School Daze - J. Cole

Yeah
Take ya'll back... to them school days, yeah.
Fayettenam, what up, man?
We came a long way from sticking move
N_ggas skipping school, just to scrap over bullsh_t
N_gga if you lose, it's a wrap, them hoes clowning
It goes down in the lunch room
I'm tryna spit this game n_gga, f_ck food,
Bust moves to the hallway
My n_ggas posted on the wall, always
Ain't thinking about class, dog, my ass tryna parle
If we had this sh_t our way
We be standing here all day
But look the principal's coming, give pounds then we all escape.
All late to class with fake passes,
Living life in the fast lane, but ain't passing.
They dreaming, tryna be the next Jay-Z and Damon Dashes
I ain't even open my book and it's time to change classes.
Walk straight past my ex and don't speak,
It's all good, probably have a new ex by next week.
I just think, the sh_t we did was silly, yo, I know that,
But what I wouldn't give to go back.

[Chorus]

Yea, Back in the days when I was young I'm not a kid anymore
But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again.
Yea, I sit and wish I was a kid again,
Yea I sit and wish.
Yo, I walk another n_gga girl to her class, with my hand on her ass,
If he say 'what up' later, I just laugh.
Real sneaky yo, gotta keep it low,
Up in math, let my n_gga read this real freaky note Kiki wrote, yea
Hooping up in P.E. you can't see me on this gym flow,
But damn Vanessa booty looking sick up in them gym shorts.
Uh, we bag 'em up, ya'll n_ggas gonna have to wait,
So they passing hate like, 'Damn I can't wait 'til they graduate.'
But some of my n_ggas will probably never make it,
The S.A.T. sh_t man I doubt they ever take it, cause
Instead of tryna send a n_gga to a tutor,
Them guidance counselors tryna introduce us to recruiters, it's a set-up.

Momma cut the light on, "Time to get up, "
Make sure the shirt matching the forces then I head out,
At the time I thought this sh_t was so whack,
But what I wouldn't give to go back.
Yea, hey,

[Chorus]

Back in the days when I was young I'm not a kid anymore
But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again.
Yea, I sit and wish I was a kid again,
Yea I sit and wish.
I'm a little grown, but still reminisce,
Close your eyes n_gga, you remember this?
Friday night football game, something I'll forever miss.
After parties in the gym, grinding underneath the rim,
You forgot your school I.d.? F_ck, n_gga, you ain't getting in.
In the hallways acting like some hoodlums,
See that scrap? Naw, damn I always miss the good ones.
Them rumors spreading fast with that he say she say,
Twenty people on the phone cause everybody did three-way.
Man we played them girls for the fools, but,
Wasn't no ladies like them ladies from other schools,
Cause seeing them same old chicks got tired quick
She was just f_cking my boy, now she all on my d_ck, gossip, damn.
Another chick pregnant, another n_gga gone,
I reminisce on all the chicks a n_gga never bone,
Pardon me ya'll I'm just flipping through some Kodaks,
Sitting, wishing I could go back.

[Chorus]

Yea, Back in the days when I was young I'm not a kid anymor
But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again.
Yea, I sit and wish I was a kid again,
Yea I sit and wish, man.
Yeah, this sh_t is dedicated to all my n_ggas man.
R.J., Mike Shaw, Jim Brown, yea, B. Nasty, Big Joe,
Smitty, What's good? Yea,
Terry Sanford High School, E. Smith,..
Class of 2003, that's me
I know y'all remember this.
