Mother, Don't want to go to school today
I think I'd rather go outside and play

They keep calling asking me
If I'll come in
Is that a sin
If being lazy is the only reason

It's getting late
So, mother don't you hesitate
To pack my lunch
And I'll be on my way to school

Mother, don't want to go to school today
I think I'd rather go outside and play

The teacher's always looking down
With her disappointed frown
Asking me to go sleep somewhere else

My levelheaded mother
Always said to one another
That the truth will always hurt
If you keep waiting
I said waiting

    General CommentYeah it's pretty clear, a kid deciding he'll play truant today because the same shit always happens at school.

    This is my favourite song of all time, by my favourite band ever. The guitar rules all the way through, but what I love the most is the key change at the end Gary Cherone rings out "MUTHAAAAA" whilst the band sing the chorus words as normal...and the nanana's during the fade, which people normally hate but they really work at the end.

    General CommentThe first time I heard this song i thought i heard this
