Straight A's

Welcome to the end

Of your dreams

Your hopes and aspirations

Don’t match up it seems

To what we’ve  planned for you

Future that we’ve made

But you try to run

Screaming out instead

 

That you

Don’t need straight A’s

To be who you want, no

You don’t need straight A’s

To live your life

You don’t need straight A’s

And if you do, well

Darling you’re living it wrong

 

But all of that is lies, oh

Can’t you see?

The mould we’ve forged for you

Is the best way to be

So stop! And reconsider

Where you’re goin’

You know sooner or later

That you must conform

 

But I

Don’t need straight A’s

To be who I want, no

I don’t need straight A’s

To live my life

I don’t need straight A’s

And if you do, well

Darling you’re living it wrong

 

Yes, now I see,

That this wway, you thought, was best for me

But I don’t care, you won’t get me

‘Cause I’ll run, and run, and run, and run, and run, run, run!

 

You don’t need straight A’s

To be who you want, no

You don’t need straight A’s

To live your life

You don’t need straight A’s

And if you do, well

Darling you’re living it wrong

The End
