The Lyrics

I've been writing this for over a week, and finally, here it is.
Student:
I just won't lose my shot!
I won't just lose my shot!
Oh well, when I'm doing nothing
I'm still going to study
I won't throw away this shot!

I'm going to get a scholarship
Almost reached college
I know I shouldn't brag, but yeah, I'm amazed and astonished
The problem is I have homework I can't finish
I gotta say I need help
In each class, I gained knowledge!

These classes are kind of rough
There are things I need to know
Trying to reach my goal
My exam in math: it's impossible!
Just an hour, but it sure feels longer
These Anaheim streets feel warmer
I ponder

It's a burden, I need an advantage
I will learn to manage
I won't need Google for Spanish
I walk through school panicked
My plan is to get through school with an A
But hey, the year's almost done
So let me get to the next grade
I am an-

Student/Senior/Teacher/Classmate:
E-L, E-V, E-N, T-H grader
It's where I'm supposed to be

Student:
A person who works independently
Meanwhile, students keep bothering me constantly
Possibly, I'll move on regardless, see?
Turning this year around
Doing it carefully
I won't let my assignments get past me
I have my friends beside me at this school, you see
I'm entering!

Senior/Teacher/Classmate:
He says in parentheses

Student:
Don't be shocked when I graduate with my degree
I will move on with my life and get a job, you see
Eventually, I'll be working successfully

I just won't lose my shot!
(Classmate: My shot!)
I won't just lose my shot!
(Classmate: My shot!)
Oh well, when I'm doing nothing
I'm still going to study
I won't throw away this shot!
(Classmate: I won't throw away this shot!)

Student/Senior/Teacher/Classmate:
I just won't lose my shot!
I won't just lose my shot!
Oh well, when I'm doing nothing
I'm still going to study
I won't throw away this shot!
I will give it a shot!

Senior:
I go to school where I get out before 3
Got on the bus and then, I arrive at home at 3
Library, library?
I study at the library
When I type, you won't find me panicking for this

Student/Senior/Teacher/Classmate:
Shot!

Classmate:
Hey, I'm a teacher's assistant
And I help out the teacher when she's taking attendance
I'm joining the conversation 'cause I know it's my chance to finally advance
Instead of letting time pass, I'll give it a

Student/Senior/Teacher/Classmate:
Shot!

Teacher:
But you'll never pass successfully
Unless you keep studying everyday, you see
Every night, do not lie
Just keep on studying
No hurrying, just take your time and
Finish it, it's your only

Student/Senior/Teacher/Classmate:
Shot!

Principal:
Gentlemen, lower your voices
Just stay out of trouble and make careful choices
I'm with you, but the situation is fraught
You got to be carefully taught
If you cheat, you're gonna get caught!

Student:
Hey, check what we got
Our teacher is the best and works very hard
I think that school is hard
Honestly, I like it a lot
Let's make a plan faster than the hands on a clock...
What are the odds that they would put us all in one spot?
To work with the squad and share conventional wisdom, like it or not
A bunch of extraordinary and exemplary honored students?
Give me the instruction
Tell me where my education is!

Oh, am I working too hard?
This year has got me excited
I wait for my report card
I have never been this far before
I promise that I'll make you proud

Teacher:
Let's get this guy in front of a crowd

Student/Senior/Teacher/Classmate/Crowd:
I just won't lose my shot!
I won't just lose my shot!
Oh well, when I'm doing nothing
I'm still going to study
I won't throw away this shot!

I just won't lose my shot!
I won't just lose my shot!
Oh well, when I'm doing nothing
I'm still going to study
I won't throw away this shot!

Teacher:
Everybody say, whoa whoa whoa...
(Student/Classmate/Senior: Whoa whoa whoa...)
Hey!
Whoa!
Wooh!
(Student/Classmate/Senior: Whoa!)
Whoa!
Yeah, let them hear you!
(Student/Classmate/Senior: Whoa, yeah!)

Let's go
(Company: Whoa whoa whoa...)
I said, work until the day's done!
(Company: Whoa whoa!)
Said, till the day's done!
Come on!
(Company: Yeah!)
Let's go, come on!

Rise up!
When you're studying everyday, you'll rise up
Tell your brother to help you keep your grades up
Tell your sister to help you keep your grades up

Teacher/Ensemble:
When are these students going to have their grades up?
(Company: Whoa whoa whoa!)
When are these students going to have their grades up?
(Company: Whoa whoa!)
When are these students going to have their grades up?
(Company: Grades up!)
When are these students going to have their grades up?
Grades up!

Student:
I've been studying so much, it's not even hard for me
I've been busy revising
Before class? No, I was doing it last night
If it's still incomplete, do I lie or let it be?
Does it matter if I let an assignment pass me?
See, I never thought I'd get through ninth grade
Where I go to, some fail tests constantly
Ask anybody why we're working fast and we laugh, ready to pass
We have to make this moment last, we're ready

Scratch that
Make most of this moment, it's a movement
Where all the busiest brothers that passed school went?
Foes oppose us, we'll take an honest stand
We'll help those around us, giving everyone a hand
And? If we leave as graduates?
Will we leave our legacy for our descendants?
Or will the school we leave begin an endless cycle of homework and tests without any questions?
I know, almost graduating is exciting
But Jesus, I'm busy writing and reading
I've been working much harder
We need to handle our academic situation
Did we just come here to stay?
What's the state of our education?
I'm here patiently waiting
I'm successfully finishing every assignment and every project is done and completed!
I'm laughing in the face of detentions and sorrow
For the first time, I'm ready for tomorrow

Student/Company:
And I just won't lose my shot!
I won't just lose my shot!
Oh well, when I'm doing nothing
I'm still going to study
I won't throw away this shot!
(Ensemble: Not throwing away this shot!)

Student/Senior/Teacher/Classmate:
We'll get our grades up! We'll give it a shot!
(Ensemble: Not throwing away this shot!)
We'll get our grades up! We'll give it a shot!
(Ensemble: We'll get our...)
We'll get our-
(Ensemble: Grades up, grades up!)

Student:
We'll give it a shot!
(Ensemble: Grades up, grades up!)

(Ensemble: Grades up, grades up!)
Student/Senior/Teacher/Classmate:
We'll give it a shot!
(Ensemble: Gray gray gray...)
We'll give it a shot!
(Ensemble: We'll give it a shot! We'll give it a shot!)
Take a shot, shot!
(Ensemble: And I won't-)
Shot!
Ayo, it's time to get your shot!
Time to get your shot!
And I won't-

Student/Senior/Teacher/Classmate:
Just throw away this-

Company:
Won't throw away this shot!
This is probably the hardest song I've ever written. Also, this isn't based from my life at school. I'm in eleventh grade, however. Let me know what I should make my next parody about.
