Lyrics

Hey schoolgirl in the second row The teacher's lookin' over So I got to whisper way down low To say who-bop-a-loo-chi-bop Let's meet after school at three She said, "Hey babe But there is one thing more My school is over at half past four Maybe whe we're older, then we can date O-oh, let's wait" Hey schoolgirl in the second row The teacher's lookin' over So I got to whisper way down low To say who-bop-a-loo-chi-bop Let's meet after school at three She said, "Hey babe, I got a lot to do It takes me hours 'Til my homework's through Someday we'll go steady So don't you fret O-oh, not yet" Hey schoolgirl in the second row The teacher's lookin' over So I got to whisper way down low To say who-bop-a-loo-chi-bop Let's meet after school at three Then she turned around to me With that gleam in her eye She said, "I'm sorry if I passed you by I'm gonna skip my homework Gonna cut my class Bug out of here real fast" Hey schoolgirl in the second row Now we're going steady Hear the words that I want you to know Well it's who-bop-a-loo-chi-bop You're mine, I knew it all the time
