Lyrics:

I just found out I’m wasting time with most of my education

You don’t need Latin, you don’t Greek, It’s no good for conversation!

Throw away your LLD’s, your old MD’s, your PhD’s,

There’s a million doctors carving,

And a million lawyers solving, If you want to eat Here’s the pause complete

Called the RRR degree

Follow me, with... Readin’, ritin’, rhythm,

Get acquainted with ’em,

Don’t cut classes, how time passes now!

Newest syncopation!

Fluid syncopation!

See those scholars with wilted collars and howl.

You can cut biology,

Psychology?

Don’t take it! chemistries a mystery And history?

We’ll make it! You’ll do wonders with ’em,

With your readin’ and your ritin’ and your rhythm.

You’ll go far with an RRR degree!

RRR, RRR,

Readin’, ritin’, rhythm, Readin’, ritin’, rhythm,

RRR, RRR,

Readin’ ritin’, rhythm, Readin’, ritin’, rhythm.

Readin’, ritin’, rhythm, Get acquainted with ’em,

Let your dome work, do your homework right here!

And when you’re home say, Brother, teach it to your mother,

It’s a sellout, let us yell out right here!

Oh, get your cap and gown, come down, it’s time for graduation.

See those rows of saxophones play the [interjection]!

Oh, you’ll to wonders with ’em,

With your readin’ and your ritin’ and your rhythm,

You’ll go far with an RRR deg-readin’ ritin’ rhythm,

Readin’, ritin,’ rhythm.

Readin,’ ritin’, readin’, ritin’, readin’, ritin’, rhythm!
