The Lyrics

Original Song:
Second year of high school, in sophomore math
My classmates think I’m nerdy, so very egg-head
And now it is exam day, I know just what to do
I’m the only one who studied and my grade is proof
Those guys who play football each got 42
I got the perfect grade, think they’d get the clue

I stayed up all night, studied till I hurl
Reading about algebra, good grades- they are my world
They stayed out all night, don’t care ‘bout their grades
So now I get to say I was the one that got an A
The one that got an A

Got stuffed in a locker right after class
Seven kids who got D minus, and they all laughed
It wouldn’t be an issue, except the teachers helped, whoa!

Someone broke my glasses, know what to do
Just fix with tape, they’re as good as new
With my pocket protector, suspenders, bow tie too…

Cause studying’s my life, love it like a girl
Love all of the sciences, the history of the world
I study all night, can’t get a bad grade
I study so I say I was the one that got an A
No one else got an A

No one
No one
No one
No one else got an A

I’m already building my own time machine, (whoa!)
And then I’d go back to Germany, (oh)
These tests will lead to what I’ve always dreamed, (whoa)
To work with Al Einstein

I stay up all night, writing what I’ve learned
Books stacked up like pyramids, this grade won’t go unearned
I’ve won the Nobel Prize, fifth since I was eight
For this test I can say I was the one that got an A
The one that got an A

The one
The one
The one

Finally get my prize, teacher comes my way
Then he hands me my grade, and then I had to look away…
B-minus was my grade…

First time I heard this OS. It's alright. It's not as good as say "I Kissed A Girl" or "Hot N Cold" but it was alright. As for your parody it was pretty hilarious! Great stuff here dude.

Maybe you will earn a Rhodes scholarship and become President of the US.

I parodied this song, too... but yours was definitely enjoyable (not to mention funny)! Especially liked the punchline. 5/5/5.
