INTRO:

(I usually delete the following vocal vamp, and go right into
the first verse)

Ever have one of those days when it seems like everybody is
getting on your case from your teacher all the way down to
your best girlfriend?

Well I used to have them just about all the time...

But I found a way to get out of it...

Let me tell you about it!


First Verse:

[C#/D]   Sitting in the classroom

[C#/D]   thinking it's a drag.
[A/A#]   Listening to the teacher
[A/A#]   well just aint my bag.
[C#/D]   The noon bells ring
[C#/D]   you know that's my cue.
[A/A#]   I'm gonna meet the boys
[A/A#]   on floor number two


Chorus:

[G]Smokin' in the Boys Room, Yes indeed, I was
[D]Smokin' in the Boys Room
[A]Now teacher don't you fill me
[G]up with your rules.
[A]Everybody knows that
G~
Smoking aint allowed in school.


Verse 2: (Chord patterns are same as Verse 1)

Checking out the halls
making sure the coast is clear.
Looking in the stalls,
no, there aint nobody here.
My buddy Fang,
and me and Paul,
To get caught would
surely be the death of us all.

Chorus 2:

(Same as first chorus)

Third Verse: (Chord patterns are same as Verse 1)

They put me to work
in the School Book Store.

The teacher was looking
for me all around.
two hours later,
you know where I was found.

[G]Smokin' in the Boys Room, Yes indeed, I was
