The Lyrics

And so the story continues...Original Song:
I get so distracted
I get so distracted

Wipe sleep from my eyes
On this lovely spring morn
School year has gone by
Can almost go home
Then in my head
I realize I
Reached my boiling point-
A paper due now!

‘Bout cotton gin-
Or World War Two?
I do not know what
I’m writing, I’m screwed!
And the class is in
One hour, count down!
And surely I’m doomed
It’s time to buckle down!

I got so distracted
I got so distracted

Got through with one page
In a small chunk of time
I’m so struck with fear
Won’t graduate on time
Got another page
Not incredibly hard
Through two of eight
Twenty minutes have gone

Print the paper out
Done in time, just as planned
Graduate on time
If I turn it in
But I bought some time
But will not review
My focus is gone-
Play games the day through!

Angry Birds Distraction
Words With Friends Distraction

Draw Something Distraction
Twitter Feed Distraction
Damn Facebook Distraction
I get so distracted

Class is such a bore
Grade goes, goes down more
Won’t leave, leave these doors
Here for four years more…

I can relate! I like the specific distraction examples at the end. My favorite line: "Here for four years more…"

Good one. I once put off reading "The Red Badge of Courage" until I finally had to speed-read it the morning of the test. But I made an 85.

I also enjoyed the list of distractions at the end, and can relate to this from my college and high school days. Damn distractions, they're so much more interesting than the work though. Nice work Abbott. Good luck on the series.

I though I had commented on this one already, must have gotten sidewinded...

(SOTM) Great parody about a topic I can really identify with. Nice OS choice, the singer sounds like the Simple Plan guy or the Hoobastank guy (I don't know their names, I don't follow rock music). Maybe Part 4 could be Moves Like Jagger? 555!

Thanks everyone! And Angels and Airwaves was one of the two bands (+44 being the other) that were created after the breakup of Blink 182, Tom Delonge is the lead singer.

SOTM...the bad news is that it doesn't change once you've graduated. Especially loved this in light of my Twitter addiction when I'm supposed to be working. Haha.

I was going to comment but then I started reading MAD magazine, going on Facebook, watching some "Man VS Food", taking my dog for a walk, watching some porn and then I guess I came back her and commented. Great work.

(SOTM) I am the procrastination master!... Or so I thought. You might have me beat LOL! Good job as usual.
