The Lyrics

these ABCs....complexities
i was lost my kindergarten...no first grade
they let me in...my head a-spin
i was lost by kindergarten...i'm afraid

though all my friends...advanced, you see
this kindergarten's...too much for me
so here i'll be...eternally
i was lost by kindergarten...no first grade

its not the norm...no brave wave storm
all i did was shy away and misbehave
inside my head...thought process dead
i was lost by kindergarten...progress waived

i can't think....a dunce all round
not in the know...a clod, profound
what's wrong with me ?...why can't i see ?
i was lost by kindergarten...no first grade

when in doubt...i flail about
its boring...its leisure that i crave
(some would say i was depraved)
there's no joy...where teachers are employed
growing....unhappy in my state
(crappy is my state)

i would be...more happy being free
no darn school...to tell me what to do
just let me be...in apathy
i was lost by kindergarten...its true
i was lost by kindergarten...its true
i was lost by kindergarten...its true

Hey, Alvin...Welcome back, Man! where ya' been, to the moon? This is a terrific returning parody, both funny and sad...I'm sure many can relate...In my day, we never had kindergarten...right to the first grade..but I still recall the trauma and drama...So good to see your byline, again...you're one of the main spokes in this Amiright wheel

That was great! I have more time than you so where is mine? lol. Darn, you got your inspiration back before I did. I can kind of relate, but I had no kindergarten either. 1st grade was the same. 5's

Welcome back, Alvin! Great job here, great to see you back, and kindergarten was hell for me, I got made fun of and got my face pushed into the sandbox a lot. :D 5s.

Nice to see you back, friend! :) We missed you lots! I had good and bad experiences in kindergarten...even preschool. I kept on crying about missing my parents and felt lonely. Great to see you on the boards again. Counting by 5's for this one!

I missed you! That is a great parody about kindergarten - such a waste of time in limbo. Let's hope there wil be no retirement homes for us.

Great to see the return of an Amiright legend! 5's. But what in the world is TSB's problem with Alvin Rodes all about?

Hey alvin, just dropped by to look at one of someone else's old parodies and happened to see you had a recent post. This one is really clever. Maybe no "first grade", but certainly "first rate". 5's, of course ~ ~ ~
