I don't give a fuck
About numbers and statistics
I'd rather stay at home
And listen to the Misfits
I'm failing all my tests
My grades are takin' a nose dive
But I decided I don't need you to survive
'Cause I'm a, 'cause I'm a
Business school dropout
'Cause I'm a, 'cause I'm a
Business school dropout
Business school, business school dropout
I ain't got no dad
With a big rich company
That i'll inherit when I finish university
Won't have a heart attack
When stocks go down
Wear a suite and tie
And be another wall street clown
You're stressed at twenty five
and it's no fun to be alive
But what the fuck! You made 'em proud
