<lj-cut text="Society Dropouts as sung by Tim McManus and The Gays.">

Your story sad to tell
Criminal ne’er do wells
Such fucked up delinquents on the block
Your future’s so unclear now
What’s left of your career now?
Can’t even get a lawyer for a talk.

La la la la la la la la

Society dropout
No graduation day for you
Society dropout
Missed all opportunities out there for you

Well at least while doing all your time, you could try to clean your act up
Instead of spending all your time proving you’re such a fuck-up!

Come on get moving (Come on get moving)
Let’s keep those feeble hopes alive!
Let’s do some proving (Let’s do some proving)
I’ve got the dream now give me the drive!

If you go in for your diploma, you could join the prison job pool
Turn in your toothbrush shank and go back to high school!

La la la la la la la la

Society dropouts (Society dropouts)
Hanging around underneath the stairs
Society dropouts (Society dropouts)
It’s about time you got a scare

You think I can’t teach you anything
You think you’re such a badass
But when you get out you’ll fall flat on your fat ass(es)

Convicts let’s move it
You’ve got to learn to hold a job
Please don’t forget it
Don’t be part of the faceless mob

You think you’re tough, you play it rough, but still the world is cruel
Wipe off that sneering face and go back to high school!

Convict don’t blow it
Don’t put my good advice to shame
Convict you know it
Even the Warden’d say the same!

Now I’ve made the list, get off the tits, I really gotta run!
Gotta be going to get my paperwork all done!
Society dropouts (Society dropouts)

Go back to high school
Society dropouts (Society dropouts)
Go back to high school
Society dropouts (Society dropouts)
Go back to high school!

~end~

“Beauty School Dropout” sung in the movie by Frankie Avalon and the New Direction Girls.  Written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey

Your story sad to tell
A teenage ne'er do well
Most mixed up non-delinquent on the block
Your future's so unclear now
What's left of your career now?
Can't even get a trade in on your smock

[New Directions Girls:]
La la la la la la la la

[Blaine:]
Beauty school dropout
No graduation day for you
Beauty school dropout
Missed your midterms and flunked shampoo
Well at least you could have taken time, to wash and clean your clothes up
After spending all that dough to have the doctor fix your nose up

Baby get moving ([New Directions Girls:] Baby get moving)
Why keep your feeble hopes alive?
What are you proving? ([New Directions Girls:] What are you proving?)
You've got the dream but not the drive

[Blaine with New Directions Girls harmonizing:]
If you go for your diploma, you could join a steno pool
Turn in your teasin' comb and go back to high school!

[New Directions Girls:]
La la la la la la la la

[Blaine:]
Beauty school dropout ([New Directions Girls:] Beauty school dropout)
Hanging around the corner store
Beauty school dropout ([New Directions Girls:] Beauty school dropout)
It's about time you knew the score

[Blaine with New Directions Girls harmonizing:]
Well they couldn't teach you anything
You think you're such a looker
But no customer would go to you unless she was a hooker!

[Blaine:]
Baby don't sweat it ([New Directions Girls:] Don't sweat it)
You're not cut out to hold a job
Better forget it ([New Directions Girls:] Forget it)
Who wants their hair done by a slob?

[Blaine with New Directions Girls harmonizing:]
Now your bangs are curled, your lashes whirled, but still the world is cruel
Wipe off that angel face and go back to high school!

[Blaine:]
Baby don't blow it
Don't put my good advice to shame
Baby you know it
Even Dear Abby'd say the same!

[Blaine with New Directions Girls harmonizing:]
Now I've called the shot, get off the pot, I really gotta fly!

[Blaine:]
Gotta be going to that, malt shop, in the sky!

Beauty school dropout ([New Directions Girls:] Beauty school dropout)
Go back to high school
Beauty school dropout ([New Directions Girls:] Beauty school dropout)
Go back to high school
Beauty school dropout ([New Directions Girls:] Beauty school dropout)
Go back to high school

Love it! And I've got a nice visual of Tim singing and Fiona and the rest doing the backup vocals as he's spooling out the GED program in Season 2.

Well done!
