[Verse 1]
This is for them 20s somethings :
Time really moves fast, you were just sixteen
This is for them 30s somethings :
That didn't turn out exactly how your mom and dad wanted you to be

This is for them 40s somethings :
Well raise up your glass and laugh like a motherfucker
This is for them 50s somethings :
Hell, you're halfway there, baby take it to the head

[Bridge]
Mom and dad, tryna hide the world

Said the world is just too big for a little girl
Eyes wide open, came to see
I had my first heels by the age of 13
Mom and dad, tryna hide the boys
I swear that just make them want me more

At 14, they asked what I wanna be
I said baby 21, so I get me a drink

[Hook]
I'm not a teacher, babe
But I can teach you something
Not a preacher
But we can pray if you wanna
Ain't a doctor
But I can make you feel better

But I’m great at writing physical love letters
I'm a freak, all day, all night
Hot, tap, sway
Boy out of sight

And I’m crazy, all day, all night
Who needs a degree when you're schoolin' life?
Uh oh, uh oh, whoa ooh oh oh (schoolin’ life)
Uh oh, uh oh, whoa ooh oh oh (schoolin’ life)

[Verse 2]
This is for them pretty somethings:
Living in a fastlane, see you when you crash babe
This is for them sexy somethings:
That body can't always get ya out of everything

This is for them bitter somethings:
Stop living in regret, baby, it's not over yet

And this is for them chipper somethings:
That's high on life, baby, put me on your flight


[Hook]

You know it costs to be the boss
One day you'll run the town
For now make your life what you decide
Baby, party till the fire marshalls shut this sucker down

[Hook]
I'm not a teacher, babe
But I can teach you something
Not a preacher
But we can pray if you wanna
Ain't a doctor
But I can make you feel better

But I’m great at writing physical love letters
I'm a freak, all day, all night
Hot, tap, sway
Boy out of sight

And I’m crazy, all day, all night
Who needs a degree when you're schoolin' life?
Uh oh, uh oh, whoa ooh oh oh (schoolin’ life)
Uh oh, uh oh, whoa ooh oh oh (schoolin’ life)

[Outro]
There's not a real way to live this...for real
Just remember stay....oh yeah, oh yeah
Don't stop running until it's finished
It's up to you, the rest is unwritten
