  • "Principal's Office," did not become a huge hit, it was still nominated for Best Rap Video at the 1990 MTV Video Music Awards. (I B Emerson)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Now normally if I can help it
    I don't spend a lot of time in a principal's office
    (RING!!!) What!? 9'o Clock!!!
    Now as I get to school
    I hear the late bell ringing
    Running through the hall
    I hear the glee club singing
    Get to the office
    I can hardly speak
    'Cause it's the third late pass that I go this week
    So to my first class I run and don't walk
    All I hear is my sneakers and the scratching of chalk
    And when I get to the room
    I hear the teacher say,
    "Mr. Young, I'm happy that you could join us today."
    I try to sit down so I can take some notes
    But I can't read what the kid next to me wrote
    And if that wasn't enought to make my morning complete
    As I try to get up I find this gum on my seat
    And with the seat stuck to me,
    I raise my hand and say,
    "Excuse me, but can I go to the bathroom, ma'am?"
    The teacher got upset and she screamed out "No"
    It's off to the principal's office you go
    12'o clock comes with mass hysteria
    Everybody rushes down to the cafeteria
    Picked up my tray to have Thursday's lunch
    And when I tried the applesauce
    I heard it crunch
    I'm running up the stairs with a front tooth broken
    The nurse just laughs and says,
    "You must be joking."
    I look up at her with a smile on my face
    No joke 'cause my front tooth is out of place
    So I walk to school with ice on my lip
    A nurse's late pass like a gun on my hip
    My books are real heavy
    I walk and I'm dragging
    Ain't no school lunch next week,
    I'm brown-bagging it
    Forget class
    I'ma shoot some ball
    With a late pass I've got no trouble at all
    But then the nurse walks up and says,
    "What do ya know?
    It's off to the principal's office you go"
    Passing notes is my favorite pastime
    I can't wait to find a girl to pass mine to
    To express my feelings
    Give me a week
    Me and the girl will be dealin
    Now one young lady was looking at me
    I said,
    "Hi, my name is Marvin, known as Young MC."
    But then the bell rang and the teacher came in
    And that's when the game of passing notes will begin
    I wrote the first note and told her she was fine
    And I hope that the two of us could spend some time
    She wrote me back and told me you're fine, too
    I'd love to go on a date and spend some time with you
    So I sat there reeling and looking at the ceiling
    Words can't express the way that I was feeling
    Then I thought to myself,
    The sure way to get her is to write another note
    Oh, yes, a love letter
    When I finished the note it was ready to pass
    The teacher took it
    And read it right in front of the class
    She read it word by workd and line by line
    And everybody who was laughing was a friend of mine
    Even my girl was laughing
    It was too late
    No need to write another note
    'Cause there would be no date
    The teacher looked at me and I said,
    "I know, it's off to the principal's office I go"
    Yo, you think this bad?
    Wait till I get my report card
    (I B Emerson)
