I'm playin' hooky, I'm playin' hooky
I can't walk cool when I got books underneath my arm
I'm playin' hooky, I'm playin' hooky
And I'm afraid I will be failing to be hearing the alarm

I refuse to go to school, think I'll play a little pool
And I will pass on the curriculum today
I apologize to educational supplies
Statistics just keep getting in my way
How will they teach me how to learn I don't want to be no attorney
Or receive a credential just like Raymond

I'm playin' hooky, I'm playin' hooky
I can't walk cool when I got books underneath my arm
Playin' hooky, I'm playin' hooky
And I'm afraid I would be failing to be hearing the alarm

Maximum security is some peculiarity
My educationality has brought me to a conclusion
Institutionality that tries to blow the malady
Can never seem to go to the release
So can you blame me if I'm tempted
And the chug down is pre-empted

Playin' hooky, I'm playin' hooky
I can't walk cool when I got books underneath my arm
I'm playin' hooky, I'm playin' hooky
And I'm afraid I would be failing to be hearing the alarm

Counselors said I'm maladjusted and I never can be trusted
Irreconcilable differences cause problems with the faculty
Conflicting interests in the area
But I should intend to be considering vocationally
I must be dealt with very gently and I might say incidentally
Playin' hooky, I'm playin' hooky
Can't walk cool when I got books underneath my arm
I'm playin' hooky, I'm playin' hooky
And I'm afraid I would be failing to be hearing the alarm

About this [?] called detention, with the captives aforementioned
Assuming the dilemma's to rile the guard
Here's a memo to communicate or maybe you should demonstrate
Instead of just divulging information in regard
Beyond the shadow of a doubt, you can trample yourself out

Playin' hooky, playin' hooky
I can't walk cool when I got books underneath my arm
I'm playin' hooky, I'm playin' hooky
And I'm afraid I would be failing to be hearing the alarm
