O lagarto ibérico

Sobre a quase inexistência de quadros médios em Portugal, sobre o absurdo preconceito de que se deve ser licenciado em qualquer coisa e a qualquer custo, e sobre os licenciados sem emprego que se dedicam à frequência compulsiva de cursos de pós-graduação de utilidade discutível e aplicação inexistente, disse-me, a propósito, alguém mais sábio e experiente do que eu:
"O meu sobrinho é, actualmente, o maior especialista no lagarto ibérico existente em Portugal. Está desempregado."
"Now beat that
And your mothers sayin “go to college”
So u finish college and its wonderful
U feel so good
And after all the partying and crazing
And don’t forget about that drug habit u picked up at school bein around your peers
Hey now you’ll get that 25 thousand job a year and
You’ll spend all your money on crack cocaine,
but it’ll be you’re money
No more borrowin money from mom for my high
So now you get ur degree tattooed on your back
your so excited about it
If u continue to work at the GAP,
after several interviews,
Oh my god!
You’ll come in at an entry level position and when u do that
If u kiss enough ass,
you’ll move up to the next level
Which is being a secretary’s secretary!
And boy is that great, you get to take messages for the secretary
Who never went to college
Shes is actually the bosses niece,
so now your apart of the family

You know what college does for you?
It makes you really smart man
All you kids want to talk in the back of the class not me,
I listened, okI was a hall monitor,
This was meant to be,
You know how many classes I took,
extra classes extra classes
No I’ve never had sex but you know what,
my degree keeps me satisfied
When a lady walks to me says
“hey u know whats sexy?”
I say “no, I don’t know what it is,
but I bet I can add up all the change in your purse very fast”.
You keep it going man,
you keep those books rolling,
You pick up those books your going to read
And not remember and you roll man.
You get that a sociate degree, okay,
Then you get your bachelors,
then you get your masters
Then you get your master's masters,
Then you get your doctron,
You go man, then when
everybody says quit
You show them those degree man, when
Everybody says hey, your not working,
Your not making in money,
You say look at my degrees and you look at my life
I'm 52, so what?
