The Lyrics

Ever felt school is just too much to take?
Don't wanna hear this guy.
He's going on
And on and on.
I don't wanna hear.
Don't wanna hear.
Just wanna ride around
On motorbikes.
Just want these freaks
To leave me alone.
Feels like I think too much.
I've learnt too much.
For a little while
I want to freak out.

I’d rather be dumb.
I don't wanna read this book no more.
Wanna have lunch.
I just wanna go and stuff my face.
I don't wanna think.
I don't wanna know nothing.
I’d rather be dumb.
I’d just rather be
Rather be dumb.

Don't need no place at school.
“Oh yes, you do”
I hear them say.
Well that's what they think.
I think it stinks.
Too much maths
And chemistry
Wanna knock it down.
Wanna blow it up.
This building’s a dump.
Feels like I think too much.
I've learnt too much.
There’s just too much
Fact in my head.

I’d rather be dumb.
I don't wanna practice French no more.
Wanna learn Dutch.
Wanna smoke a joint in Amsterdam.
I don't wanna think.
I don't wanna know nothing.
I’d rather be dumb.
I’d just rather be,
Rather be,
Taken away from education.
Need to escape,
Escape from this school.
It gets on my nerves.
It drives me up the wall.
In another life,
In another life,
I’d rather be dumb.

I don't wanna think.
I don't wanna learn nothing.
I’d rather be dumb.
I‘m not gonna take this crap no more
Wanna go nuts
I just wanna go and slam the door
I don't wanna think
I don't wanna learn nothing
I’d rather be dumb
I’d just rather be
Rather be dumb.
Rather be dumb.

Education
I’d rather be dumb
