The Lyrics

You think I'm an ignorant sissy
And you've beat so many of us, I guess it must be so,
But you bet I can see
An IQ of one-point-three
Can make me think there's much that you don't don't know.

You think you own whatever turf you walk on
That school is just a building you can claim
But I know every boy and girl and teacher
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name.
You think the only people who are people
Are the bullies who do just what you do,
But if you really spent time in the classroom
You'd learn things you never knew, you never knew.
Have you ever had the teacher pat you on the back
Instead of paddles whacked upon your rear?
Can you tell me the times tables to a hundred?
Can you be my friend for longer than a year?
Can you be my friend for longer than a year?

Come sit with us at lunchtime at our table
Come get to know us nicely, as your friends
Come challenge us to baseball in the diamond
And for once, it will not matter who wins
The leader of the school board is my mother
The science teacher's daughter is my friend
And we are tired of your fights and dumb threats
You deserve to be smacked right on your rear end!

How fast can intelligence grow?
If you don't shut up, then we'll never know!
And we'll never use the playground 'cause you'll want to fight
And that would be unlucky in the end.
Can you listen to me clearly give this warning:
If you would be nice, then you would have more friends
You can stalk the school and still
I know you'll make threats until
You are nice and then you'll finally have a friend
