The Lyrics

This was written in the early 90's, and performed as part of a "welcome to campus" freshman convo on a university campus.
Freshmen

When I came here I brought everything
I had plans to make my dorm room look so nice
Now I can’t find my textbooks-
Too much junk on the floor
Should have listened to my parents’ advice

I can’t be held responsible
Not ready for this rat race
I won’t be held responsible
Why’d I leave home in the first place

For the life of me I cannot remember
What made us think that we were wise-
College life’s a big surprise
For the life of me I just wanna leave
I want to go home again
We are merely freshmen

My best friend took a seven-thirty class—
Said it was better
He stayed up to study and then he overslept
Now he’s guilt stricken sobbing by the President’s door
Wants to change his major ‘cause he just feels so inept
He says...

I can’t be held responsible
Not ready for this rat race
I won’t be held responsible
Why’d I leave home in the first place

For the life of me I cannot remember
What made us think that we were wise-
College life’s a big surprise
For the life of me I just wanna leave
I want to go home again
We are merely freshmen

We tried to wash our clothes-we made a mess
We’ve got them all held together with paperclips
And now we’re homesick and sobbing with our heads on the floor
We want to be cool but we feel just like wimps
We say...

I can’t be held responsible
Not ready for this rat race
I won’t be held responsible
Why’d I leave home in the first place

For the life of me I cannot remember
What made us think that we were wise-
College life’s a big surprise
For the life of me I just wanna leave
I want to go home again
We are merely freshmen
