The Lyrics

I know everyone is wondering what old school really is, so I figured I'd put my two cents worth in...
Old school...not found today
Say it looks a bit religious
They make you pray...'cause it's old school

Old school...led by the right
There's no if's, and's or maybe's, got to be polite
If you talk back...they may take your life
Yes please, thank you, never ever gripe

Old school...whackin' the seats
Crying will just bring more paddle pain to your cheeks
They say, "Cry baby...how 'bout another whack?"
You say, "Had enough already", they say, "No, you lost track"

You must bow to all the ladies
Know your right from wrong
Want your dinner? You must sing a song

Old school...study poems
Memorize lore
Yeah, you've got to seem eager
Want to study the books
You'll walk uphill to school sixteen miles

Proper etiquette's your duty
You should always wear a smile
Don't enjoy slumber, help out on the farm
If you work all day, there's muscles on your arm

They say old school took a holiday
They say it treated others cruelly, filled all the kids with hate
Sit in the stockade...for an hour or two
You may see things a bit clearer
Ponder till you have a clue

The headmaster...makin' all the rules
If you mess up, sit on the dunce stool
If you're obstinate...then they may flog you sore
And if flogging fails them
Then they'll have to hurt you more

You may say...seems rather cruel
But they had ways to ensure you'd
Live by the rules...old school

Old school...nothing's on par
I remember clearly, I'm still nursing my scars
Ah yes...old school
