The Lyrics

Not sorry if I seem uninterested.
Oh, I'm not listenin', oh, I'm indifferent.
Truly I don’t know what’s going on.
But I’m not the only one, so I guess I’ll just zone out.

But really, I would rather be out ballin’ with my friends,
Not in this room with people who are boring, I think I hear someone snoring.
I don't know, don't ask.
I don't need to know this.
So you can go back, please enjoy your lecture.
I'll be here...

Somewhere in the corner texting my friends while I’m chatting
with this boy who's whisperin', and I can hardly hear...
over this teacher I don't listen to.
And I don't care about this school, so tell the teach I don’t want to be here.

Oh, here.
Oh, here.
Oh, I asked myself, why am I even here?
Oh, here.
Oh, here.
And I can't wait 'til we can get up out of here...

Excuse me if I seem a little unimpressed with this, I’m just waiting to be dismissed.
‘Cause honestly I don't get with this.
And I know you mean only the best, and your intentions aren't to bother me,
but honestly I'd rather be somewhere with my people.

We can kick it and just listen to some music and watch tv, like we usually do.
And we'll discuss our boyfriends, how we plan to live when we are older.
So pardon my manners, but I really do not want to be here.

Not there in the lunchroom with the kids who’re all way too loud, i’m freakin out
I don't want to be here.
Right next to the boy who's throwin' up 'cause he can't eat what they call “lunch” no more.
Oh God, why am I here?

Oh, here.
Oh, here.
Oh, I asked myself, why am I even here?
Oh, here.
Oh, here.
And I can't wait 'til we can get up out of here...

Hours later congregatin' near the nerd who knows everything,
some girl's talkin' 'bout a test that she's gonna flunk.
How did it ever come to this?
I wish that I had called in sick.
So holla at me, I'll be playin’ games on my phone.

My brain’s tired, I’m so uninspired.
But I’m required' to be here till the end of the school day.
So tell the teacher when they're finished that I'm finished.
And I'm standing by the doorway with my backpack on, yo, I'll be outta here.

Oh, here.
Oh, here.
Oh, I asked myself, why am I even here?
Oh, here.
Oh, here.
And I can't wait 'til we can get up out of here.
