School Daze



Mommy’s out
And Daddy’s drunk
I’m just lyin’ here in my bunk
Imagining

Down at school
They’re all such fools
I’m not playing by their rules
I’m thinkin’

Pickin’ sides for basketball
I’m not on any side at all
I’m just leanin’ ‘gainst the wall
‘n broodin’

All alone’s my favourite call
Shootin’ cans, can hit them all
I’ve a gun in my hand
And I’m eight foot tall

Someday soon I’ll show them how
They don’t know me anyhow
They’ll look up when they’re lyin’ low
They’ll look up and then they’ll know

Rather live in Middle-Earth than Middletown
Magic in my hand I feel it call
They will feel its power as they stand against the wall
Magic handed wizard now I’m nine foot tall

They’re falling down, they’re runnin’ scared
Today I’m Lord of All
I’ve a gun in my mouth, I’m famous now
Look up, I’m ten foot tall.
