"THE KNOW SOMETHING/DO SOMETHING/BE SOMETHING RAP"
By Norman "Chico" Roth

WELL, IT'S THE KNOW SOMETHING/DO SOMETHING/BE SOMETHING RAP
I DON'T KNOW NOTHING AND I HAVEN'T DONE CRAP.

AT AGE SIXTY-FIVE, WHEN I'M FEELING STRESS
I EAT SOMETHING/BUY SOMETHING/ FORGET THE REST.

IN JUNIOR HIGH, THEY SERVED US BOOM BOOM BECK
IN THE CAFETERIA, THEY SERVED A LOT OF DRECK.

IF YOU MADE ALL A'S, NO ONE WOULD EVEN SAY "BOO"
BUT DROP YOUR TRAY IN THE CAFETERIA, EVERYONE CRIED "OOOOO"

TWO DAYS IN CAFETERIA, I WOULD NEVER, EVER MISS
HOT DOG DAY AND TURKEY DAY, THAT WAS TOTAL BLISS.

ABOUT THE PRICE OF THOSE LUNCH TICKETS,
MY ANGER I MUST VENT
HOW DARE THEY CHARGE US
SEVEN AND TEN CENTS

JUNIOR HIGH, THE YEARS OF BRACES AND ZITS
AND THOSE BRILLIANT TEACHERS, BRAUN, KASNITZ AND BLITZ

WE'D SAY THE LORD'S PRAYER EVERY MORNING
WITH GREAT RESPECT
NOW THEY SAY WHAT WE WERE SAYING WAS POLITICALLY INCORRECT.

MR. McCLYMONDS AND MR. THOMAS
PLAYED THEIR GOOD-COP/BAD-COP PARTS
AND WE LEARNED NEAT MARGINS AND PERFECT DICTION
FROM ROSIE HARTZ

IN LIBRARY, MISS OETTING WOULD NOT LET YOU TALK
IN ALGEBRA, DOC WAGNER WAS ALWAYS COVERED IN CHALK.

MR. COLBURNE TAUGHT CHEMISTRY TO THE MENTALLY ABLE
WHY DO I STILL HAVE NIGHTMARES ABOUT THE PERODIC TABLE?

MISS SKARINSKY MADE TYPING AN ADVENTURE
YOU WERE NEVER AT EASE
BUT TO THIS DAY, I CAN TYPE FLAWLESSLY
WITH NO LETTERS ON THE KEYS.

I HAVE TO SAY THE SENIOR THEME WAS NOT A LOT OF FUN
I HAD 22 NOTECARDS, ESTELLE FISHER HAD 471.

THERE WAS BAND AND ORCHESTRA.
WEREN'T THEY BOTH THE SAME?
NO BAND WAS MR. DIETZ, AND ORCHESTRA?
NO ONE COULD PRONOUNCE HIS NAME.

IN HYGIENE, THE SEPARATED EACH GAL FROM EACH FELLA
BUT MRS. LOWE TAUGHT US HOW TO DO IT -A-CAPELLA.

COACH CLAUDE "BALLS" SOFIELD WAS HOT TO TROT
AND PUSS IRWIN WAS A LEGEND
WITH HIS UNDERHAND FOUL SHOT.

THE GIRLS PLAYED FIELD HOCKEY AND TRIED TO LOOK CUTE
BUT WAS THERE ANYTHING LESS SEXY THAN THEIR BAGGY GYM SUIT?

THE HEAD MAJORETTE POSITION
IT TOOK A REAL WOMAN TO FILL IT
NOT TO WORRY WE HAD WONDER WOMAN
HARRIET SCHILIT.

OUR FOOTBALL SQUAD WON CITY
THEY WERE REALLY ON THE BEAM
THOUGH BERNIE WEISS NEVER MADE A TACKLE
CAUSE HE COULDN'T SEE THE OTHER TEAM.

YOUR FUTURE TEACHERS OF AMERICA, WAS IT A BLESSING OR A CURSE?
YOU FUTURE NURSES OF AMERICA, DID ANY OF YOU EVER NURSE?

SPECIAL DANCE, MODERN DANCE, SQUARE DANCE TOO
FEATURED BLACK LEOTARDS AND RED, WHITE AND BLUE.

REMEMBER WHAT GAVE YOUR HOMEROOM TEACHER
AN UPBEAT CONNIPTION
IT WAS 100% FOREWARD SUBSCRIPTION.

HOMELAND SECURITY COULD LEARN ITS PROPER ROLE
FROM MISS ZIEGLER'S DREADED HALL PATROL.

WE OFFER A TEN THOUSAND DOLLAR PRIZE, OK HERE'S THE RUB
WHO CAN EXPLAIN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
THE KEY AND GREEN KEY CLUB?

TO RECALL OUR HIGH SCHOOL DAYS BRINGS MUCH ELATION
YA KNOW THE BEST PART OF ALL WAS SUMMER VACATION.

McKINNEY'S MERRY MAIDENS LED GUYS ON A MERRY ROMP
AND WONDERFUL MR. CAYE TAUGHT WITH NO CIRCUMSTANCE OR POMP.

FROM WOODSHOP TO METAL SHOP, THE BOYS TOOK 'EM ALL
NOW WE CAN'T EVEN HANG A PICTURE ON THE WALL.

MISS RIDDLE WAS NO RIDDLE TO HER FOREWARD AND JOURNAL STAFF
AND DR. QUATROCCHI'S SENIOR DISCUSSIONS
WERE ALWAYS GOOD FOR A LAUGH.

OUR SENIOR PROM WAS DELICIOUS, IT REALLY WAS SOMETHING GREAT
I HAD A TUXEDO AND A CORSAGE, BUT DIDN'T HAVE A DATE.

AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO LIES IN BED,
LISTENING TO THE BEE GEES
REMEMBERING THOSE GOOD OLD HIGH SCHOOL DAYS,
AND FLIPPING THRU MY SQUEEGIES?

I SALUTE THOSE SIMPLER DAYS IN POETRY AND PROSE
LIFE BEFORE SUSHI AND LIFE BEFORE PANTY HOSE.

OUR HEARTS WERE LIGHT ALTHOUGH OUR HOMEWORK
BOOKS WERE HEAVY
HEAVEN WAS A DAY AT KENNYWOOD PARK
OR A SPIN IN A '52 CHEVY.

SO TO ALLDERDICE, A SONG OF JOY ARISE
THE ONLY PLACE IN HISTORY
WHERE THE DRAGONS ARE THE GOOD GUYS.

YES, TAYLOR ALLDERDICE HIGH SCHOOL
HALLOWED BE THY NAME
WE PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO YOUR TRIFOLD CREED
TO MOCK YOU WOULD BE OUR SHAME.

AT THE WALL AND AT THE FLAGPOLE
WE MET EACH OTHER EVERY DAY
DO WE LOVE YOU TAYLOR ALLDERDICE-FUCKIN' A
