"Straight A's" as written by and Marcus Congleton....
Put a hurting on your parents
and left for DeVry
You made 'em cry
You followed your instinct
and late night TV
Technology

New-wave boys in courdoroys
You've got a few
You're casual
The tools of tomorrow
will get you through
and beautiful

Believe me
You don't have to worry
Baby you're savvy
You don't have to study
To get straight A's
You'll get straight A's

As the future at your fingers
gently unfolds
and you behold
career of your lifetime
before your eyes
You qualify

But if you are failing
and you need me
I'll let you cheat
and realize all the answers
were already there
and you knew them all

Believe me
You don't have to worry
Baby you're savvy
You don't have to study
To get straight A's
You'll get straight A's

Believe me
You don't have to worry
Oh, you're savvy (savvy)
You don't have to study
To get straight A's
You'll get straight A's

    General CommentI tried listening to the song and figuring out the lyrics, and this is what I came up with. It might not be completely correct, but it should be pretty close.

    As for the meaning, it seems to me that he's telling someone (a girl?) that everything will work out in the end. The girl seems somewhat worried about the future and the speaker is willing to help her, although he feels confident that she can get by without his help.

    General Commentandres430,

    Excellent job transcribing the lyrics. They seem perfect to me.

    The song seems to suggest that sometimes, the less you try, the better you'll do. Sometimes school can feel like that, and I'm also a bit skeptical about the difficulty of classes at DeVry. Suggesting that the girl is sexy (savvy) enough to attract a few "new-wave boys in courdoroys", he is at the same time praising her hidden genius.
