Class Is Optional, A Date With You Is Mandatory

Oh no, I fell asleep in class again.
What can I say?
I just needed to see you one more time.
The teacher wrote me up, that's nothing new,
One more Saturday detention I'm not going too.
It'll lead to suspension, I don't care,
I needed some planning time for our date anyhow.
A phone call home won't phase me at all,
Considering my cell is what he'll call.
I'm more worried about what I'll wear,
Dress to impress, don't want to look like a fool to you.
You were gracious enough to give me a chance,
I won't blow it like all those other guys.
'Cause this could be the moment I fall in love,
Not gonna be stupid and pass it up.
Class is optional,
Might as well skip it.
A date with you is mandatory,
You best believe I'll be there.
I wouldn't pass you up for the world,
I've been anticipating this for so long.
'Cause nothing is more important to me,
Than spending time with the girl I truly adore.
I wasted away in history class,
Decided to carve our initials in the desk.
The teacher screamed at me for not paying attention,
Well, how could I in such a boring class?
I finally got the hang of math,
'Cause I learned that "Me plus you equals forever."
And I might sound cliche,
But I'm falling head over heels for you.
One date and I'm hooked,
I just can't get you off of my mind.

Science isn't nearly as important as trying to express how I feel,
So, my English teacher took the time and allowed me to write down my thoughts.
I always fail but this time I pass,
'Cause I wrote this song for you hoping it's enough to prove,
How much you mean to me.
One date and I was hooked,
I can't get you off of my mind...
