TXTSPK

We never had a gap year when I attended school
Now when I meet those that did, I feel such a fool
While I rushed to get my grades and a job of work
Others lay in bed till noon studying the art of shirk  
That must be the reason why in the present day
I seem not to understand a word that the kids say
Like kool and awesome omg laters and cu  
Who is Vivienne Westwood or bloody Jimmy Choo
Is Armani Junior child of Monnalisa and Ralph Lauren
What do I say when I’m asked if I come here Ofn 
I’m told I have an ata2ud and that I dhac  
They say that I’m 404 to goi and that they won’t bcnu  
I’m told to go and gal not to be a pita  
I just can’t seem to understand a single word they say
There seems no sense no reason to all those words I hear
Would I comprehend or understand if I’d had that gap year 



TEXTSPEAK ( Translation) 
We never had a gap year when I attended school
Now when I meet those that did, I feel such a fool
While I rushed to get my grades and a job of work
Others lay in bed till noon studying the art of shirk  
That must be the reason why in the present day
I seem not to understand a word that the kids say
Like cool and awesome oh my God see you later and see you
Who is Vivienne Westwood or bloody Jimmy Choo
Is Armani Junior child of Monnalisa and Ralph Lauren
What do I say when I’m asked if I come here often
I’m told I have an attitude and that I don’t have a clue
That I’m clueless, to get over it and that they be seeing you
I’m told to go and get a life not to be a pain in the ass
I just can’t seem to understand a single word they say
There seems no sense no reason to all those words I hear
Would I comprehend or understand if I’d had that gap year
