,
Feel for once what it's like to rebel now,
I want to break out, let's go!

Get out, get out, get out, get out, woo!
Get out, get out, get out, get out, woo!
Feel for once what it's like to rebel now,
I want to break out, let's go!

Get out, get out, get out, get out, get out, get out, get out!

    General CommentGuys, I hate to break up your love-fest, but I agree with broadway_gonnabe.

    *LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT FIRST*

    I agree that it is a sad world that we live in where we have people who moan and complain about school when there are kids in Africa who don't get an option about their education.

    But that's exactly the point of this song! It's to show that people DO moan about GETTING THE VALUABLE education. People DO moan and complain about having to getup early in the morning and go to school, especially when they are teenagers who (I hate to say) have a tendancy to take life for granted.

    But, Soapmaker_22, does that mean that everyone who complains about education or who moans about stingy teachers and boring classes is a "spoilt prick" and "an immature Barbie"? Abduction123, does this make eery whiner a "lazy princess"? Because, if it does, I'm certainly all of the above.

    I'll have you all know that I am currenlty fourteen about to turn fifteen, yet I have always been rated above my peers by school curriculum standards. I don't usually voice my opinions so strongly or in such a manner that appears as pig-headed as this surely does, yet I can't stand it when people don't see both sides of the story.

    YES, there are poor starving children in the world who don't have the luxury of an education.

    YES, there are people in this world who don't see the world through the same eyes as everyone else.

    And YES, there are people who moan about school and having to go to it. I'm not a morning person, and the amount of times I have felt the same way as the first two lines ("Wake up tired, Monday mornings suck/It's way too early to catch a bus")

    By the way, Soapstar_22, I know a couple of people who DO scrub dinner trays for a living, and they always tell me that they love their job because they get to listen in to the conversations of the pupils and sometimes be involved with them over the counter. Unlike teachers, who usually kill any conversation by force or presence, dinnerladies and 'tray scrubbers' are always around when you talk casually to your friends in the lunch queue.

    If anyone has any growing up to do, it's all you people who suddenly jump in with your own side and refuse to see anybody else's point of view. You're telling people to realise how lucky we are to have school, and to stop moaning about it. Have you ever moaned about going to the dentist? Or having your bloods taken? What about people who fear needles and don't like doctors or dentists? I know I'm the part of the last group, and I constantly moan about them both! Yet I still know how lucky I am to have free dental and medical care.

    If you want to moan about the unfairness of one world against another, complain about the fact that we can afford to pay David Beckham a quarter of a billion dollars to kick a football around a field when we can't afford to send money to those who need it.

    Maybe you all need to return to school and think about why YOU deserve to be on this earth.

    Who knows? Maybe you don't.

    General CommentYou know what, soapmaker22? Skye Sweetnam is a great inspiration to MANY people like me, who want to make it big. This song's the typical "grr. I don't want to go to school!!!" Show me a person that didn't want to go one day, and I'll show you a pink elephant named Dorothy, kay honey? Yeah, never. Okay, so I think you should mind your own damn business and get a life. Barbie? Yeah, a spontaneous individual who has her own MIND and she's not obssesed with herself. Scrubbing trays, eh? Yeah...nice one. Especially since she's got herself a CD. YOU will be the one scrubbingh school trays while everyone has on the latest Skye Sweetnam album or the lastest Arynn Roberts cd.
    nice one...
    Arynn,
    ----better watch out hon, she's gonna be an music icon one day----

    General CommentPeople!
    CHILL OUT!
    This song is just meant to be fun.
    And all you Skye haters, you have too much time on your hands if you randomly look up lyrics to singers you don't like and post bad crap about it. Come on; you didn't HAVE to come here. And you're calling her whiney when you come on her and complain about her? Don't you think that's a bit ironic?
    Yeah, Skye can be immature. But why spend life so straight laced and live to work? There's no fun in that.
    I do value my education, definetly not to the fullest, but I still do. This is just about not wanting to go to school. I'm sure everyone's had a day where they don't want to go. Don't take this song so seriuosly, sheesh!

    General CommentOh, and YOU never complained about going to school, eh? When your parents woke you up you said; "Okay! After all, there are kids in Africa who'd love to go to school!" That, my sweet, is total Barbie-ism.
    Arynn
    ...watch out... one day you're going to see her name on LIGHTS...

    General CommentUmmm.. Isn't this thread kind of ... Old?

    Well, let me try not to SPAM a lil here, so I'll just give my thought on this song. Yeah, it's true a lot of people are pretty much an.. idiot.. for not wanting to get an education. Why? An education is the only way to be successful, get somewhere. So, to look at Skye's point of view.. Maybe she's just telling the world how teenagers are just taking life for granted. She herself probably ISN'T supporting the fact that people SHOULDN'T go to school.
