​High School Nights

This song is by Dave Edmunds and appears on the compilation album Anthology 1968-1990 (1993).

You wake up in the morning and another night's gone.
You tumble out of bed and turn the radio on,
But you just can't think about the day to come
'Cause you're thinking about them high school nights.

Making all the moves, gotta do it in style.
It merely makes the high school day worthwhile.
When the work piles high
And the day drags by
And you never see the end in sight.

I remember those, high school nights.
We had it made them, high school nights.
Those were the days them, high school nights.
You will remember all your life.

The day moves ahead about a light-year long.
You hurry through the halls singing your school song,
But you just can't follow what the hell's going on
'Cause you're thinking 'bout them high school nights.

Staring out the window in a daydream world.
Looking at the parking lot, checking out the girls.
There's a lesson going on, but it ain't getting heard
'Cause you're wondering what'll happen tonight.

I remember those, high school nights.
I'm gonna miss those, high school nights.
They were the best those, high school nights.
You will remember all your life.

High school nights, we had it made.
Them high school nights, those were the days.
Them high school nights, could be the best days of your life.

That's how it used to be, pity it couldn't last
Better days have stopped the flow of parties and livin' fast

The dean's in his office and the writing's on the wall.
Some of us will make it and someone's gonna fall,
But it really don't matter 'cause we're gonna have a ball
When we hit another high school night.

I still remember those high school nights.
We had it made them, high school nights.
Those were the days them, high school nights.
You will remember all your life.

High school nights. I'm gonna miss those high school nights.
They were the best, those high school nights.
Could be the best days of your life.

High school nights. We had it made, them high school nights.
Those were the days, them high school nights.
You will remember all your life.
