Let me tell you 'bout a girl who's breaking my heart
She decided lately to get smart
She read an article that changed her life
So tired of working in a factory
She joined the Open University.
We used to have a lot of fun you know
Spend our money and away we'd go
But now whenever I go round to call
She's reading Lawrence and T. H. Huxley
With the Open University.
She never cared for school – such a drag
Now she's qualification mad
She's corresponding like a politician
Her main objective is an arts degree
God help the Open University.
