Welcome to the infamous jungle of high school
Where the smart are undefined and the popular shine
Where the teachers grumble and the athletes rumble
Where the girls gossip and the boys gossip
These are the treacherous four years before college

Welcome to the infamous jungle of high school
Where the homework becomes over bearing and the diseases come from sharing
Where the classes are slow as molasses and the kid becomes a hipster for wearing glasses
Where the learning goes down the chute and the guys see raunchy girls as cute
Leave! Run away as fast as you can, your education is minute!

Welcome to the infamous jungle of high school
Where the meek finally prevail and the immodest reach their destined fail
Where the lessons are less vicious and the educators are less suspicious
Where the knowledge gained isn’t askew and the young men display chivalry for it’s the right thing to do
What am I saying?! This nonsense isn’t true!
Welcome to the infamous jungle of high school.
