Lyrics of

My old school

I remember the 35 sweet goodbyes
When you put me on the Wolverine up to Anandale
It was still September when your daddy was quite surprised
To find you with the working girls in the county jail

Well I was smoking with the boys upstairs
When I heard about the whole affair
I said oh no, William and Mary won't do now
Well I did not think the girl could be so cruel
And I'm never going back to my old school

Orleanders growing outside her door
Soon they're gonna be in bloom up in Anandale
I can't stand her doing what she did before
Living like a gypsy queen in a fairy tale

Well I hear the whistle but I can't go
I'm gonna take her down to Mexico
She said woe no, Guadalajara won't do now
Well I did not think the girl could be so cruel
And I'm never going back to my old school

California tumbles into the sea
That'll be the day I go back to Anandale
Tried to warn you about Chino and Daddy-Gee
But I can't seem to get to you through the US mail

Well I hear the whistle but I can't go
I'm gonna take her down to Mexico
She said woe no, Guadalajara won't do now
Well I did not think the girl could be so cruel
And I'm never going back to my old school
