Album version:

   I climb up, spending daylight
   Slide down bankrupt on the other side
   Some sweet girl playing my wife
   Runs off with a boy
   whose bike she'll ride

   Playground, it's a playground
   Marked by the masters
   And bruised by the bullies in the
   Playground, every day ground
   Never stop rehearsing
   Rehearsing for the big square world

   Bells will ring, door flies open
   Hare and Greyhound
   in the old kiss chase
   You've been caught, game is ended
   Smack on kisser from her slap on face

   Playground, it's a playground
   Marked by the masters
   And bruised by the bullies in the
   Playground, every day ground
   Never stop rehearsing
   Rehearsing for the big square world

   Watch the leaves all tear away
       One by one
   Leaving you but lined like an exercise book
   What did your report once say?
       Know the one?
   This boy must try harder to please
   from down on his knees

   Playground, playground
   Careful what you say ground
   Playground, playground
   Gonna make you pay ground

   Brain gets bent, heart gets broken
   You can't jump off once the pages turn
   School is out but never over
   That's the only lesson you can learn

   Playground, it's a playground
   Marked by the masters
   And bruised by the bullies in the
   Playground, every day ground
   Never stop rehearsing
   Rehearsing for the big square...
   Playground, it's a playground
   You're for the high jump
   If you let 'em push you in the
   Playground, every day ground
   There's no escaping,
   Escaping from their big square world

   You may leave school but it never leaves you


Demo version:

   I climb up, spending daylight
   slide down drunken on the other side
   Some sweet girl, playing my wife,
   runs off with a boy whose bike she'll ride

   Playground (it's a playground)
   Marked by the masters and bruised by the bullies in the
   Playground (it's a playground)
   Never stop rehearsing, rehearsing for the big square world

   Bells will ring, door flings open
   Hare and greyhound
   in the old kiss chase
   You've been caught, game has ended
   Smack on kisser from her slap on face

   Playground (it's a playground)
   We're marked by the masters and bruised by the bullies in the
   Playground (it's a playground)
   Never stop rehearsing, rehearsing for the big square world

   Watch the leaves all tear away (one by one)
   Leaving your book lined like an exercise book
   What did your report once say (know the one)
   "This boy must try harder to please
   From down on his knees"

   Playground, playground, playground, playground, playground,
   playground, playground, playground

   Brain gets bent, heart gets broken
   You can't jump off once the page is turned
   School is out but never over
   That's the only lesson you can learn

   Playground (it's a playground)
   We're marked by the masters and bruised by the bullies in the
   Playground (it's a playground)
   Never stop rehearsing, rehearsing for the big square

   Playground (it's a playground)
   Go for the high jump if you let 'em push you in the
   Playground (it's a playground)
   There's no escaping, escaping from their big square world

   You may leave school, but it never leaves you
