I got my fingers dirty at the school of rock
I got my fingers dirty so I took a walk
I went up to the country park and hung around
Till after dark, till the girls got home, till the girls got home

    i didn't actually mind Step Into My Office.. but i still think this is the best B&S song "she's called string bean jean because the label on her jeans say 7-8 years old, well that's pretty small"

    Still complaining about "Step Into My Office"? Seriously? That was years and years ago. And there are "pop songs" on the very first album - what do you call "You're Just a Baby"?

    Aw, I forgot how much I loved early B&S. I hadn't listened to them for ages because their newer stuff had mostly left a bit of a bad taste in my mouth, but this is glorious.

    i agree completely with mindybobo.. except maybe the "best b&s song ever" part.

    Best B& S Song ever.. always makes me smile and also brings tears to my eyes.. it's pure nostalgia.. uplifting and sentimental. Makes me think of summer...

    Am I the only one hearing The Offspring in the opening guitar riff?

    This one is great to sing along to, as long as no-one is listening...the lyrics are too embarrassing unless you're Stuart or a cute indiepop kid...

    One of the best B&S songs. I totally agree with timahall. If you compare this song with pop songs like Step Into My Office, you clearly see that B&S is going downhill (when it comes to quality)...

    Best B&S song! To think they went on to do crap like Step Into My Office.
