  • (Did you hear about Travis?)
    (No, what?)
    (I heard he's been hooking up with a teacher!)
    (Nice!)

    And I can hear 'em talking in the hallways
    I'm always late for lunch
    Learning dirty little lessons from you
    Now my name is on the lips of every cheerleader in my school
    Now I'm a legend in the locker room (legendary, baby!)

    (Ah) I was just a snotty-nosed degenerate
    With hit pass perfection
    Dodgin' teachers down to give my late ass detention
    Hardly a heartthrob but I made due
    Using those same 'circle yes or no'
    Notes I used in grade school
    Folded love letters with a tab that read 'pull here'
    Writin' back and forth in notebooks for a full year
    I used to daydream about Ms. Magnus
    The type of fantasies you feel guilty for having
    But who hasn't?
    The only difference beside the age
    Was the fact I acted on it
    And who wouldn't?
    A schoolboy crush met mature woman lust
    And they hit it off so well
    And I could tell the day she asked me
    To stay after class that it was all bad
    But I just bit my lip and acted all mad
    The bell rang, class dismissed
    The door shut and her skirt went up (That's a fact!)

    And I can hear 'em talking in the hallways (let 'em keep talking)
    I'm always late for lunch
    Learning dirty little lessons from you (so sexy)
    Now my name is on the lips of every cheerleader in my school
    Now I'm a legend in the locker room (legendary, baby!)

    We gave a brand new meaning
    To 'after-school special'
    The second that our lips touched
    She kissed my ribs
    And counted each one out loud
    I tried my hardest not to giggle
    But I couldn't 'cause it tickled so much
    She pulled my pants to half-mast
    I said, 'hurry, Miss Sin
    You gonna make me late for math class.'
    The way she praised my balls was vicious
    Now that's what I like to call sacrilegious
    One time became twenty times
    Before we knew it
    We stopped caring about where we would do it
    From the classroom to the bathroom
    And when all the students was gone
    We'd even do it in the staff room
    From F's to A's in less than three days
    Now the underachiever's the one with the best grades
    Made the third floor shake without breakin' a sweat
    Goddamn, it felt good to be the teacher's pet

    And I can hear 'em talking in the hallways (let 'em keep talking)
    I'm always late for lunch
    Learning dirty little lessons from you (so sexy)
    Now my name is on the lips of every cheerleader in my school
    Now I'm a legend in the locker room (legendary, baby!)

    (Ah) Goodness gracious, accusations
    Started flyin' through the building
    Cruel as school children
    This isn't how it was supposed to be
    Reminiscing don't stand so close to me
    And if it's mostly my fault for letting this shit happen
    But I couldn't resist a little adolescent bragging
    I mean, after all I was only fifteen
    And she was showing me things
    My virgin eyes had never seen
    Never forget the little meeting she called
    But when she saw my reaction
    It made her appalled
    So basically what you're sayin' is
    If I don't keep tappin' that ass
    Then you ain't gonna let me pass
    Psh, some punishment, lady
    And as I turned towards the door
    I looked back
    She had her clothes on the floor
    Needless to say I passed with flying colors
    But my teacher was my best friend's mother (damn)

    And I can hear 'em talking in the hallways (let 'em keep talking)
    I'm always late for lunch
    Learning dirty little lessons from you (so sexy)
    Now my name is on the lips of every cheerleader in my school
    Now I'm a legend in the locker room (legendary, baby!)

    And I can hear 'em talking in the hallways (let 'em keep talking)
    I'm always late for lunch
    Learning dirty little lessons from you (so sexy)
    Now my name is on the lips of every cheerleader in my school
    Now I'm a legend in the locker room (legendary, baby!)

    And I can hear 'em talking in the hallways (let 'em keep talking)
    I'm always late for lunch
    Learning dirty little lessons from you (so sexy)
    Now my name is on the lips of every cheerleader in my school
    Now I'm a legend in the locker room (legendary, baby!)
