I was never good at school
You couldn't keep me awake
I loved it by the swimming pool
Just floating off into space

I think of what I could have been
Sweating in a nylon shirt
The captain of a loser's team
Saying nothing till I'm fit to burst

And if I could only do it
I would say I knew you were a friend of mine
But I've been on this planet
Long enough to know it's just a waste of time

And the days get longer
They get longer day by day by day by day by day

Sit up, Sit straight, and concentrate
Grow up to be someone you hate
C'mon, get up, get out of bed
Don't use excuses, use your head

I was never good at school
You couldn't keep me awake
I loved it by the swimming pool
Just floating off into space

And if I could have an hour
I would take a shower and forget it all
And if things were any better
I would only worry I'd been here before

And the days get longer
They get longer day by day by day by day by day

Sit up, Sit straight, and concentrate
Grow up to be someone you hate
C'mon, get up, get out of bed
Don't use excuses, use your head

C'mon, get up, get out of bed
Don't use excuses, use your head
Use your head
