This will go down on your permanent record

Have you ever written down a list of song lines/lyrics that stayed with you for ever and ever? Personally, there’s a really long list. One that keeps me laughing is “this will go down on your permanent record”. I believe I first heard that in a Violent Femmes song. However, I believe many other songs have said similar. I also know that films and television shows have alluded to such an idea.

But, let’s think about this. What permanent record? Honestly, there is no such thing as a permanent record. No one really cares what you did in High School. I’m not too sure those things really follow you. Not much does. Unless, you have a criminal record. That is something different. But this wild idea that little marks from long ago should have an everlasting effect is a bit silly.
