The Lyrics

Some teachers are strict about grammar...and then there is this guy. Original Song
[Mr. Martin]
I’m an English teacher, sit at my desk
Grading these essays with my red pen
Read this absurdity, it’s so unsightly
Plagiarizing things; that’s not their voice
What went through their mind to make that smart choice?
What are they hu-uff-ing? ‘Cause they’re failing everything

Won’t write things down, they sound so dumb
Misspelling things like “off” and “dust”
They disappoint. Boy, I’m not proud
Their mothers need to help them out
What hurts the most, when they mix up
words that just seem simple enough.
I taught them once, I don’t know how

they got so bad with this grammar, please can you
help me understand, dude? ‘Cause I’m flabbergasted.
I don’t know what I’m here for
Come on! But what’s most annoying-
kids write out a sentence...
and use the wrong type of “your”
Used the wrong type of “your”!

All these mistakes, they just blow my mind
Giving out more D’s than A’s tonight
One “too” means “al-l-so”. One is a number, bro!

And the word “there”, is kind of tough.
But that’s not an excuse enough.
One “there” means place, “they’re” means ‘they are’
And “their” just means that it’s not yours
It’s on the board, and they look up
Stare blankly, 'cause they’re just so dumb
It’s not that hard, I don’t know how...

They can be this bad with grammar. Angered!
“Then” means coming after, and “than” - a compar’son
Did you not know that before!?
Come on! Simple education
But my worst frustration
When you misuse the word “your”
Used the wrong type of “your”!
Used the wrong type of “your”!

Your!
You’re!
Your!
You’re!
Your!

[Angry parents]
What did you say to my daughter!? You sir,
Special kind of a**hole. You shouldn’t be snappin’
At someone who can’t use “your”
Martin, you’re just like a warden
It’s just kindergarten!
Who cares if they can’t use “your”?
Who cares if they can’t use “your”?
Who cares if they can’t use “your”?

Right you are. Every parent should examine "their" conscience. As Socrates should have said, "The ungrammatical life is not worth living." 5's.

I seriously doubt that strict Mr. Martin would have used the term bro' which should be capitalized as Bro' and using an apostrophe to make it short for ethnic African "Brother."
Patrick - September 12, 2013 - Report this comment
"Their" is very commonly used where I live to replace the awkward "his or her", now that "he" or "his" have been abolished as a collective pronoun in the interests of political correctness. Wonder what the "Bro's" would think the word "Denigrate" meant if they saw it in print.

Patrick, there you go again! First you write that low-info Lefties (I wonder who they can be) do not know what "malefactor" means. Now you imply that the Bro's wouldn't know what "denigrate" meant if they saw it in print. You amaze me. Don't you know that a Bro' can't read?

Sic 'im, Rover!

I'm on the fence with this one Abbott. On the one hand I think it's very funny and I like the topic a lot. On the other hand, the pacing was very sketchy throughout, surprising so. Idk, maybe a little more polish was needed.

(SOTM) I get what you were doing with this, but it could have been stronger. The central concept of the grammatically wrong homophones was really hard to convey due to the pace of the tune, I think. And when you tried to force certain words into the parody for the sake of the pacing, like "al-l-so" and "com'parson", it ended up rather clunky.

(SOTM) The pacing was a bit off in places, but otherwise this was really frickin' good. Nice twist. 555!

You're parody is really good! Your good at writing parodies but this one did have a few pacing issues. Overall good work though.

(SOTM) See Above^^^ still think it's hilarious, just darn hard to follow with the pacing being pretty skewed.
