The Lyrics

I'm sitting in my room and thinking
How much this situation is stinking
Got some boring cosine graphs, an essay about Roman chaps
A lab about an atom's mass, and they are all due on my next class
Holy cow
I have so much
Homework now
No more TV at all now
No playing basketball now
No, can't afford to stall now
My this is boring

Every day work comes anew
Pythagoras and DBQ's
And I must work diligently, to show the universities
So that a good one will take me, or I'll end up at Mickey D's
Holy cow
I have so much
Homework now
No more TV at all now
No playing basketball now
No, can't afford to stall now
My this is boring

Today I threw my poor back out
From lugging my books about
But all my teachers still insist that work and class I cannot miss
So I must somehow do this although my pain I can't dismiss
Holy cow
I have so much
Homework now
No more TV at all now
No playing basketball now
No, can't afford to stall now
My this is boring
My this is boring

Perfecto! And another Paul Simon line, "When I think back on all the crap I learned in high school, it's a wonder I can think at all!" never sounded truer.

Luv it! Even though I'm not native English and have no idea what a DBQ is.

a dbq is a document based question - they give you something to read and comment on based what you learned - at least thats what i think it was 10th grade was 5 years ago

Well Ethan, I didn't see this. I'm actually afraid to look now before I post, because of what I find. I'm glad yours was quite different. Now I realize that it's a good excuse for a plug. so here it is. PLUG PLUG PLUG!
