(school bell rings)

The barrel fire's fadin',
My pals are disappearin',
Another night is passin', but I won't go.
It's 2AM at Townie,
And things are goin' my way -
Three buds, a glove, and a foot of snow.
There's two little shits
Sellin' joints on the hill,
And the kids down the lot
Are burnin' cruisers for a thrill.
See, we had each other -
It was us against the world.
Famous for nothing,
Yeah, nothing was our world!

[Chorus 1:]
Well, these lies won't save me,
Don't you know, don't you know?
From the times that made me,
Here we go, here we go!

The courts are fillin' up,
All the kids are comin' down
For a head start on the troubles
Of a long night on the town.
Yeah, thank God it's Saturday,
And half my problems go away -
Sure, the big ones on the way,
But I know how to handle them.
9 to 3 on weekdays,
On the hour Sundays -
The good lord was callin' me,
But I wasn't up!
From the convent to the rectory,
And over in the sacristy,
I'm a goddamn travesty,
And that's just my luck!

[Chorus 1]

[Chorus 2:]
Here we go! (Yeah!)
Their gang went my way for basketball.
My gang went their way for alcohol.
When we met, it wasn't pretty at all...
Still the bells of St. Mary's kept ringin'!

9 to 3 on weekdays,
On the hour Sundays -
Jesus Christ was callin' me!

[Chorus 2]

Their gang went my way for basketball.
My gang went their way for alcohol.
When we met, it wasn't pretty at all...
Still the bells of St. Mary's were ringin'!
The bells of St. Mary's were ringin'!
