The Lyrics

a dunce all my life
its been no fun to be me
somehow, my brain ain't too strong
a dunce, uninformed
i can't think none too speedy
and always, my reasoning's wrong

a dunce, maybe touched
being normal, i dream of
got a low IQ
something went askew
i don't know what to do

a dunce all my life
and cruel comments will hurt me
i've heard those comments before
a dunce, who knows nothing
my wits will desert me
i'm unaware of the score

a dunce, i must say
i'm so blind, i can't take it
a dummy, i know
and there's no way to fake it
a dunce all my life
its been no fun to be me

even if he wasn't a dunce, Stevie would STILL be unaware of the score - good one alvin - tight pacing - mapped perfectly onto the original - 555

Brilliant pacing and wordplay (thank goodness you resisted the temptation to make it a political rant, too): 5's all round!

Anybody who writes parodies as good as this is not a dunce, they're at least a savant. 5's
