What's not there

What is not there is often more instructive than what is there. The eye ought not to be satisfied with seeing, nor the ear with hearing. A word never heard in the thousands and thousands of pop songs: student.

How about "studied" in Pulp's Common People. Is that close enough? http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/pulp/commonpeople.html

That is because almost no words rhyme with it. Prudent is the one that comes to mind, there's not many more

However, by association would you accept "Teacher's Pet" a Doris Day hit where a student is clearly central to the song?
