​Post-Collegiate Shuffle

This song is by The Grammar Club.

Go to school. Build your future, my son.
That's what they told me once, when I was
Thirteen, nineteen, twenty.
Now I
Don't get, don't get any.
Temp work blue is what it got or me.
Call in our ronin secretary.
Oh what jolly capers with my
Forty-thousand-dollar piece of paper.
(Forty thousand dollar piece of paper.)

I don't know but I've been told
(I don't know but I've been told)
There's self-sufficiency, when I get old.
(There's self-sufficiency, when I get old.)
That I could make the changes I hold dear,
(That I could make the changes I hold dear,)
If I could find a way
(If I could find a way)
Away from here.
(Away from here.)

I've read that we suffer entitlement.
Baby boomers controlling and
Taking our rent.
Where is the beautiful life that I was promised?
They say we'll be fine if we suck it up.
Shit's been sucking so much that we're
All fed up.
They tell us we're trying to find ourselves
But when we show them our resume they find someone
Else.
[Show them our resume they find someone else.],
Because,

I don't know but I've been told
(I don't know but I've been told)
There's self-sufficiency, when I get old.
(There's self-sufficiency, when I get old.)
That I could make the changes I hold dear,
(That I could make the changes I hold dear,)
If I could find a way
(If I could find a way)
Away from here.
(Away from here.)

Community college dropout
Name's Beef Thompson, I'm no boy scout
You just go for moms and dads
All the college life I've needed I got it all from
Undergrads
Taking classes you don't need
In your tiny little dorm rooms smoking weed
And pretending that you're deep when you ain't
Creative writing major? Yo, that's so quaint
Stressed out 'cause you're in debt
For a tiny piece of paper that you won't get
Unless you're willing to jump through all their hooops
Yo I've prepared your last meal and here's your noose
Not here only to scare ya
I'm trying to prepare ya
Because the four-year degree is the biggest lie in
America.

I don't know but I've been told
(I don't know but I've been told)
There's self-sufficiency, when I get old.
(There's self-sufficiency, when I get old.)
That I could make the changes I hold dear,
(That I could make the changes I hold dear,)
If I could find a way
(If I could find a way)
Away from here.
(Away from here.)

If I could suture a future to the past,
If I could break the system from its grasp,
I wouldn't have to rely on rock and roll
To be the one commanding full
Control.

Yo I'm way bright and you know I was raised right
But no books is open when I'm pulling an all night
I'd rather get my masters is causing people laughter
'Cause it's so much more rewarding than just working on
My grammar
Never been cool and I'm far from a fool
But you'll never hear me whine "I wish I went to a
Private school"
Want a good job, well that's just fine
I'mma work this stage and work this rhyme
And remind myself that I'm an individual
School is just a ritual in makin' people miserable
Got your BS in CS? GREAT!
What's it like being another sheep scratching at the
Gate?
Just remind yourself you'll have fun when you're done
When you're just another drone - one zero zero one
Wish ya good luck, frankly you're gonna need it
You may think I'm getting cheated but I'll never be
Defeated
NO!
