The Lyrics

from the rock opera "The Pile of Bricks"
[chanting of the PS 104 Golden Gophers High School Football Pep Squad--"Gophers! Gophers! Gophers!...Gym Teacher: "Hut, 2,3,4,! Hut, 2,3,4..."]

You can't make your face up in a silly disguise
With your smelly armpits and your bloodshot eyes
And as you begin to wonder how long this will last
You'll realize that this is nothing like ten years at the mast
But it seems to last four hours (I don't wanna talk about the showers)
And after the Seniors push you on the floor
You're gonna run!

[sound effects: basketball game, shoes squeaking on wooden floors, cries of anguish, retching, running, whistles, shouts, etc....]

You're gonna run all day, and into the night
Try to keep your half-digested lunch deep inside
Don't think you'll take your girlfriend out tonight
'Cause you'll be taking laps 'til about midnight
'Cause in P.E. Class, we don't break the laws
As written in the School Board's Beat Below The Belt Clause!
You're gonna run!

[Allright men! Hit the showers!...showers sprays]

(ABC) DKTOS, but a good read.

I agree that this is a good read; and, I suspect, it gets better if taken in the context of your rock opera, which I will try to read.

Made me happy I'm not in school anymore. Plus I'm impressed as hell you parodied The Wall.

Thought I'd commented on this already - the vote didn't take, so I guess I've voted. I like this one.
