Verse
F
Naughty boys in nasty schools
    Ab
Headmaster's breaking all the rules
Bb
Having fun and playing fools
B               Bb       Ab
Smashing up the woodwork tools 

w/verse
All the teachers in the pub
Passing round the ready rub
Trying not to think of when
The lunch time bell will ring again 

Chorus
Bb             Bbm
Oh what fun we had
    F
But did it really turn out bad
Bb              Bbm
All I learnt at school
    C
Was how to bend not break the rule
Bb             Bbm
Oh what fun we had
    F
But at the time it seemed so bad
Bb               Bbm
Trying different ways to
C                 B   Bb  Ab
Make a difference to...

w/verse
The headmaster's had enough today
All the kids have gone away
Gone to fight with next door's school
Every term that is the rule
Sits alone and bends his cane
Same old backsides again
All the small onmes tell tall tales
Walking home and squashing snails 

Chorus
Bb             Bbm
Oh what fun we had
    F
But did it really turn out bad
Bb              Bbm
All I learnt at school
    C
Was how to bend not break the rule
Bb             Bbm
Oh what fun we had
    F
But at the time it seemed so bad
Bb               Bbm
Trying different ways to
C                     Db  D
Make a difference to  the day

w/verse
Lots of girls and lots of boys
Lots of smells and lots of noise
Playing football in the park
Kicking pushbikes after dark
Baggy trousers dirty shirt
Pulling hair and eating dirt
Teacher comes to break it up
Bang her on the head with a plastic cup 

Chorus

Bb            B Bb A Ab
Baggy trousers                      to fade
