The Lyrics

Part eight of my ongoing series. When we last left our "hero", he was distracted by yet another website instead of doing homework or studying. So he wonders: what would it be like if he became a slacker superhero instead? (Yes, I'm aware this is the idea from an Amanda Show sketch ...but, let's ignore that for now.) Original Song
Man, I’m just so done
I want this all to end
Been in school so long
Sometimes I just pretend...

Instead of studyin’
Read comic books, wish I could be-e-e...like them
The hero that you’d need
Corruption I’ll impede and all will love me
I won’t study!

Think I’m done with college
No need for assignments
I know it’s best!

You lost your dog, little boy?
I will go find Fluffy...
First, practice burping...I’ll go searching
Eventu’lly!

You’ll discover I'm not like the others
Do it my way, it will do you wonders! “What is your name?!”
Procrastinator!
Why do it now? I’ll just save it for later!

Done right away? You best call another
Call that Bruce Wayne if you wanted something done...but I’m great!
Procrastinator!
Not Superman, but I know that I’m better

When crime runs wild, I’ll go
And sort three years of past email...oh, well
Response time, not so quick
Test new deodorant
Instead of fighting...most won’t call me
But don’t worry!

Some evil guy is gonna destroy ya?
You’ll be just fine, it’s just paranoia, yeah! I’ll just wait...
Procrastinator!
Think I’ll just play Mrs. Pac Man or Frogger

Bomb will go off unless I can stop it?
It’s only May, must get Christmas shopping done! Time, I’ll save
Procrastinator!
Just run away, and you won’t be in danger

There’s a bear trap on your head?
I will be right there...
Once I train for this relay race
Starts this time next year
Scared to death, so much fright
Then they call for me
A comet headed for this town
I’ll help after Glee...

That’s what I’ll do
That sounds so cool
That’s what I’ll do!
I’m done with school!

My own comic book
Has got me dis-tracted

Maybe I could suggest an assignment
Get out of school with creative writing, OH! It’s so great!
“Procrastinator:
Could A Slacker Go Fight Crime As A Savior?”

Professor said I’ll get my diploma
A passing grade and I will get outta here! Just one page!
End of semester
I have three months to turn in this one paper

[Professor:] (Keep you up to task)
(You’ve been here far too long)
[Slacker:] Start right away, won’t wait any longer
Or I could play games and just not get it done, either way
Procrastinator
Why worry now? It is due in December

[Professor:] (This is not that hard)
(I want this all to end)
[Slacker:] What if I say I don’t write this paper?
‘Least not today, I’d much rather have some fun than get grades
Procrastinator
Why do it now? I’ll just save it for later

[Professor]
I will fail you
Your paper’s due
You sir, are through!

I know that I read and wrote my review but I guess my computer is a procrastinatior and said ehhhh I'll post it later. I liked this idea starting out but then it went away from the superhero topic and focused on a school topic and I wasn't a fan if the random change in topic. Overall good though

I was going to write a more in depth review but like for other parodies, I'll do it later.

(Artistry) This looks like a job for...the proper authorities! Love this parody, absolutely brilliant, all of it! 555 half-finished costume ideas!

I enjoyed this...seems to be not so much procrastination as much as ADD...it kinda also reminded me of that one Looney Tunes cartoon where little Ralphie daydreams in school. Kinda sophisticated, and its making me want to seek out your entire series.

(Artistry) Been following the saga for a lo time now and I love that you keep I t going. Like Aggy said, you're starting to venture into ADD-land, so be conscious of that. You veered a little away from the superhero concept, and I would've liked to see that idea pushed more. I love the line, " The Procrastinator! Why do it now? I’ll just save it for later!" Best superhero catch-phrase ever!
