The Lyrics

This just popped into my head last night, and I whipped it out during the break between my 8:00 chem and my 12:00 physics. Continuing my evergrowing set of songs about college, this one is about my initial fears and impressions of the workload at my Alma Mater. I don't think it'll really be this bad, but the song was too absolutely perfect not to parody this way. By the way, ITR stands for "Ineligible to Return," or if you ask the right person, "Invited to Retire," and sleep dep is short for sleep deprivation, one of the more common phrases you hear at Mudd.
What happened to me?
I've gotten A plusses so long now in this game.
Now I'm getting Ds
and maybe Fs and it is drivin' me insane.
And though I try to do the homework I'm given,
I'm don't know where I should begin.

I'm failing, I'm failing...
Now I'm in over my head, I don't get what's said,
Completely misread the text, now I'm dead.
And now I can see, how screwed you can be,
This complete sleep dep's beginning to get to me.

"It's none of my concern,"
say all the profs because the profs are really lame.
I guess you never heard -
I've met our teachers, they don't even know our names.
And if I had to ITR to leave this hell,
I'd say that sucks, but hey, oh well;

I'm failing, I'm failing...
Now I'm in over my head, I don't get what's said,
Completely misread the text, now I'm dead.
And now I can see, how screwed you can be,
This complete sleep dep's beginning to haunt me...

Happens every year, to the engineers.
I'm not awake enough to do this chem lab.
I'm in such disgrace,
Can't figure acid/base;
Didn't mean for it to blow up in my face!
Who said it was easy to do all of this physics?
Need to prank the guys who say it's easy to do this physics!

Now I'm in over my head, I don't get what's said,
Completely misread the text, now I'm dead.
And now I can see, how screwed you can be,
This complete sleep dep's beginning to get to me.

Over my head, don't get what's said.
Over my head, wish I was dead.
This sucks!

(ABC) Makes the grade, dude.

ABC Comp.--DKTOS, but read very well. Clever change in the song's themes to something you are acquainted with. 444.

I used to drink a few beers before writing to get inspiration. Now I find sleep deprivation works just as well, and it's much cheaper.

Really, Rick? I find sleep deprivation kills my parody output: the creativity is usually still there, but the short-term memory goes and I forget the good ideas. Rather like what's happening in the parody, in a way.

Good job, nem. Fave lines: "I'm in such disgrace / Can't figure acid/base / Didn't mean for it to blow up in my face!"

I tell ya - you young'ums are really giving me a musical education... nice parody!
neminem - May 07, 2004 - Report this comment
Hehe... Meriadoc, don't look at *me* for that... only currently popular songs I know are a. ones that I see parodies of here or elsewhere and b. songs I hear a capellaized. Hearing the original songs always comes later.

(ABC) DKTOS, so I will have to check the lyric site & mp3 files you posted later tonight before I can weigh in here.
Peregrin - May 07, 2004 - Report this comment
Ha! I dl'd the song, sat and listened and for the life of me could not match the lyrics to anything I was hearing. Then I started questioning my own sanity, as the people above had said nothing about pacing. Then I realised the dl was Fat Lip, not Over My Head, even though that's what the title said. Once I found the RIGHT song....good one!

Didn't know the original but found your link in the entry thread. The pacing seems perfect and the song is a very good match for the parody idea. Good stuff.
