back to school lyrics – jon & vangelis

made my escape just a few days ago
i don’t wanna tell you how low you can go
movin’ on up get a job quickly
somethin’ hit me, don’t know what it was

i wanna go back this week
i wanna go back this week
i wanna go back this minute

they said i was unruly, better get a job
i really didn’t understand the meaning of the word
i tried to get an understanding with the foreman boss
he simply put me down and said i wasn’t to be trusted

i wanna go back
i wanna go back
i wanna go back

i wanna go back to school
i wanna go back to school
you might think i’m a crazy fool
i wanna go back to school
man it’s safer in there
the world outside is so uncool

(i need the money right now, i need the right job)
the guys at work just needle me, they just can’t get enough
i telephoned my friend, he said, “same with me”
so what are we going to do in this unearthly factory
i don’t understand, how i was pushed to the brink

i wanna go back
i wanna go back
i wanna go back

i wanna go back to school
(yeah, yeah)
i wanna go back to school
(yeah, yeah)
i wanna go back to school
(yeah, yeah)

i wanna go back to school
(yeah, yeah)
man it’s crazy out here
in this outer world
i wanna go back to school, let me go

so i’m sitting in the dark
in my bed the other night
thinking about my teacher
now wasn’t she right

they said you’d get a shock
like coming out of the womb
the world outside’s enormous
[incomprehensible] so much room
people kick and tear your brain
life out side’s insane

i wanna go back, here me now
i really tried to work so hard
they told me scrub the floor
they kicked me like a toy
nailed me to the door

i wanna go back to school
(yeah, yeah)
i’m gonna go back to school
(yeah, yeah)
i wanna hear it, hear it
hear the golden rule
i wanna go back to school

i wanna go back to school
(yeah, yeah)
i wanna go back to school
(yeah, yeah)
i wanna hear the golden rule
(yeah, yeah)

i wanna go back to school
(yeah, yeah)
man, it is crazy, one more time
i wanna go back to school

back to school
