[Verse]
 D                           C
Baby we was making straight A's,
 G                           C
But we were stuck in a dumb daze.
 D                                C
Don't take much to memorize your lies.
 G                         C
I feel like I've been hypnotisized.
 D                                  C
And then that magic man; he come to town.
    G
Whoo wee!
                      C
He done spun my head around.
           D
He said, "Recess is in session.
         C
Two and two make five."
           G
And now baby, oh, I'm alive.

Oh yeah!

I'm alive

[Chorus]
Guitar 1 & Guitar 2
            D                       E
And if you want to be the teacher's pet,
 G                               D
Well baby you just better forget it.
 D                    E
Rock got no reason. Rock got no rhyme.
  G
You better get me to school on time.

Oh you know I was on an honor roll.
 G                          C
Got good grades and got no soul.
 D                                   C
Raised my hand before I could speak my mind.
 G                               C

 D                               C
And then that magic man said to obey.....uh-huh
 G                                  C
"Do what magic man do, not what magic man say."
 D                                        C

 D                C

 G                     C
Now you all know who I am.
 D                          C
I might not be that perfect son.
 G                             C
But ya'll be rockin' when I'm done.

Hey, way to cut and paste the intro from my tab and claim that it's yours! You da man!

You douchebag! You also cut and pasted the solo tabs into this tab. You didn't do anything but write in the words to the song, and you're taking credit for doing the whole thing. I don't see any acknowledgement of anybody elses work anywhere in this tab. You f*cking suck man, and you should rot in hell.
