The Lyrics

This has been so weird lately... I've had a huge number of parody ideas, and they just keep stacking up because I can never figure out how to finish them. My ideas folder currently has about 70 text files - some almost finished, some just a title - and I was starting to wonder whether I lost my ability entirely. Then this popped into my head this morning after a particularly brutal chem test, floated around in the back of my mind all day, and I just sat down and wrote it. Took less than an hour all told. So this is basically a true story.Oh, a couple more Mudd things - Karukstis is the Frosh Chem prof; she's really not bad, I just dislike her class. CS60, on the other hand, is the most awesome class ever. Probably the only class I've ever seen where the prof got a *standing ovation* the last day. Without further ado:
I tried to think of the answers -
Just got me mad
I tried to think of the homework -
Examples that we've had

I tried to guess at the proper method
Or BS I could expound
But my head just started swimming
Don't want to talk about it right now

The questions, don't talk about
Your answers, don't talk about
How ya aced it, don't talk about
That test

I'm braindead
No answers in my head (my grade's really dead)
I'm braindead
No answers in my head (my grade's really dead)

Chem's got something about it
I just don't get that class
And sometimes I think Karukstis
Won't care if I don't pass

I didn't understand the ideas
Of 2 on through 13
I used to feel so clever
Now I'm longing just to get a D

The questions, don't talk about
Your answers, don't talk about
How ya aced it, don't talk about
That test

I'm braindead
No answers in my head (my grade's really dead)
I'm braindead
No answers in my head (my grade's really dead)
I'm braindead
No answers in my head (my grade's really dead)
I'm braindead
No answers in my head (my grade's really dead)

I really think I have a problem
I really didn't have a clue
Why did I think I knew it all?
Could I take another test?

'Cause everybody thinks that he didn't pass
Everybody thinks that he didn't pass
Everybody thinks that he didn't pass
Everybody thinks that he didn't pass

My grade's really dead
No answers in my head

I'm braindead
No answers in my head (my grade's really dead)
I'm braindead
No answers in my head (my grade's really dead)

The questions, don't talk about
Your answers, don't talk about
How ya aced it, don't talk about
That test

Let's talk about
The weekend, let's talk about
No homework, let's talk about
Getting wasted, let's talk about
The CS60
and all that

(ABC) I have to pass this one up, 'cus the version of the OS that I downloaded didn't really have any verses, just the same chorus over and over, so I couldn't follow this. :-( I did like what you did with that chorus tho'! :-)

To all the people who DKTOS: I put up a link to it on both e-related threads. Guess I'll just put one here too, in case that catches more peoples' eyes: http://www3.hmc.edu/~afield/No_Doubt_-_In_My_Head.mp3

nem - seems like a good job - 5's - Hey, the midi-file was all "choppy", it played maybe 2/3 of a line at a time and then stopped, skipped a bit and played another snippet...and so on. Still gave me enough of the flavor of the original to vote on yours.

I found this a good one, not sure how I feel about the original tho! I will have to give it some more listens!

I didn't know this No Doubt song, so thanx for the MP3. Your version matches up quite nicely. Fave lines: "I used to feel so clever / Now I'm longing just to get a D."

Second best Chem song in the batch

As always, thanks for the link, a fun read, and the feeling of DAMN I'm glad I'm not in school.
