'What did you learn at school today?'
That's what the teachers used to say
But they don't know, don't understand do they?
Why do they always give advice?
Saying 'just be nice, always think twice'
When it's been a long time since they had a teenage life

'What did you learn at school today?'
That's what the teachers used to say
But they don't know, don't understand do they?
Why do they always give advice?
Saying 'just be nice, always think twice'
When it's been a long time since they had a teenage life

Dwelling on the past from back when I was young
Thinking of my school days and trying to write this song
Classroom schemes and dreams, man they couldn't save me
'Cause my days were numbered when I signed down on AV
Teenage kicks running out, what could we do?
I still show respect to my boys who made it through
And getting told off, Mr T, how my life would be
Then giving him a signal, so everyone could see

Sunshine and shade, those girls I'd serenade
Thinking of those sixth form chicks that misbehave
Hoping that those days would go on and on forever
Every day something new, just friends running together
But suddenly school ends, your teenage life's gone
All your mates are growing up now, they're gone
And now I'm looking back, I'll tell you what I know
Do you listen to your teacher? No, I don't think so

'What did you learn at school today?'
That's what the teachers used to say
But they don't know, don't understand do they?
Why do they always give advice?
Saying 'just be nice, always think twice'
When it's been a long time since they had a teenage life

Now if you give the kids time, together they will shine
Yeah yeah, ooh shine, we all will shine, here me now
And if you treat the kids right, they won't do the crime
No no, won't do the crime

Now my bad old ways were during my school days
Messing with those grade A's, my life was just a haze
I'm going through the struggle, five ten and kicking back
So I could lock the flow, lace it up now on the track
Oh yeah, I felt the pain whilst chasing all the fame
I'm being told I'm nothing, just a player in the game
But now I walk tall, stand proud for you to see
I'm driving these fast cars, it's five stars for me

'What did you learn at school today?'
That's what the teachers used to say
But they don't know, don't understand do they?
Why do they always give advice?
Saying 'just be nice, always think twice'
When it's been a long time since they had a teenage life
When it's been a long time since they had a teenage life
