Lyrics - School Days

(Chuck Berry)

Taken from the album T.N.T.

Recorded at Albert Studios, Sydney, NSW, Australia


Released in 1975

Produced by Harry Vanda & George Young

Up in the morning and out to school
The teacher is teaching the golden rule
American History practical maths
You studying hard and you're hoping to pass
Ooh you're working your finger right down to the bone
And the guy behind you won't leave you alone
Ring ring goes the bell
The cook in the kitchen is ready to sell
But you're lucky if you can find you a seat
You're fortunate if you got time to eat
Well back in the classroom open your books
Ooh the teacher don't know how mean she looks

Hail hail rock 'n' roll
Hail hail rock 'n' roll
Hail hail rock 'n' roll
Hail hail rock 'n' roll
Hail hail rock 'n' roll
Hail hail rock 'n' roll

As soon as 3 O'clock goes around
You finally lay your burden down
Throw down your books and outta your seat
You go down the hallway and into the street
And you're trying to forget just where you been
You find a juke joint you go in
You drop the coin right into the slot
You gotta hear something that's really hot (ah like me)
With the one you love you're making romance
All day long they wanted to dance
And you're feeling the music from head to toe
As round and round and round we go
Get over here

Long live rock 'n' roll
Long live rock 'n' roll
Long live rock 'n' roll
Long live rock 'n' roll
Long live rock 'n' roll
Long live rock 'n' roll, eh

Rock rock rock 'n' roll
[repeat]
