The Lyrics

Original Song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z303phqbAuY&feature=fvw
I think my teachers gone mad
Assigned an essay, yeah
And if this paper don't pass
I can't graduate

I've got a paper to write
It's gonna take me all night
I've got a paper to write
But I don't care

Dad said it's all up to me
"So don't let me down" yeah
It's now going on three
I've got nothing down

I've got a paper to write
It's gonna take me all night
I've got a paper to write
But I don't care

It's not like something will go awry
I know there won't be
I know I shouldn't worry
So I will get to writing at five
In the morning
So now I'll play Halo 3

I think my mom will be sad
But it is OK, yeah
I'm writing to mom and dad
To pass time away, yeah

I've got a paper to write
I've wasted most of my time
I've got a paper to write
But I don't care

I don't know why I waste all my time
I ought to think twice
Before I do anything
I think now I am ready to write
But it's calling
Facebook is calling me

I think my dad would agree
That I let him down, yeah
My paper was empty
But my name was down

Oh, I had a paper to write
I wasted all of my time
I failed, cause I didn't write
And I don't care

I really don't care
I really don't care
I really don't care
I really don't care
I really don't care

You get an "A" for that one, as the 555 score shows...

SOTM Sorry I took so "long" to get back reading this again. But it was great!

Not too bad and it's nice to see you doing older works since most of your collection is from modern songs (Which is like opposite what I say about most Amirighters work lol)

That's kinda what I'm doing right now.

(SOTM) Interesting idea, but in execution it fell a little flat. Maybe it's the repeated choruses, maybe it's the OS' short lines that gave you little to work with, but this one seems a bit bland to me. Still some good lines and worthy of a 555.

I've got some songs to critique, I've got some songs to vote for. I've got some songs to listen to and I'm running late! This sounds like every paper I ever wrote.

I'll echo what bobpiecheese said, with emphasis on the "short lines to work with" part.

SOTM...the overall spirit of this one hit a little too close to home...except that instead of procrastinating when writing papers, I'm procrastinating when writing parodies for the Decathlon. I liked this!

Oh lord how I can relate to this, I am struggling to keep up with deadlines, though for me it's more work clashing with being sick a lot . . .but I can definitely relate. Great idea to, in my opinion, one of the best Beatles songs ever.

I procrastinate a lot, reminds me of an episode of Spongebob. 555

Oh, I can so relate. This could have been my anthem in high school, and college too. Thank goodness that was before Facebook; I never would've gotten anything done! Nice job!

(ABC) Finally got around to commenting on this...LOL..now, what was I going to write? Oh. wait, the phones ringing.............

See above--my opinion hasn't changed.

Good topic, well executed, rhyme matches to OS were awesome.

(ABC O & P) Great one... I procrastinated on voting/commenting for ABC until now

Excellent idea for this one, I can totally relate (especially for my voting this round!) Some very funny lines.
