Education is your vehicle, it’s kinda like your first car
Do you want to fly like an eagle or live your life with a limp?
If you got good grades already, then the burden’s no lighter
College is the place to make your dreams come true
Number 1: study for 6 hours a day
Number 2: don’t allow yourself to skip any class
Number 3: Don’t feel you have to drink till your drunk
Number 4: don’t forget this part of the rhyme
Number 5: make sure you learn to manage your time
Number 6: Getting a college degree is real cool
Number 7: make sure you know your major by heart
Number 8: baby mamas are created by sex
Life is kinda serious, and it ain’t playin no games
Yes this ride is costly, cause pimpin ain’t free
Education lets you travel down the highway of life
