I'm living in a world where they tell me one thing
Hey, if you do not work you'll become a nothing
"Do what you can every day
You better take the warning
It's up to you if you may
Come back in the morning"

My friends don't like what I'm saying
They know that something must be done
They're going out, they're having fun
Won't even miss me when I'm gone

*I spend my nights in the harbour
Seein' the ships on the bay
I know why they are waiting:
They wanna take me far away

I spend my nights in the harbour
Where the ocean is near
Who will cry when I'm leaving
Who's gonna try to keep me here

When I think of school I remember one thing:
"Hey, if you do not learn you'll become a nothing"
These are the rules of the game:
The more you have been learning
(I know it's true, it's a shame)
The more you'll be earning
Let everyone keep on trying
To get his homework neatly done
I'll find a place where life's more fun
Don't look for me when I am gone

*(Repeat)

Let everyone keep on trying
To get his homework neatly done
I'll find a place where life more fun
Don't look for me when I am gone
