  • Lyrics: School Yard Boys Growing up in Flushing and living In a housing project doing time After school we'd order a special and Play the diner's jukebox on one thin dime Eddie was the sweet talker He'd borrowed his one liners from James Dean flicks Chris and Julie were so stuck on us back in 1966 School yards, doo-wop songs Even odds that I'll get past first base tonight Frog and Wormy, high school dropouts They'd go to Jack & Jills just to pick a fight We were so afraid cause they're older Even though we're known as eighth grade's might So we got it in our heads to rob a store So we could prove just what we're worth Well that was just a lot of talk cause The one who rules the roost rules the turf School yards, doo-wop songs Even odds that I'll get past first base tonight School yard boys Jukebox boys Doo-wop boys
