I made $25 playing music at the college
got a $20 parking ticket playing music at the college
I gave ‘em ten grand and they let me go to college
I lived up in a tower in a closet at the college
but I didn’t like college
not to say I didn’t want knowledge
I just didn’t want to buy it from the college.
So tired of the flatland, moved over to the mountain
I made a little money playing music in the mountain
My knee was feeling funny spitting mucus at the mountain
but I don’t climb mountains ‘cause I’m not that strong
and it takes too long.
Simple is is simple does
I’m doing it just because I can.
Doesn’t matter anyway
I’ll be scrounging ‘til the day I die
So why should I even try.
I’d be lying to say that I planned it this way.
Got me thinking now I oughta go back to the college
Get myself a degree when I go back to the college
I’ll give ‘em ten grand and they’ll let me go to college
I’ll live up in a tower in a closet at the college.
I’ll play nice and friendly with the children at the college
Get my piece of paper when I get done at the college
Then I’ll have the knowledge that I bought from the college.
I’ll spit shine my shoes ‘til they look polished
when I go back to the college.
