alma mater lyrics – alice cooper

rain is falling down my cheek
searching for the sea
tomorrow, like the rain
i’ll be back home again

i watch, the bus
as it pulls out of view
someday like that bus
i will be leaving too

but you know
it breaks my heart
to leave you
camelback
my high school

and now, alone
crying in my beer
cause old friends said goodbye
i guess i’ll be leaving too

but you know
it breaks my heart
to leave you
cortez
i’ll miss you

yes i will
yes i will
you know i will
yes i will
yes i will
you know i will

well so long… so long
everybody… everybody
i hope that i would see you again… again
goodbye… goodbye
everybody… everybody
i finally grew up
they finally let me out of school

hey, remember the time – ‘member the time
we took that snake
and put down little betsy’s dress?
now i don’t think miss axelrod
was much impressed
no i don’t think miss axelrod
was much impressed
well i don’t think miss axelrod
was much impressed

oh, goodbye.
everybody.
i hope that i would see you again.
so long.
everybody.
how do you like that
they finally let me out of school
goodbye.
ah, i wanna get out of here
they let me out of school
how ’bout that, uh?
goodbye
hey, goodbye, guys
maybe i’ll see –
maybe i’ll see you around some time, uh?
ey, don’t make a stranger of yourself, uh?
remember the coop, uh?
may – i ho –
i hope you don’t forget me or nothing
goodbye
