Ever have one of those days when it seems like everybody is
getting on your case from your teacher all the way down to
your best girlfriend?

Well I used to have them just about all the time...

But I found a way to get out of it...

Let me tell you about it!


First Verse:

C#/D
   Sitting in the classroom

   thinking it's a drag.

A/A#
   on floor number two

G
Smokin' in the Boys Room, Yes indeed, I was

A
Now teacher don't you fill me

Verse 2: (Chord patterns are same as Verse 1)
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/brownsville_station/smoking_in_the_boys_room_tab.html ]
Checking out the halls
making sure the coast is clear.
Looking in the stalls,
no, there aint nobody here.
My buddy Fang,
and me and Paul,
To get caught would
surely be the death of us all.
