The Lyrics

My teachers, yes, they hate me
Sent me to the main office
And soon after they'd sent me
My mom would have a fit
But my defense was strong
Tried to talk my way out of it
I was sent to the detention room

I still relive them
Those days in high school
More than eight years in all
Detention Room
Detention Room

My Freshman English class was total boredom
I didn't care to read a book
Had no fear of dangling modifiers
I though my teacher was a snook
How long could I sit real quiet
Without disrupting the class? Ooh
Let's say it wasn't very long
Til I'd be passing some gas

I still picture them
Those days in high school
Such a wate of time
Detention Room ( 3 times)

My biology class was somewhat tol'rable
At least we got to talk of sex
Yeah..and look at some female genitalia
In the glossary-a of-a the text.
How long could I keep my mouth shut
Before I'd say something rude?
Well, let's say it wasn't very long
Who knew "big penis" was crude?

Fond mem'ries of them
Those days in high school
Finally made it out
Detention Room
Now I live at home
Detention Room
Was I in high school?
Detention Room
