Kanye West – School Spirit (Skit 2) Lyrics
You keep it going man
You keep those books rolling
You pick up all those books that you're gonna read
That you're not gonna remember
And you keep it rolling man
You get that associates degree okay?
Then you get your bachelor's degree
Then you get your masters
Then you get your masters, masters
Then you get your doctorate
You go man!
And then when everyone says quit
You show them those degrees man
When everyone says "Hey, you're not working, you're not making any money"
You say "You look at my degrees, and you look at my life."
Yeah, I'm 52!
So what? I'm smart, I'm so smart
And I'm in school
All these guys out here making money
And I'm spending mine to be smart!
You know why buddy?
Cause when I die buddy
You know what's gonna keep me warm?
That's right, those degrees
