Lyrics

March, April, May
she crammed night and day
I hadn't seen her smile in a while
March, April, May
she crammed night and day
I hadn't seen her smile in a while
staircase at the university
she threw herself down
and her head split three ways

"If you don't get three A's"
her sweet daddy said
"you're no child of mine and as far as I'm
concerned you're dead"
"if you don't get three A's",
her sweet daddy said
"You're no child of mine and as far as I'm
concerned you're dead"
staircase at the university
she threw herself down
and her head split three ways

"If you don't get three A's"
her lovely boyfriend said,
"your shame is sure to stain
the family name"
"if you don't get three A's"
her lovely boyfriend said
"your shame is sure to stain
the family name"
staircase at the university
she threw herself down
and her head split three ways

Cramming, jamming
pack 'em in, ramming
choc-a-bloc books
power study, polish up
and if it breaks your heart then don't come running to me
cramming, slam 'in
pack 'em in, ramming
choc-a-bloc books
power study, polish up
and if it breaks your legs then don't come running to me.
