School Days - 1976

Up in the mornin' and out to school
The teacher is teachin' the Golden Rule
American history and practical math
You’re studyin' hard and hopin' to pass
Workin' your fingers right down to the bone
And the guy behind you won't leave you alone
. . .
Hail, hail rock and roll
Deliver me from the days of old
Long live rock and roll
The beat of the drum is loud and bold
Rock, rock, rock and roll
The feelin' is there, body and soul.
