The Lyrics

This is my lament about how I failed my math quiz. If you are a fan of Daniel Powter, don't take offense, because I *never* write parodies that are offensive to the original artist. Enjoy!
Where is the luck I needed for my test?
My mom's gonna kill me, though I tried my best
I think my blue skies faded to gray
I think brain cells have gone away
And I don't need no carrying on...

I've been kissing up- damn, I've hit a new low
I'm faking a smile as I'm heading back home
I think my grades have been way off the line
Failed my math quiz for the second time
And I don't need no carrying on...

[CHORUS:]
Cause I had a bad day
My grades have gone down
I beg my teachers just to turn it around
I say I don't know
But I just can't lie
I paste on a smile and I stifle a sigh
I had a bad day
My transcript don't lie
My grades have gone down, and I really do mind
I had a bad day...
I had a bad day.

When the hell is summer vacation?
Then I won't have to get homework done
And I don't need no carrying on...

[CHORUS:]
Cause I had a bad day
My grades have gone down
I beg my teachers just to turn it around
I say I don't know
But I just can't lie
I paste on a smile and I stifle a sigh
I had a bad day
My transcript don't lie
My grades have gone down, and I really do mind
I had a bad day...

(Oh... vacation...)

Sometimes my mind goes out for coffee
And my answers are counted wrong
I cannot retake it, which I know
I'd give anything to be strong
And I am wrong

So where is my good luck when I need it the most?
Oh, God damn it
My mom's gonna kill me, though I tried my best

[CHORUS:]
Cause I had a bad day
My grades have gone down
I beg my teachers just to turn it around
I say I don't know
But I just can't lie
I paste on a smile and I stifle a sigh
I had a bad day
I've done what I like
It doesn't feel good to see my test this time
I had a bad day...
I had a bad day.

Had a bad day
Had a bad day
Had a bad day
Had a bad day
Had a bad day

I hope you liked it! Vote and leave a comment, I haven't heard this song much so I hope the pacing is accurate!

Thank you, Abbott Skelding! It's amazing that even though I'm not even an official parody author, and I'm just a young person writing parodies complaining about my classes, that almost everyone likes them. I never knew so many people liked hearing about my misfortunes! LOL
I'm glad you loved it! =)

Hmm... 111. Wonder who that could be? Actually, I know who it is- my mortal parody enemy who shall remain nameless.
