The Lyrics

This is the 2nd song I've made about Otis' sad math skills...this time, with my favorite band ever...
I sit here in my headache,
Waiting on some teacher to come and to,
To save me from my own brain,
I blame dumbness,
Watch it now, the answer’s wrong

I am not too smart for this,
So I’ll, I’ll just add 24,
Like I always did when I was young,

Can I figure this out, I don’t know
Probably not, I could never before, I
Know I need to be quite thorough,
‘Cause I’m a dumbass,
Watch it now, teacher’s wrong

I’m burning through my ideas and my,
Pencils and my clues to what I should do when,
I don’t get it,
When I don’t get it,

And sometimes I close my eyes,
And think I see the answer there with me,
But I was wrong

They say that high honors, it ain’t worth it
I’m not gonna try right now,
And I won't give it a try,
Every once in a little while,

I sit here in my headache,
Waiting on some teacher to come and to,
To save me from my own brain,
I blame dumbness,
Watch it now, the answer’s wrong

I am not too smart for this,
So I’ll, I’ll just add 24,
Like I always did when I was young,
(I’ll just add some more, Like I always did)
When I was young

I said I’m not too smart for this,
I’m not too smart for this,

But more than I should ever know

Man, I'm glad I'm out of schoool, I took a bath in math, just to keep the Golden Rule!
