The Lyrics

There's a key difference between "a refresher course" and "literally the same coursework again". Guess what this student's stuck with?
I'm askin': can I knock off?
I've got prior learnin', done this before, ooh-whoa-oh-oh
Prior learnin' (it's been done), prior learnin'
Ages ago, hey
Hey, hey (been done)
Hey (hey), hey (hey)

Education can be great
But when it's repetitive, it's a pain
Aced this the first time, must I do more, more?
This mornin', woke up kinda late
Thought it was just lag in my brain
But no, I recognise all of this work, work
I shoulda gotten some nice option on sign-up day (hey, hey, hey, hey)
To check off all the things I'd already learned, must say (hey, hey, hey, hey)
Thought that was standard op, this is not okay (hey, hey, hey, hey)
That sign-up dude was a liar, straight-up liar

I know this, can I knock off?
I've got prior learnin', done this before, ooh-whoa-oh-oh
Could have my eyes closed now
And still I'll have written down the top test score, ooh-whoa-oh-oh
Got prior learnin', prior learnin', done this before
Should have that option, prior learnin', done this before
Got prior learnin', prior learnin', done this before (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Repeat class? Awful, prior learnin', done this before (oh-oh-oh)

Prior learnin', prior learnin'

Don't want my time to go to waste
Got copies of all of those old tests somewhere
So next week, can I just hand in those, those?
And I know it looks a bit
Like a brag to say that they were all "A"'s
Don't wanna come off as a smug jerk, jerk
It's simply honest what I got, it's a total pain (hey, hey, hey, hey)
Even then, got somethin' else here that I have to say (hey, hey, hey, hey)
The whole situation was the total same (hey, hey, hey, hey)
I swear it's true, not a liar, I'm no liar

Back then I could not knock off
'Cause of prior learnin', done it before, ooh-whoa-oh-oh
A huge pain in the balls
To lean on muscle recall for the top score, ooh-whoa-oh-oh
Got prior learnin', prior learnin', done this before
Where was the option? Prior learnin', done this before
Got prior learnin', prior learnin', done this before (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
This is so borin', prior learnin', done this before (oh-oh-oh)

I'm sure that I'm not an outcast now, others hate this runaround
Hey
I've done all this crap before, really don't want more
Hey
With this shit, I'm not an outcast now (prior learnin')
Don't y'all hate this runaround? (prior learnin')
A waste of my school day (hey), ev'rybody, bitch now, hey
OH&S, done before (prior learnin')
What's to learn from more (prior learnin')?
Know it all, this blows (hey), huge pain, should go

There's nothin' wrong with toppin' up what you know, okay
I've done this rigamarole 'bout seven times or eight
Call me the expert, Lord of How to Be Safe
I've stopped my own share of fires, real hot fires

Believe me I can knock off
'Cause of prior learnin', done it before, ooh-whoa-oh-oh
I've got a harder course
Could use this time to cram for outside these doors, ooh-whoa-oh-oh
Got prior learnin', prior learnin', done this before (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
I know this subject, prior learnin', done this before (oh-oh-oh)
Got prior learnin', prior learnin', done this before (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Proof in abundance, prior learnin', done this before (oh-oh-oh)
So bored, let me please knock off

I can't tell you how many courses I've done that've had the exact same Health & Safety subject. Retail, Business, Animation, exact same thing. Good practice for social interaction by quashing every eye-roll, though.
