Originally from the Album: Buffet Hotel (2009)

You messed up, you read the paper
You accidentally watched the news
You inadvertently find yourself
In the vicinity of the blues

Bust your ass to get the good life
You make a habit out of overtime
When the big report card comes
Your priorities are way out of line

You need to go to summer school
Get to the beach or at least in the pool
Time to go to summer school
Remember what is and what is not cool

Time out for (time out) bad behavior
Time off, you’ve been under the gun
High time somebody told you
It’s time to let those puppies run

What’s up with this recession?
I refuse to participate
The answer to your burning question
Is dancing on your tailgate

It’s time to go to summer school
Remember what is and is not cool
Oh, summer school
There is a time and a place to act like a fool
At summer school
Get your ass to a beach or at least to a pool
At summer school
Know when to keep and to break all the rules

Beer 101.
Sex 102.
Tune it in, turn it out
That’s what I’m talking about

It’s time to go to summer school
The courses are easy and there are no rules
At summer school
Remember what is and is not cool
You need to stay in summer school
This is the time and a place to act like a fool
Oh, summer school
Just know when to keep or break all the rules.
