This is a song I really like from one of my favorite movies, “School of Rock”.

***

“School of Rock – Zach’s Song”, can be heard in the 2003 movie, starring Jack Black. It is also on the movie soundtrack of the same name. Originally written for the movie by Sammy James, Jr. of the band, Mooney Suzuki and Mike White. It was produced by Richard Linklater, Jack Black, and Scott Rudin.

Verse 1: Jack Black]
Baby we was making straight A’s
But we was stuck in a dumb daze

Don’t take much to memorize your lies
I feel like I’ve been a hypnotized

And then that magic man he come to town
(Woo Wee)
He spun my head round
He said recess is in session
2 and 2 make 5
And now baby oh I’m alive
Oh yeah
I am alive

[Chorus]
And if you wanna be a teachers pet
Well baby you just better forget it

Rock got no reason
Rock got no rhyme

You better get me to school on time
OH YEAH (yeah)

[Verse 2: Tomika (Jack Black)]
Oh you know I was on the Honor Roll
Got good grades
And got no soul

Raise my hand before I could speak my mind
I’ve been biting my tongue too many times

(And then that magic man said to obey)
Uh huh
(Do what magic man do)
(Not what magic man say)
Say what
(Now can I please have the attention of the class)
(Todays assignment) *Ahem*
Kick some ass

And if you wanna be a teachers pet
Well baby you just better forget it
Rock got no reason
Rock got no rhyme
You better get me to school on time

Oh yeah! (yeah)

[Outro: Jack Black]
This is my final exam
Now you all know who I am
I may not be that perfect son
But y’all be rocking when I’m done

(Instrumental solo)
