Lyrics:

Skools burning, it’s burning down

Burning down, burning down

Skools burning, it’s burning down

Burning down, burning down

 

Stand up, sit down

Don’t turn around

Don’t talk and don’t smoke

Don’t laugh, no joke

 

Too many rules, too many fools

Gonna raise it to the ground

We’re gonna get high

Light up the sky

Gonna burn it down

 

Yes sir, no sir, 3 bags full

Speak up or shut up

Backs to the wall

 

Stand in line, take it outside

See the soldiers march in time

Rollin’ out of bed, fallin’ on my head

I think I’ll pull the pin

 

Skools burning, it’s burning down

Burning down, burning down

Skools burning, it’s burning down

Burning down, burning down

Skools burning, it’s burning down

Burning down, burning down

Skools burning, it’s burning down

Burning down, burning down

 

Shape up, or ship out

Your hair’s too long

Yes sir, no sir, the same old song

 

Stay after time and learn all your lines

Or write ’em out a thousand times

I heard what you said, bells in my head

I think I’ll pull the pin

 

Skools burning, it’s burning down

Burning down, burning down

Skools burning, it’s burning down

Burning down, burning down

Skools burning, it’s burning down

Burning down, burning down

Skools burning, it’s burning down

Burning down, burning down

 

There’s gonna be a party tonight

People gonna come from miles

There’s gonna be a fire here tonight

Gonna dance with the devil till the dawn

Dance with the devil till the dawn

 

Stand up, sit down

Don’t turn around

Don’t talk, don’t smoke

Don’t laugh, no joke

 

Too many rules, too many fools

Gonna raise it to the ground

Gonna get high, light up the sky

Gonna pull the pin

 

Skools burning, it’s burning down

Burning down, burning down

Skools burning, it’s burning down

Burning down, burning down

Skools burning, it’s burning down

Burning down, burning down

Skools burning, it’s burning down

Burning down, burning down

Skools burning, it’s burning down

Burning down, burning down

Skools burning, it’s burning down

Burning down, burning down
