  • Finals blew, I barely knew
    My graduation speech
    And with college out of reach
    If I can't find a job it's down to dad
    And Myrtle Beach

    So, I'm bailing this town-or
    Tearing it down-or
    Probably more like
    Hanging around,
    Hanging around

    Everyone I know is acting weird
    Or way too cool
    They hang out by the pool
    So I just read a lot and ride my bike
    Around the school

    'Cause I'm bailing this town-or
    Tearing it down-or
    Probably more like
    Hanging around,
    Hanging around

    And all that I need now
    Is someone with the brains
    And the know-how
    To tell me what I want,
    Anyhow

    Twelfth of June, a gibbous moon
    Was this the longest day?
    I'll walk down to the bay
    And jump off of the dock and watch
    The summer waste away

    Then, I'm bailing this town-or
    Tearing it down-or
    Probably more like
    Hanging around
    Hanging around
    Just hanging around

    So tell me what I want Writer/s: CLOWES, SILL, THOMAS
