The Lyrics

This describes what my class was like back in my heyday in primary school!
Teacher has some pupils in the new classroom
Simon is the bad boy in the class
Teacher says to Simon "Where is your homework?"
And Simon says this as he looks around the gloom

A-B-C, 1-2-3 what a dumb class!
Lala what stupid class!
A-B-C, 1-2-3 what a dumb class!
Lala what stupid class!

Teacher gives a topic for his class to draw
"Draw your favourite place on holiday! (Day!)
Simon draws a picture which is so obscene
And Teacher says to Simon "You have no more play!"

A-B-C, 1-2-3 what a dumb class!
Lala what stupid class!
A-B-C, 1-2-3 what a dumb class!
Lala what stupid class!

In a couple of weeks he has been in detention!
With a couple of kids laughing in their face
Of Teacher And Simple Simes! (Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha)

Dimmy as always in the school classroom
Teacher lets the pupils play a game
Simon pulls a strop and gives a little fume
And during lunchtime he still takes the blame

Yah, A-B-C, 1-2-3 what a dumb class!
Lala what stupid class!
A-B-C, 1-2-3 what a dumb class!
Lala what stupid class!

In a couple of weeks he has been in detention!
With a couple of kids laughing in their face
Of Teacher And Simple Simes! (Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha)

Silly as always in the school classroom
Teacher lets the pupils leave for home!
Simon pulls a frown and hums a little tune
And during hometime he still begins to moan!

Yah, A-B-C, 1-2-3 what a dumb class!
Lala what stupid class!
A-B-C, 1-2-3 what a dumb class!
Lala what stupid class!

And if you want some fun
say A-B-C-2-3!
(NOTE) Simon wasn't actually someone in my class. It was someone else but I changed his name to Simon just in case he reads this!

I don't know what "pulls a strop" means...must be a UK thing. :) Why don't you enter the Amiright Idol competition? See http://www.inthe00s.com/index.php?topic=32272.0 for more details!

Thanks Agri! To pull a strop means to get in a temper.

Good morning, class - class - class - SHUT UP! Thank you.

Good one Jason.

Agri : Not sure where Jason is from. In Australia, to be 'stroppy' means to be in a mild bad mood, and to be letting people know it...
Peregrin - May 08, 2008 - Report this comment
Whoops, had I read past Agri's comment I would have seen Jason had already replied ! Glad to see that our answers were relatively similar. Sorry I didn't see it Jason.

Thanks 2Eagle and Peregrin. Peregrin I have acknowledged your apology. Most appreciated.

Ive just realised the lines that read 'La la what stupid class' should read as 'La la What A stupid class' Don't know how that happened but i thought i'd let you know here.

(SOTM) Simple but effective school parody.
Below Average Dave - June 09, 2008 - Report this comment
(SOTM) The past few months Jason, you had me worried that perhaps you were going the wrong direction in your writing, however you righted the ship here. Despite getting repetitive a bit, you improved your comedy here over you previous month's entry dramatically. In fact, I think this is probably the best of your SOTM entries so far this year. Some of your lines didn't quite work out in my mind, but this is a great improvement for you Jason, and I applaud you taking on a complete song--hope you keep in that direction with song choices and topics.

This wasn't bad I agree pretty much with Agrimorfee this was a pretty simple and effective school parody, a somewhat difficult song to parody, at least as far as the Beatles go, so good job on this.

Thanks Agri, BA Dave and Matthias.

Catchy OS, in my mind, but I'm not sure why the original, if it was original, "lala" was kept in the refrain. I'm not sure of a suitable replacement, but it just seems out of place to me. I also echo Dave regarding the repetitiveness, but I kind of liked the idea. I think we've all known a Simon in our day.

Now that's classless
Peter Andersson - June 23, 2008 - Report this comment
There's a little story in this one, that's always a bonus because setting out to write that immediatelly makes it a little harder compared to say list parodies etc.

(SOTM-MAY-08)

As Kelly Bundy would say - "It's as simple as A, B, 3. I can relate to this because I was "Simon" in grammar school. I would start the year off by taking the seat in the last row which was furthest from the techer's desk. Within two days I was front and center in front of her desk. (I had all female teachers from grades 1 - 6). The 6th grade teacher did one better. You'd think I'd learn being right in front of her face. She had one more move for me and that was under her desk until I drew faces on her shoes. Needless to say the principal was not pleased in the least with me and found no humor in that. I went to school when they thought ADHD was a pesticide. I klie this parody. I had this overwhelming compulsion to be the class clown and for that reason I was never considered bad - just somewhat problemsome. I still bore easily and my attention span is extremely short on anything that does not interest me or that I find boring or I already know the subject quite well or I am sure I could figure it out on my own which is mostly the case with technical isues that require me to learn. You don't have to have ADHD to write parody, but it surely helps.

(SOTM) As others have said, simple but effective. Just needed a smidge more funny.
Red Ant - June 29, 2008 - Report this comment
I can see how the idea came to you Jason. This was pretty good, and not varying the chorus worked because you tied each verse into it. Well told story. 5s
Phil Alexander - June 30, 2008 - Report this comment
To be a bit pernickety on the rhyming front: the original rhymes the first and third lines on each verse, too... I did this OS a couple of months ago, and know that it's trickier than it seems to get right - it's a good write, but could be better, IMO. (Don't I feel like a teacher giving a report, now?)

Not bad, I do like story parodies. Not quite as funny as some of the others in the contest, but I enjoyed reading it.
Invisible Boy - June 30, 2008 - Report this comment
Good effort here Jason. You tell a good story. Be careful with some of the rhymes, especially at the beginning when you are trying to draw the reader in.
