The Lyrics

I'll be honest. I was working on this one for months, but mostly because it got to difficult. I got to the point where I just wanted to finish it. Therefore, this may go off on its own.
Wake up. It was quarter to three.
I planned to cut the grass
But I just really needed to sleep.

So then I went into the bathroom to wash my face.
But I can see that it is clean,
So I will wait a few days.

In my room, I put on what I always wear.
The same shirt and pair of pants
That I threw over my chair.

Well, I know that I should do some laundry soon,
And I will do it by noon
sometime later in June.

Feeling sick as I went into the kitchen.
I should ask my physician
About proper nutrition because...

I eat lots of sugar and meat.
I'll start a healthy diet
As soon as I lose sight of my feet.

Maybe I should start getting something done.
And maybe I should finish everything I begun.
But if I start doing everything that I shun,
Then tell me this son...
Where is all the fun?

chorus:
We are bizzarre...procrastination.
We don't get far...procrastination.
Won't fix my car...procrastination.
Or my guitar...procrastination.

My assignment. Turned it in at two.
But I didn't begin
Until the day it was due.

I got an F, and though it sounds kind of lame.
I never got around
to writing more than my name.

I don't rush to remember faces
at different places.
Don't know where the race is.

A time will come when I will remember
The people that moved in with me
Just last Decemember.

Mom and Dad always paid the bills.
Now I'm on my own,
But I just don't have the skills.

I would always push them off to the side
And then I usually lied,
Told them all that I had died.

It's kind of hard to pay the bills on time.
But is it really a crime
if I can't afford a dime?

I'll do my bills when I get my next pay.
That will prove to be hard,
since I skip everyday.

Chorus

What's to say about the incredible ways
I've been spending my days
Causing all of the delays.

But I...really try to finish, by and by.
But in the public eye,
I'm seen as a slow guy.

The best I can do is always done.
But when I don't finish
I have a little fun.

There's bound to be times I'll do my chores.
There's bound to be times I'll finish what
I once ignored.

Chorus

Brilliant work, though you could've probably gotten the chorus a bit more tightened up. But I suppose you'll do that later?
I should also go ahead and pimp my similarly-themed parody, Get My Homework Started, as I have a feeling you'd like it: http://www.amiright.com/parody/2000s/pink56.shtml

I'm an idiot. Neminem...I went to your song, and when I got there, I tried singing it to the lyrics of Youth of the Nation. I didn't know that your song was under a different song. However, under Pink's version, it was good! LOL
