We all know that you're back in town.
Your old boat keeps running the ground.
Your captain's gone and the sails are broken.

Well, you've got elephant ears.
You're wise beyond your years.
I swear your head gets bigger everytime I see you.

'Cause we were paid to lose.
Chicage public school.
Teacher, I know your game and I'm playing.

You know that I can't say
how I get through the day
but my feet are sore when that bell starts ringing.

In a classroom with no locking doors.
In a classroom with unswept floors.
I'm a man in the corner and I'm waiting to sweep it.

'Cause we were paid to lose.
Chicage public school.
Teacher, I know your game and I'm playing.

'Cause we tried to lose
'cause we won't ever win.
I'm telling you this for the third time.

Take the green line, green line.
Take the red line all the time
My legs are burning, back together.

Take the blue line, blue line
and take the purple line some of the time.
My legs are burning, back together.

'Cause we were paid to lose.
We won't ever win.
I'm telling you this for the last time.
