Apehead's brother wants to beat up Paul
Some of the girls are down at the mall
Later on it's everyone around to Beck's
Sara, well, she just can't bear
She stays at school so that she can hear

It rocks me like a mother
Joan of Arc and JFK
(Noisy up there)

Oh, oh, oh
She's cut 'em all out of her social circle
Doesn't want to let them get to know Keats or Studs Terkel
But Sara, well, she just can't bear
She stays at school so that she can hear

(Noisy up there)
Copernicus and Fortune's Wheel
And it's noisy up there
It rocks me like a mother
Sara already knows pretty soon she'll be leaving
But she doesn't want to hear about
The sound of the life she'll leave behind
Yeah, it's noisy up there
It rocks me like a mother
Oh, oh, oh
(Noisy up there)
Oh, ohh, oh, ohh
