The Lyrics

the transition from 5th grade to 6th was soooo tough...ah...those were the days.....
Joe nearly hit the wall
He never had it all
One inhaler a day
For the rest of 6th grade
His dreams went out the door
When he passed out of grade 4
Only been in one school
What happened to his cool?

He was gonna be on track team
He was gonna be their best
He was gonna sing for show choir
And become a famous scientist
His brand-new backpack, green
Is now the enemy
Looks at his sinking life
And nothing....nothing...has been alright since

Cooties, and Batman
And nickelodeon
There was Gameboy, and Sega
Video games that he played
200 kids at school
Tell him that he's uncool
'Cause he's still preoccupied
With 19..19...1995

He's seen all the classics
He knows every line
Mulan and Toy Story 2
He's even seen "Bring it on"
He rocked out to N'Sync
He even saw them live
He thought he's start a band
When 9th grade did arrive

Where's the hair gel, and the Old Navy?
And why are there so many teachers that he has to work with?
When did basketball become a cut team?
Whatever happened to cartoons, recess?
(Big parts of his life were)

Cooties, and Batman
And nickelodeon
There was Gameboy, and Sega
Video games that he played
200 kids at school
Tell him that he's uncool
'Cause he's still preoccupied
With 19..19...1995

He hates time to make it stop
When when did slang words turn to "shred" from "rock?"
And when did computers, do animation?
Please, make this stop
Stop!
And bring back

Cooties, and Batman
And nickelodeon
There was Gameboy, and Sega
Video games that he played
200 kids at school
Tell him that he's uncool
'Cause he's still preoccupied
With 19..19...1995

Woohoo!

The cooties, and Batman
And nickelodeon
There was Gameboy, and Sega
Video games that he played
200 kids at school
Tell him that he's uncool
'Cause he's still preoccupied
With 19..19...1995

I like the lyrics a lot, but the pacing's a litte off. Good overall though.

Mulan and Toy Story 2 weren't released in 1995 they were released in 1998 and 1999 you should've put in Pocahontas and Toy Story 1.

Good thought but I think that the pacing and rhyme scheme was a little off.

No mention of Bill vs. Newt?
