The Lyrics

This year, there was a change in the grading policy for gym that would base everyone's grade on skill rather than effort. The girls weren't very happy with that, because the boys in the class never pass the ball to the girls, we never get to show any skill. (Not that we have any, but that's another story.) So we complained a lot and they don't grade it that way anymore. (At least, if they did I would be failing.) So anyway, this song is about the new stupid grading policy. Enjoy. Or don't. Whatever.
Well I just heard the news today
It seems my grade is gonna change
And they're the guys who are to blame
They take the ball and run away

While I'm wide open under the basket
Well, I'm in this game
Oh won't they let me play?
'Cause I'm wide open
'Cause I'm wide open

Well I dunno why I'm ready
To be here when I have to see
Them take a step and throw it by my side
Guess that's the law they've created, why???

'Cause I'm wide open under the basket
Well, I'm in this game
Oh won't they let me play?
While I'm wide open
Now everyone complains
And I won't budge, oh won't they let me play
While I'm wide open
Still I'm wide open
Oh won't they let me play, oh yeah
While I'm wide open
Wide open

If I had just one wish, only one demand
I hope my teacher sees, I hope she understands
That I don't play because I just don't have the chance
And they can't see me here, but I'm wide open

Yes, I'm wide open under the basket
Well, I'm in this game
Oh won't they let me play
'Cause I'm wide open
Now everyone complains
And I won't budge, oh won't they let me play
While I'm wide open
Still I'm wide open
Oh won't they let me play, oh yeah
While I'm wide open
Wide open

Pretty good song. I didn't think I'd get it (so far removed from gym class), but I had a few chuckles.

Awesome parody! But I think the pacing and grammar were off a bit to get it to fit, but most of the time, it worked. Good job. I don't have fond memories of gym class either...
