The Lyrics

I went to school,
Where the kids call me a loser,
I'm so smart,
Then why can't I get anything figured out?
I didn't know today,
There was a huge test,
I didn't study,
That's why it feels just like I'm failing for the first time

I'm gonna see the dean,
It's really amazing,
That I don't remember,
Seeing any of these questions in class, (questions in class)
I think it's "a",
Cause that's what my friend wrote,
Who is Plato,
And why does it feel just like I'm failing for the first time.

What was McCarthy implying?
Name a poem by Robert Frost.
I didn't think you could divide by zero.
How much would 200 pencils cost?
What the heck is natural selection?
In which country would you find a mime?
Give the steps to a U.S. election,
Everything here has slipped my mind.

It feels just like I'm failing for the first time.
It feels just like I'm failing for the first time.

A twenty dollar bill,
Might get me a eighty,
It's a thrill,
To wonder why everyone else knows this but me, (knows this but me)
I should've called in ill,
Cause now I'm failing
The test is done?!?!!?
I'll hand it in cause it feels just like I'm failing for the first time.
