I Wish I Could Go Back To College

Taken from stlyrics.com.

KATE MONSTER:
I wish I could go back to college.
Life was so simple back then.

NICKY:
What would I give to go back and live in a dorm with a meal plan again!

PRINCETON:
I wish I could go back to college.
In college you know who you are.
You sit in the quad, and think, "Oh my God!
I am totally gonna go far!"

ALL:
How do I go back to college?
I don't know who I am anymore!

PRINCETON:
I wanna go back to my room and find a message in dry-erase pen on the door!
Ohhh...
I wish I could just drop a class...

NICKY:
Or get into a play...

KATE MONSTER:
Or change my major...

PRINCETON:
Or fuck my T.A.

ALL:
I need an academic advisor to point the way!
We could be...
Sitting in the computer lab,
4 A.M. before the final paper is due,
Cursing the world 'cause I didn't start sooner,
And seeing the rest of the class there, too!

PRINCETON:
I wish I could go back to college!

ALL:
How do I go back to college?!
AHHHH...

PRINCETON:
I wish I had taken more pictures.

NICKY:
But if I were to go back to college,
Think what a loser I'd be-
I'd walk through the quad,
And think "Oh my God..."

ALL:
"These kids are so much younger than me."

Hah...

The last line is funny and fitting for me and I'm still in my last semester.

I have a class where I'm the youngest person. By 20 years. Seriously, the next youngest person is in her mid/late 30s (and I'm kind of being generous =O). The oldest person in that class is probably in her late 60s or 70s. This is not the only class I've been in where that has been the case.

Then I have other classes where I am most definitely one of the oldest. Or I'll walk around and see all these people talking about things I talked about 3 years ago. So I go back and forth between feeling ridiculously young and ridiculously old.

Wait till you're 10 years out of college like Brian (a character in Avenue Q). :D
