The Lyrics

As ever, enjoy. Here is a link to the official music video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iC-_lVzdiFE
Last assignment of the year,
There are several topics here.
Do not know where to begin,
I just want to get stuck in.
First assignment of the year,
There are several topics here.
Do not know where to begin,
Do not know when it's due in.

Tell my mum,
I need to know about Watergate.
I must start outlining.
It was the 70s then...

Asked my mum
To tell me about Watergate.
I must start outlining.
It was the 70s then...
Asked my mum
To tell me about Watergate.
I must start outlining.
At least they didn't elect Nixon again.

This is a hard question to do,
I've just cut out photos, where's the glue?
Can't keep up with these demands,
I'm going to have to sit exams.
Now what did the teacher say?
“To pass, you'll have to get an A.”
There are blister's on my thumbs,
But they are only small ones.

Spoke to Mum,
Now I'm learning about Watergate.
I am writing,
Hope I'll never get bad grades again.

Spoke to Mum,
Now I'm learning about Watergate.
I am writing,
Hope I'll never get bad grades again.

Spoke to Mum,
Now I'm learning about Watergate.
I am writing,
Hope I'll never get bad grades again.

When I get back, I must Google that,
I think it's a good website I've found.
Don't have time to eat, don't have time to sleep,
Got to make sure I get high grades.

Writing again,
Writing about Watergate.
I am trying,
And I will never have to ask again.
Writing again,
Writing about Watergate.

Onto the exam,
My exam on Watergate.
I'm revising,
And I'll never get stuck again.
Onto the exam,
My exam on Watergate.
I'm revising,
And I'll never get stuck again.

In the exam,
and I am writing.
Watergate,
Watergate,
I'll never have to revise you again.

Whilst trying to come up with a rhyme for the phrase 'Say my name', in my head it morphed into the popular Destiny's Child track. I just had to get angry at Destiny's Child. Here is the clip: http://audioboo.fm/boos/1383847-florence-and-the-machine-spectrum-parody-behind-the-scenes
