    People gonna say
    "If you need a break
    Someone will take your place"
    People gonna try
    To tell you that you're fine
    With dollars in their eyes
    Just remember
    Don't let them f*ck you honey, no oh
    Don't let them try
    Ooh, don't let them hurt you, baby
    Just say, "Recess, I'm tired"

    I already have a theory of this song and how it might tie into the movie: the concept and message behind it probably has to deal with mental health- after all, Melanie announced a few times that there would be a song about the "importance of mental health"
    Also, it's possible that this song plays toward the end of the movie, as Melanie's character CryBaby is shown in an asylum and the whole idea of her being in school was maybe just a dream or delusion/ hallucination the whole time
    I mean hopefully thats not completely the case though the whole plot of the movie sounds too specific for it to turn out to be unreal
