At thirteen, you think it’s cool to dress all like your friends
By fifteen, you’re over it and smoking cigarettes
And now the world's at you
No one has a clue
Your friends say you’re cool
So what’s the point of school?

Your mum cries in the night
You’re still out of sight
Your head's such a mess
But you still know best

Now tell me where will you be
No house, no clothes, no money
I wonder what they will say?
Sell your body to pay-ay-ay

Why do it? Don’t do it
Why do it? Don’t do it, fool
Why do it? Don’t do it
Why do it? Don’t do it, fool

Why do it? Don’t do it
Why do it? Don’t do it, fool
Why do it? Don’t do it
Why do it? Don’t do it, fool

You walk around and people look at you
And they’re sad to see a girl who’s so confused
And you wonder why they all step away?
When once again it’s not just today

And now the world's at you
No one has a clue
Your friends say you’re cool
So, what’s the point of school?

Your mum cries in the night
You’re still out of sight
Your head's such a mess
But you still know best

Soon they won’t care any more
So sick of cops at the door
Then you’ll wish you were Daddy’s girl
Oh but you haven’t a clue

Why do it? Don’t do it
Why do it? Don’t do it, fool
Why do it? Don’t do it
Why do it? Don’t do it, fool

Why do it? Don’t do it
Why do it? Don’t do it, fool
Why do it? Don’t do it
Why do it? Don’t do it, fool

Why do it? Don’t do it
Why do it? Don’t do it, fool
Why do it? Don’t do it
Why do it? Don’t do it, fool

Why do it? Don’t do it
Why do it? Don’t do it, fool
Why do it? Don’t do it
Why do it? Don’t do it, fool

Boop a doop a doop
Boop a doop a doop
Boop a doop a doop
Boop a doop a doop
Oooo, do do do do

Ah, be-boop a doop a doop
Boop a doop a doop
Boop a doop a doop
Boop a doop a doop
Oooo
