I got the High Schooler Blues, don’t ya know, don’t cha know it
Got the High Schooler Blues yes-sir-ree
Got the High Schooler Blues, don’t ya know, don’t cha know it
Got the High Schooler Blues stuck with me

 

My backpack weighs a ton
And my heart weighs double
As the work’s stackin up
I know I’m in for trouble

 

And my locker won’t open
Though I’m pullin at the door
When I finally get inside
I forget what I’m lookin for

 

I got the High Schooler Blues, don’t cha know, don’t cha know it
Got the High Schooler Blues in my pencil case
Got the High Schooler Blues drivin me crazy
Got the High Schooler Blues written on my face

 

Walkin in the halls feels so gosh darn lonely
I wish I had somebody to talk to
Yet when I actually have a friend beside me
I’m praying I’ll have time alone soon

 

Cuz I wanna talk to people
And I wanna crack some jokes
But listenin to their own woes
It makes me wanna croak

 

(Ironic ain’t it?)

 

I got the High Schooler Blues, don’t cha know, don’t cha know it
Got the High Schooler Blues buggin me
Got the High Schooler Blues pullin at my heartstrings
Got the High Schooler Blues and I wanna be free

 

I’m countin down the days
Til I can graduate
And I’m prayin to the Lord
That I’ll make it to Friday

 

My parents roll their eyes
When they hear me sigh
Cuz they know when I’m outta school
I’m still gonna whine

 

I got the High Schooler Blues, don’t ya know, don’t cha know it
Got the High Schooler Blues till I’m eighteen
Got the High Schooler Blues just like e’erybody else
Got the High Schooler Blues stuck with me

Some days you're just blue.  High school certainly amplifies the effect.  The best way to deal with it, I think, is to laugh at yourself.
