about

Hip Hop song about approaching Middle School, sung by Geran Benson, age 11.

lyrics

What's up is up but I'm down
I gotta finish my job as the class clown
Got grade school on my mind, yo!
Fifth grade, you know, and it's goin' so slow

I could die of old age in the fifth grade
But I'm young--gold tongue--not high strung.
And I just got it made in the shade
flyin' high goin' by like an air raid

Baseball cards, doin' trades at the arcade
Willin' and Chillin' in my best pair o' shades

<CHORUS>
This ain't your mama's middle school
This ain't your dada's middle school
Seems so cruel - It's the middle of nothin'!
I've got 7 years to go, fool (shows how much you know, fool)

<break>

And then college (college)
Gotta keep a sharp edge
Suck up knowledge, that's the first rule
Four years, maybe 'five in a state school
I got a feeling I'll be wading in a big pool

What's that, you say?
Another 8 for a Masters? Sometimes I hate school.
And if I wanna be a doctor (who you gonna call?)
Get a medical locker and a framed degree on the wall?

Check your eyes, shake your hand-hand
To be a doctor takes forever, so you
better get a walker and plus-size calendar, man
Cause you're gonna get stuck with a 12 year plan!

<CHORUS>

This ain't your mama's middle school
This ain't your dada's middle school
Seems so cruel - It's the middle of nothin'!
I've got 7 years to go, fool (shows how much you know, fool)

<break>
Lookit here on the playground
Me and my friends are doin' donuts on the merry go round
Kid got a skinned knee, aimin' to blame me
Better get a head start--flee! flee! flee!

Runnin' like a dog down the sidewalk block
Hockin' up loogies and playing with chalk
I'm a dried mud jocky in a crusty pair of gym socks
Sweaty like a hog, too dusty for the laundry

<break>

Every day I come alive, drive you mad mad
I revive for breakfast time—wake up mom and dad
Ho ho ho! It's the middle of morning, bro!
<beat> it's 7 AM-- let's go!

<CHORUS>

This ain't your mama's middle school
This ain't your dada's middle school
Middle school's cruel - It's the middle of nothin'!
I got years of pushin' and puffin' and rushin'
