At the night school

('S') Stay in society, keep pain under wraps
('T') Tend to sobriety, in the tender traps

Nocturnal education

Night school
Nocturnal education

('Y') You ain't been listening to a word I ('Z') said
Yeah

At the night school, yeah
Teaching down at night school
Oooh, yeah
I'm teaching down at night school
Taking classes at the night school
Teaching down at night school
Deep in the night
Deep in the night
Night school
Oooh, yeah
