The Lyrics

As the May 1st SATs draw nearer, a new wave of juniors are terrified by the implications. I don't think this song really applies to me (except the last verse about Reed), but it's awfully catchy, no?
Maybe it would be fun, and helpful in the long run
To get a little work done, and learn math.
Maybe it would be cool, to get in a good school,
Not have to be a fool, just an ass.
This is just the first time, probably the worst time, if I could just reverse time, I'd learn fast.

Testing, S, A, T, can anybody save me, it is
Going to kill me, it's already enslaved me, If I
Fail amazingly, will I become depraved, we

Bought Princeton Review's book, we gave it a careful look,
And from its pages we took, vocab; throngs.
We haven't really learned them, haven't found out what the words meant,
Hope the college board prefers them, all wrong.
Kind of like the last time, when I said that I would pass fine,
If we're living in the past I, lie on...

Testing, S, A, T, can anybody save me, it is
Going to kill me, it's already enslaved me, If I
Fail amazingly, will I become depraved, we
Recongnize our pencils are used as stencils, to
Trace our futures, and
Tell us that we're slackers, lacking finish and laquer, a self-esteem attacker,

Testing, S, A, T, can anybody save me, it is
Going to kill me, it's already enslaved me, If I
Fail amazingly, will I become depraved, Reed's
Where I'll be attending, with my projected ending
So is my future pending, or pre-penned?

Testing, S, A, T, can anybody save me, it is
Going to kill me, it's already enslaved me, If I
Fail amazingly, will I become depraved, gee.
Testing, S, A, T.
Testing, S, A, T.

Many kids today are taking it two or three times. I don't remember that option. The National Lampoon ran a parody many years ago, the "Stupid Aptitude Test". My favorite question. One where you had to calculate how many dollars in yearly income for the rest of your life each point on the SAT is worth. Then the next five questions were ridiculously hard.

That was pure awesomeness. You should take part in next month's parody of the month contest (check the forum) - I think you'd have a good chance with this. *checks your other parodies list*

I agree. This is an excellent parody, with the timing almost perfecting in every place. I'm actually kind of scared of the S.A.T's now, because, though I'm Canadian, I found out I have to take them anyway if I wanna go to NYU.
