I went to school in Olympia and everyone's the same
And so are you in Olympia and everyone's the same
We look the same, we talk the same
Baby, baby, baby, baby
Won't you please make me real oh no
Make me real oh no
Make me real oh no
Hurt me
I went to school with Calvin
Hey, hey, hey, hey
And what do you do with a revolution
I went to school in Olympia
Baby, baby, baby, baby
And everyone's the same
And so are you in Olympia
Won't you please make me real, make me sick
Make me real, make it stick
Make me real
Do it for the kids some more
Fascist sexists
I went to school in Olympia
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    General CommentListen to the Nirvana song "School."

    It's the same concept. That song comments on how the lifestyle of Olympia was like high school.

    Courtney, in this song, is making fun of how happy, healthy, soft, squishy and drug-free Olympia was, especially here:
    "I went to school with Calvin"
    that's a shot at K Records. Calvin hated her and she made fun of him all the time anyway.

    "And what do you do with a revolution"
    Bikini Kill reference, anyone?
