The Lyrics

Now and then I slink away and shirk a lecture
Pike a tutorial, we’re trapped all day inside
Read those chapters in a night or three…
Or spend each moment online study-free?
I’ll party hard and take a break in mid-semester

It can get distracted, this inertia mind of laxness
Procrastination to the end
Essays unpenned
What, they announced our deadlines drawing hence?
During classes everyone attends
I’ll have to get my lazy ass up off the sofa…

Way past midnight, haven’t
Got through half!
Break these books out of their wrapping
And start madly drafting
I’ve got no time to read this stuff!
Write a thesis and arrange a class talk off-the-cuff

Class submission
For our group to show?
No-one lends me lecture textbooks
I’m a flaming goner!
Semester deadlines at my throat…
Now I must start studying my uni notes
Type, adjust and copy/paste, adduce new quotes
Steal the literati lines my tutor wrote

Class has ended, Inbox starts to climb
Soon overloaded
But one student grieving all those essays
That are still not done
How’m I supposed to give your grade?
Pleading victim for an extra day?
The lack of ‘interest’ that you show…
If I wait here any longer, it will double on your student loan!

But you didn't have to
Dock me marks!
On my keyboard tip-a-tapping
Until early morning
I really, really need this Pass
Look, the treatise in this paper
Is a D grade plus!

And you didn’t have to loop that ‘0’
I just spent like over sixty hours
Without slumber
That test, I crammed all week, you know
Campus monster party? I refused to go!

I studied!

(You blew it, yo.)

I studied!

(You were bloody tardy, buddy. No, no, no!)

I studied!

(You wrote too slow.)

I studied!

(Take the course in summer and reuse your notes!)

Those stupid notes
Hate those stupid notes
Those stupid notes
F*** study.

Thank you for bringing back memories of college and quarter deadlines. (I was on quarters, not semesters.) 5's.
