Lyrics

Old School 101

He was the smartest man, I ever knew
Could fix anything he needed to
He finished 8th grade, before he had to pack it
Never walked across the stage
But he sure could hack it
We put him in the ground, Spring of 85'
But it sure seems like he’s still alive
Must’ve been a late bloomer
We all say
Cause’ it seems he keeps on getting smarter everyday

He was true north and straighter than 6 o’clock
So glad he missed 9/11 and hip-hop
This old world needs to lighten up and have some fun
And get back to a little
Old school 101

Teach the 3 R’s & respect for one another
Get our language right, before we try to learn another
Paddle their butts when a talk won’t get it done
And then show 'em how, The West Was Won

Protect our borders with all our might
Quit the silly space program till we get this planet right
Fix our streets be tough on crime
And back way off of us
We'll be just fine

He was true north and straighter than 6 o’clock
So glad he missed 9/11 and hip-hop
This old world needs to lighten up and have some fun
And get back to a little
Old school 101

Ohhhhh

And I will always hear him say

It ain’t love, till you give it away
Till you give it away
It ain’t love, till you give it away
Till you give it…give it away

He was true north and straighter than 6 o’clock
So glad he missed 9/11 and hip-hop
This old world needs to lighten up and have some fun
And get back to a little
Old school 101

Yeah……Old School 101
Yeah……

It ain’t love, till you give it away……
Ohhh
It ain’t love, till you give it away……
Ohhh
It ain’t love, till you give it away……
Ohhh
It ain’t love, till you give it away

He was the smartest man I ever knew
