The Lyrics

Hey, hey, hey, hey

"Don't you get out of your seat"
That's what you said, they had detention, baby

Die Hard with Bruno's McClane
You shot the sherrif but not the deputy
Sat down for breakfast and milk
I hadn't heard the news, now I will sing the blues

Tore Barry's wardrobe apart?
That's Judd Nelson's smart-ass remark, baby

Don't you... forget about Paul
Don't, Don't, Don't, Don't
Don't you... forget about Paul

Did you eat your breakfast?
Drink your milk, Mr. Principal
Richard Vernon, Richard Vernon
Bye, bye, bye

Will you work this Christmas?
John McClane or Santa Claus?
Bruce keeps shooting, Bruce keeps shooting
Dudes, dudes, dudes, dudes

Hey, hey, hey, hey

Kids won't let you suspend
It's far better to do de-ten-tion
Yeah, the... punk kids know they'll get suspended
Ally Sheedy, wasn't she cute?

Don't you forget about Paul
That Saturday, it was detention, baby
Nothing will tear you apart
We all know the final scene by heart, baby

Don't you... forget about Paul
No, No, Don't, Don't
Don't you... forget about Paul

Mr. Breakfast Club
Do you know his name?
Richard Vernon, bye
Do you know his name?
Now he's passed away

Oh, now he's passed away
Richard Vernon, bye
Eighties - not the same
Do you know his name?

I say :
R I P...

(Repeat indefinitely in various rhythmic patterns)
(Ad libs/Fade out)
Paul Gleason Richard Vernon 1944-2006
