This song came out a couple of years before I got in high school............We did smoke in the Boys room until we were given designated smoking areas in my sophomore year. After that it didn't make much sense to smoke in the bathrooms anymore. Now days I don't think there is any smoking allowed on School properties.
This song was cool because it was school related.....................Sorta like Alice Cooper's "Schools out for the Summer" was.
