The Lyrics

I've never been one to keep a diary... if I were to try, I reckon it'd probably go something like this:

Dear Diary,
Now then, what do I say?
Dear Diary,
What happened today?
Well, I got up.. I worked a bit
Then I came home.. I guess that's it
Dear Diary,
So what else is there to say?

Dear Diary,
Yes, it's me again
Dear Diary,
Oh.. this is insane
Can't think of a damn thing to write
That isn't pointless, worthless shite
Dear Diary,
Whose idea was it to say:

Write it down, down (down, down, down)
(Down, down, down, down, down)
Write it down, down (down, down, down)
(Down, down, down, down, down)
Write it dow-ow-ow-own

Dear Diary,
Well, maybe I ought
Dear Diary,
Write my deepest thoughts
Sometimes I wake, sometimes I sleep
I guess my thoughts are not that deep
Dear Diary,
Think I should think deeper thoughts

Dear Diary,
So where should I begin?
Dear Diary,
Expiate my sin
I really hate to disappoint
But, Jeezus - what's the ****ing point?
Dear Diary,
Now you're goin' in the bin

Ah, the familiar lament of every writing teacher who's ever tried (unsuccessfully) to encourage her 7th graders to write in daily journals...

I used to keep a diary when I was a teenager. It was so much fun! But I haven't written one for awhile. Great parody! 5's!
