Kanye West – School Spirit (Skit 1) Lyrics
Skit 1: [DeRay Davis]
Now beat that!
And your mothers saying
"Go to college"
So you finish college
And it's wonderful
You feel so good
And after all the partying and craziness
And don't forget about that drug habit you picked up at school
From being around your peers
Now you'll get that 25-thousand dollar job a year
And you'll spend all your money on crack cocaine
But, it'll be YOUR money
No more borrowing from mom for my high
So now you get your degree tattooed on your back
`Cause you're so excited about it
If you continue to work at the Gap
After several interviews
Oh my God
You'll come in at a entry-level position
And if you do that
If you kiss enough ass
You'll move up to the next level
Which is being the secretary's secretary
And boy is that great
You can take messages for the secretary
Who NEVER went to college
She's actually the bosses niece!
So now you're part of the family
You know what college does for you?
It makes you really smart, man
You kids wanted to talk in the back of the class?
Not me, I listened
I was a Hall-Monitor
This was meant to be
You know how many classes I took?
No, I've never had sex
But, you know what?
My degree keeps me satisfied
When a lady wakes to me says
"You know what's sexy"
No, I don't know what it is
But I bet I can add up all the change in your purse
