Boarding School is an unreleased song that leaked in September 2012. It is registered on BMI and ISWC. Written and Produced By: Elizabeth Grant and Chris Seefried....
Everyone from home says that you’re so cool
Come on everybody to the boarding school
Everyone from town says that you’re so cool
Come on get down to the boarding school

L-Let’s do drugs
Make love with our teachers
Come on, baby, tell me,
What is tattooed as featured.

I’m a fan of Pro Ana nation
I do them drugs to stop the f-food cravings
If you wanna get high with me, I’m in the back
Doing crack, drinking P-P-Pepsi

Everyone from home says that you’re so cool
Come on everybody to the boarding school
Everyone from town says that you’re so cool
Come on get down to the boarding school

Cheap trailer trash and everyone knows it
But she got a great ass and she knows how to show it
With american flags on each little finger
You’re crashing on Wall Street while I’m blowing up as a singer

If you wanna get that scholarship
Love's not a problem, let’s solve it
Educated in the language of doing-it
Get down like your tutor taught you to and do it

Everyone from home says that you’re so cool
Come on everybody to the boarding school
Everyone from town says that you’re so cool
Come on get down to the boarding school

If you wanna get that sugar cane
If you wanna be that pin up queen, you can you can
If you wanna do that South Beach swing
Or go on group vacationing, you can you can

When they said prolific, they weren't kidding
You thought that I was just a calendar kitten
But now you heard me purring, tiger you’re smitten
So let’s begin to major in the art of sinning

Everyone from home says that you’re so cool
Come on everybody to the boarding school
Everyone from town says that you’re so cool
Come on get down to the boarding school

    Song MeaningI think it's pretty obvious that its about how she's trying to rebel against the strictness of her boarding school by purposely doing things that are against the rules.

    General CommentI know this song is about how Lana went to boarding school, but does it remind anyone else of Serena from Gossip Girl? LOL

    Song FactFrom the rolling stones interview: rollingstone.com/music/features/…

    In an early song called "Boarding School," she mentions being part of a "pro-ana nation" referring to anorexia, and sings, "Had to do drugs to stop the food cravings." But she insists that's fiction. "The mentality of the pro-ana community was just something that was interesting to me."

    A young English instructor introduced her to Allen Ginsberg, Walt Whitman and Vladimir Nabokov (she has tattoos of the latter two names on her forearm), plus Tupac, the Notorious B.I.G. and old movies like The Big Sleep. Lines in "Boarding School" and another unreleased track, "Prom Song," led fans to question the precise nature of this relationship, but Del Rey says it was nothing inappropriate. "He was just my friend."

    Song ComparisonFrom a live version(she loves changing the lyrics live):
    If you wanna get that scholarship
    Yale's not a problem, let’s solve it
    Educated in the language of doing-it
    Get down like your tutor taught you to and do it
