The Lyrics

Now I will tell you what I've done in school
Fifty thousand tests I've tried,
Essays were okay and portrayals too
But I still don't write well
(Failing English)
Don't want your tutoring, I'll help myself
Pass a spelling test for once
Now littered with finals and mid-terms to boot
Just when I thought I'd go to college
I'm flunking again

I'm failing English
Drowning in words
I'm upstaged by freshmen
It's so absurd, oh
I'm failing English

People harass me
Surpass me by far
'Cause I don't pass my tests
('Cause I don't pass my tests a whole lot)
Always confusing, I space off instead
So all my grades are hitting the floor
I'm flunking again

I'm failing English
Drowning in words
I'll be here forever
Got to leave

So go on and teach
Teach to me
The proper way
To read and write, so I can
I can't keep failing English

I'm flunking again
Still failing English
That's what I'm told
I've been here forever
I'm 30 years old
I'm still failing English

This was pretty good. Were you actually struggling in English? If so, I do parodies that irritate the crap out of me as well. This was pretty good.

Thanks, all. KaviR...why don't you just leave my phone number, address, homeroom and blood type in your comments? Sure would make it a lot easier for those internet stalkers. I AM NOT FAILING ENGLISH. *seethes*

I agree! KaviR, could you please pass on that sensitive information to me, it would make my job stalking EmiLoca SO much easier! ;) Great parody, I can associate because I used to top the year doing absolutely no study, but over the years everyone's improved while I've just sat on natural talent and now they've all overtaken me. PS. KaviR- caviar I get it now! Duhoik! 555 (if you're also failing maths, that's 100%)
EmiLoca - May 14, 2004 - Report this comment
Now that's weird...I thought I was stalking you! Same here on the English deal. Relying on talent is just so much easier than actually working. KaviR is a rather loud friend of mine from school, and she can back me up on that one (assuming that she HAS TALENT). I love making you mad, Kavz.

And that, my friends, is what I call desperation. Don't you dare IM her, or email her, or...think about her...please. She knows too much about me, and I've got enough stalkers as it is (she happens to be one of them). Oh, Mikaela! I forgot that you're right here.
Mikaela - June 04, 2004 - Report this comment

We fear the opening of our mouths in case we vomit from the thought of Tibbygirl being an active member of the US education system.
Tibbygirl - June 23, 2004 - Report this comment
It's the shocking truth, I'm afraid.

You know, if AmIRight ever did a live concert, you should do this song with Ten Second Braeden. 555s as usual.
