Graduated high school, never touched a book
Being the star athlete, was all it took
Packed and left for college, never learned to read
Got a football scholarship, that's all you'll ever need
No more trophies, cheerleaders too
All washed up at 22
No more stardom, no more fame
Mother's disappointed and your dad is so ashamed
Living back at home and your job is pumping gas!
Stupid jocks they smell like sweat!
Your picture in the paper, head begins to swell
Too much of that high life, your body goes to hell
Picked up by the Cowboys, get cut the first year
Sent down to a farm team, say goodbye to your career
