This Is Me In Grade 9

In honour of the awkwardness of Grade Niners.

“Grade 9”

songwriters: Steven Page, Ed Robertson, Andy Creeggan, Jim Creeggan, Tyler Stewart

I found my locker and I found my classes
Lost my lunch and I broke my glasses
That guy is huge! that girl is wailin’!
First day of school and I’m already failing

This is me in grade nine, baby, this is me in grade nine
This is me in grade nine, baby, this is me in grade nine

I’ve got a blue-and-red Adidas bag and a humongous binder
I’m trying my best not to look like a minor niner
I went out for the football team to prove that I’m a man
I guess I shouldn’t tell them that I like Duran-Duran

This is me in grade nine, baby, this is me in grade nine
This is me in grade nine, baby, this is me in grade nine

Well half my friends are crazy and the others are depressed
And none of them can help me study for my math test
Got into the classroom and my knowledge was gone
Guess I should’ve studied instead of watching wrath of khan

This is me in grade nine, baby, this is me in grade nine
This is me in grade nine, baby, this is me in grade nine

They called me chicken legs, they called me four-eyes
They called me fatso, they called me buckwheat
They called me Eddie

This is me in grade nine, baby, this is me in grade nine
This is me in grade nine, baby, this is me in grade nine

I’ve got a red leather tie and a pair of rugger pants
I put them on and I went to the high school dance
Dad said I have to be home by eleven
Aw man I’m gonna miss stairway to heaven

This is me in grade nine, baby, this is me in grade nine
This is me in grade nine, baby, this is me in grade nine

Harvest Moon
Neil Young

Come a little bit closer
Hear what I have to say

Just like children sleepin’
We could dream this night away.

But there’s a full moon risin’
Let’s go dancin’ in the light

We know where the music’s playin’
Let’s go out and feel the night.

Because I’m still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I’m still in love with you
On this harvest moon.

When we were strangers
I watched you from afar

When we were lovers
I loved you with all my heart.

But now it’s gettin’ late
And the moon is climbin’ high

I want to celebrate
See it shinin’ in your eye.

Because I’m still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I’m still in love with you
On this harvest moon.
