The Lyrics

Shania's 5th North American single off of the Up! album
I'm just the teacher that teaches the class
You're just the student that didn't pass
But don't blame me

I'm not surprised that you're as angry as hell
But there's no one to blame except yourself
It's offensive you know
And it hurts me so...

But it only hurts when I'm teaching
My voice is only horse if I'm screeching
I'll only be fired if I'm breeching
So, I clear my throat
Begin to gloat

Don't think I'm lying and I'm a-wanting sympathy
I'm telling the truth, but it don't set me free
The pain's still there
But I don't care...


It only hurts when I teach...

No, it still hurts
But mark my words...


(It only hurts) Hurts when I'm teaching
(My voice is only horse) Only horse if I'm screeching
(I'll only be fired) Fired if I'm breeching

It only hurts when I teach...

Is this about the same teacher as the other parody, a sort of point-counterpoint?

The song is about a student who fails and takes it out on the teacher. The teacher (who's a nerd by the way) becomes upset and is hurt by the student's comments. But, like the song says, it only hurts while he's teaching. It can be about any teacher in the world, because everyone can relate to having a mean teacher that they really hate. The song is dedicated to any mean, nasty teacher you've ever known, Mari.

This is just one of many parodies that have been written regarding Shania Twain songs. The author of this parody appreciates the feedback and comments of those who read it. We are not, in any way encouraging you to vote for this song, but rather to send feedback and your opinions on it. Your opinions would be taken under considoration and we will do our best to answer any questions you may have. By this weekend, we hope to be able to submit a list that would reveal the parody titles of Shania's 19 tracks off the Up! album. This takes time, and therefor, could take longer. About half of the songs have been submitted to this website to date, but they will not all fit on the Shania parody homepage, so to view the rest, you can simply click on the link that reads "Other Shania Twain Song Parodies" and viewing all parodies written by Chris. Again, your opinion is valid.
