Literally an old school song.

lyrics

said you want an old school song
so i'm giving you an old school song
where's everybody from my old school gone
now i've learnt that its been too long

My first school was Gilmorton outskirts of Leicester,
thirty minute bus ride to get there,
Reception, dad would drop me off and I would get scared
immensely,
everything was too large, from the rooms,
to the year 6's playing 40/40 in the school yard -
this was the deep end, they use to take us swimming
on a Wednesday, and I thought that it was the end,
first time I was underwater bordered by my three friends,
but I forget their names

said you want an old school song
so i'm giving you an old school song
where's everybody from my old school gone
now i've learnt that its been too long

My next school was Grouville, I moved there in Year 3
met Rory in the playground, he immediately steered me
to the computers, I declined, not knowing one day in the future,
we'd connect just like a router,
I played football for the A-team, wasn't a great shooter,
became a keeper, now i'm saving memories,
I share em over FIFA, with Saralis, who I met in Maths class
always copying my work, and told me not to tell the teacher
one of these old days will come around and reach you,
and grab you the sleeve, drag you to the times
that we ran around the beach,
nothing but our dreams and a westerly island breeze
by the time to leave, we sat on benches like thrones
looking at the hall like it was something that we owned
man, that little place was my kingdom,
my school mates I miss em, somewhere in the distance

said you want an old school song
so i'm giving you an old school song
where's everybody from my old school gone
now i've learnt that its been too long

high school, guess who won the prizes for English
now they've asked me back to tell the kids how I did this
I'll stand there and give to them the one golden rule
no matter where you go, don't forget the old school
