VERSE 1

 

Cruising for a time out,

 

With a group of ne'er do wells, do wells,

 

While a future drop out,

 

There's one hour he excels.

 

 

CHORUS

 

When he's in Detention Hall.

 

With his friends, Detention Hall.

 

 

VERSE 2

 

Wasted her lunch hour,

 

Showing off her beau's class ring, class ring.

 

Something to devour,

 

Teachers apple, just the thing.

 

 

CHORUS

 

Now she's in Detention Hall.

 

For her sin, Detention Hall.

 

 

VERSE 3

 

Tripped a stupid sophomore,

 

Didn't care his pack was full, was full.

 

Got caught on camera. Dad is sore!

 

He's meeting with the principal.

 

 

CHORUS

 

Now I'm in Detention Hall.

 

They say it's,

 

For my sins, Detention Hall.

 

 

BRIDGE

 

Go on and rock those yoga pants,

 

And act a fool. Yeah, only so much they can do.

 

And while your rep might be enhanced.

 

You'll be a tool if you're expelled from MSU.

 

 

VERSE 4

 

Spreading lots of rumors,

 

'Bout a girl who's new to school, to school.

 

"QB's in her bloomers."

 

Time to learn the Golden Rule.

 

 

CHORUS

 

While I'm in Detention Hall.

 

For my sins, Detention Hall.

 

 

VERSE 5

 

Teacher's looking iffy.

 

Wish I wore a mask and gloves, and gloves.

 

Got out in a jiffy.

 

Yeah, I flew the coupe, because...

 

 

CHORUS

 

Had to make Detention Hall.

 

Hey, it was,

 

No mistake. Detention Hall.

 

 

VERSE 6

 

In "The Lounge" escaping.

 

With the other "Best in Class".

 

Teacher caught us Vaping.

 

So we cannot get a pass.

 

 

CHORUS

 

Now we're in Detention Hall.

 

And we have to,

 

Hold it in, Detention Hall.

 

 

BRIDGE #2

 

While sitting in home room I wrote,

 

Something so darn good that it made my Mamma weep.

 

So future wordsmiths should take note:

 

Given a chance to write, you might as well go deep.

 

 

VERSE 7

 

Makeup ain't like putty.

 

Yeah, they wear it light at Pres, at Pres.

 

Show up looking slutty,

 

Find out what the rule book says:

 

 

CHORUS

 

That you're in Detention Hall.

 

Where the nuns will,

 

Always win, Detention Hall.

 

 

VERSE 8

 

Guess I make 'em sadder,

 

Wasting opportunities, 'ities.

 

Told 'em that I'd rather,

 

Pass on learning Socrates..

 

 

CHORUS

 

Now I'm in Detention Hall.

 

Yeah, I know it's,

 

For my sins, Detention Hall.

 

 

The End.
