You wake up late for school, man you don't wanna go
You ask you mom, "Please?", but she still says, "No!"
You missed two classes, and no homework
But your teacher preaches class like you're some kind of jerk
CHORUS: You gotta fight for your right to party
Your pop caught you smoking, and he said, "No way!"
That hypocrite smokes two packs a day
Man, living at home is such a drag
Now your mom threw away your best porno mag (Bust it!)
Don't step out of this house if that's the clothes you're gonna wear
I'll kick you out of my home is you don't cut that hair
Your mom busted in and said, "What's that noise?"
Aw, mom you're just jealous it's the Beastie Boys!
REPEAT CHORUS (x2)
My car doesn't have a CD player, so I only listen to the radio while I'm driving. I mostly have it on the 80s retro station, though I'll switch around during commercials. Anyway, my day on campus was neatly bookended: as I exited the freeway to get on the main road to campus at 11:00 this morning the Beastie Boys "Fight For Your Right (to Party)" came on the radio and I rocked out all the way to my building's parking lot. And then, at 9:20 tonight as I was pulling out of the same parking lot, the same song came on. Purely random coincidence? Message from the universe?
