school daze lyrics – j. cole

“school daze”

yeah
take ya’ll back… to them school days, yeah.
fayettenam, what up, man?
we came a long way from sticking move
n*gg*s skipping school, just to scr*p over bullsh*t
n*gg* if you lose, it’s a wrap, them hoes clowning
it goes down in the lunch room
i’m tryna spit this game n*gg*, f*ck food,
bust moves to the hallway
my n*gg*s posted on the wall, always
ain’t thinking about cl*ss, dog, my *ss tryna parle
if we had this sh*t our way
we be standing here all day
but look the princ*p*l’s coming, give pounds then we all escape.
all late to cl*ss with fake p*sses,
living life in the fast lane, but ain’t p*ssing.
they dreaming, tryna be the next jay-z and damon dashes
i ain’t even open my book and it’s time to change cl*sses.
walk straight past my ex and don’t speak,
it’s all good, probably have a new ex by next week.
i just think, the sh*t we did was silly, yo, i know that,
but what i wouldn’t give to go back.

[chorus]

yea, back in the days when i was young i’m not a kid anymore
but some days i sit and wish i was a kid again.
yea, i sit and wish i was a kid again,
yea i sit and wish.
yo, i walk another n*gg* girl to her cl*ss, with my hand on her *ss,
if he say ‘what up’ later, i just laugh.
real sneaky yo, gotta keep it low,
up in math, let my n*gg* read this real freaky note kiki wrote, yea
hooping up in p.e. you can’t see me on this gym flow,
but d*mn vanessa booty looking sick up in them gym shorts.
uh, we bag ’em up, ya’ll n*gg*s gonna have to wait,
so they p*ssing hate like, ‘d*mn i can’t wait ’til they graduate.’
but some of my n*gg*s will probably never make it,
the s.a.t. sh*t man i doubt they ever take it, cause
instead of tryna send a n*gg* to a tutor,
them guidance counselors tryna introduce us to recruiters, it’s a set-up.
momma cut the light on, “time to get up, ”
make sure the shirt matching the forces then i head out,
at the time i thought this sh*t was so whack,
but what i wouldn’t give to go back.
yea, hey,

[chorus]

back in the days when i was young i’m not a kid anymore
but some days i sit and wish i was a kid again.
yea, i sit and wish i was a kid again,
yea i sit and wish.
i’m a little grown, but still reminisce,
close your eyes n*gg*, you remember this?
friday night football game, something i’ll forever miss.
after parties in the gym, grinding underneath the rim,
you forgot your school i.d.? f*ck, n*gg*, you ain’t getting in.
in the hallways acting like some hoodlums,
see that scr*p? naw, d*mn i always miss the good ones.
them rumors spreading fast with that he say she say,
twenty people on the phone cause everybody did three-way.
man we played them girls for the fools, but,
wasn’t no ladies like them ladies from other schools,
cause seeing them same old chicks got tired quick
she was just f*cking my boy, now she all on my d*ck, gossip, d*mn.
another chick pregnant, another n*gg* gone,
i reminisce on all the chicks a n*gg* never bone,
pardon me ya’ll i’m just flipping through some kodaks,
sitting, wishing i could go back.

[chorus]

yea, back in the days when i was young i’m not a kid anymore
but some days i sit and wish i was a kid again.
yea, i sit and wish i was a kid again,
yea i sit and wish, man.
yeah, this sh*t is dedicated to all my n*gg*s man.
r.j., mike shaw, jim brown, yea, b. nasty, big joe,
smitty, what’s good? yea,
terry sanford high school, e. smith,..
cl*ss of 2003, that’s me
i know y’all remember this.
