The Lyrics

She as well known as the full-blown class clown
Had a poor grade average, it kept a going down.
And she grew up wrong and she grew up slow.
And Wednesday night detention's where she's gonna go.

Well, She flunked high school at the age of eighteen,
The teacher's were all shocked, they were all going green.
I was introduced, here grade's were just a falling.
I said "Your hopeless, girl", she was just a crawling along
Crawling along.

Last chance for Mary Jane, one last
chance to save her grades.
I feel demotion creeping in, and I
know she won't have it made.

Well, I don't know, but she's a dropout
Yeah, she's gonna live on the street,
yeah, wihtout a doubt. I'm tired of messing
up, tired of just a helping her along.
She says the US capital is in Maine,
no, no, that's just wrong.

Oh, why, why? Oh, hell no.
Is a vocae school where you wanna go?
Study for your final, get ready for your exam
Take it as it comes, dontcha try and cram.

Last chance for Mary Jane, one last
chance to save her grades.
I feel demotion creeping in, and I
know she won't have it made.

There's teachers down in the
conference room, talking bout her
grades, while they smoke a shroom.
Looking down in her permenat file,
she's gonna be held back a real long while.

Oh, why, why? Oh, hell no.
Is a vocae school where you wanna go?
Study for your final, get ready for your exam
Take it as it comes, dontcha try and cram.

Last chance for Mary Jane, one last
chance to save her grades.
I feel demotion creeping in, and I
know she won't have it made.
