"What I Go To School For" as written by Stephen Paul Robson, John Ignatius Mclaughlin, James Bourne, Matthew Jay and Charles Robert Simpson....
Her voice is echoed in my mind
I count the days till she is mine
Can't tell my friends 'cause they will laugh
I love a girl from senior class

I daydream my way through freshman math
While she fills out her college apps
I'll show her a world where we belong
But she'll have to drive us to the prom

That's what I go to school for
Even though it is a real bore
You can call me crazy
She is so amazing
That's what I go to school for
Even though it is a real bore
Girlfriends I've had plenty
But she's the one that I need
That's what I go to school for
That's what I go to school for

Her boyfriend's just turning nineteen
But that doesn't bother me
He's back at college out of town
I find a reason to go 'round

I climb a tree outside her home
To make sure she is alone
She looks up and sees me there
Still I cant help but stop and stare

That's what I go to school for
Even though it is a real bore
You can call me crazy
She is so amazing
That's what I go to school for
Even though it is a real bore
Girlfriends I've had plenty
But she's the one that I need
That's what I go to school for
That's what I go to school for

Everyone that you see all day
Knows you're looking at me in a different way
I guess that's why my marks are getting so high

I can see those tell tale signs telling me
That I was on your mind
I could see that you want it more
When you told me that
I'm what you go to school for
I'm what you go to school for

She's made her choice and I'm the one
At least 'til graduation comes
We drive past school to wave goodbye
My friends they can't believe their eyes

That's what I go to school for
Even though it is a real bore
You can call me crazy
I know that she loves me
That's what I go to school for
Even though it is a real bore
Girlfriends I've had plenty
But she's the one that I need
That's what I go to school for
That's what I go to school for

    General CommentThis is a remake of Busted's "What I Go To School For"

    Exceppptttt...

    Busted sings about loving a member of the staff (a teacher) and Jonas Brothers' is about a freshman in love with a senior girl.

    In my opinion, the Jonas Brothers version of this song AND Year 3000 are waay better than Busted's. But of course, that's just me. :]
