Law School State of Mind

Special thanks to Singletree Productions and Scotty Tecce.

Lyrics:
Yeah Im in that Law School
Learning in the Lawbrary
Right next to my starbucks
Ill be legal forever
Im a new Learned Man
Learning law from Learned Hand
Friendly and Cardoza, SCOTUS Opinions pack it in
I used to cop w/ glannon,
Nutshells and Q&A
Civ Pro Bible told me
what he gonna say
to the study carousel
On top the Underwood
Catch my on that westlaw working on my 1L brief
Clicking yellow flags
Gotta Sheperdize this
Thats how Dedman Roll
2nd best in Texas
Me Im in that SMU
Home of that W
Now I live on Law review
Soon Ill be pimping doc review
Shout out to tha big laws
With a partner memo due
Sitting latenight
Cleaning staff givin; high-5s
BigLaw I be topped out
I Could write a winning brief
Tell from my attitude that Im most
definitely in
Law School
Legal Jungle where law is made from
Is this what you wanna do?
To go to Law School
Reading opinions is all youll do
Highlights in your case books
Let hear it for law school, law school law school
Call me Socrates cuz I be about the same
rock his method so hard Im Socratic Method man
Put on my ghostface, but I aint in Wu Tang
But I got Wu Gang do my study group
Welcome to the top ten
Learning marshal Madison
Expanses of the commerce clause
And jurisdiction
District court appellate court supreme court remand it back
Third branch of govt going to check and balance that
Bell curve grade is there for the taking
Top tens a pity 9/10 wont make it
Me I gotta deans list and OCI made
Interviewing with you, Im expecting to get paid
140- K is low
not enough hardly,
You want to defer me, Thank you but sorry
Im a hot commodity
Long live this law student yo
Im from that grad school you know as
[chorus]
The bell curve in Binding
Yall are finding
You need to change expectations quick
O-C-I is
mostly Non Interviewees
Who only studied casually, gradually became the bottom third
Somebodys gotta get the C
Left out of the interview
Now youre stuck in debt
And job security aint set and employments not a sure bet
Job market looks grim Gotta pity them
students w/ bad grades city jobs are filled with them
College took a grad trip, and now her debt is busting out
But at this point, might as well just ride it out
Stafford Loans are your God when your working
Cant afford not work life starts when a Bar ends
Came into this school, now cocky as you could be
Big partner job with 2 commas in the salary
LSAT gotcha tricked but you got tricked on the final
Shouldnt have gone to sleep should have slipped you an adderal
Law School
Legal Jungle where law is made from
Is this what you wanna do?
Reading opinions is all youll do
Highlights in your case books
Let hear it for law school, law school law school
No hands in the air cuz Im not a gunner
Dont talk but gotta job for the summer
Get paid, wined and dined while Im there
Putcha highlighter in the air, everybody say yeaaahh
Come on come
