The Lyrics

Me and some friends are working on a cd of parodies revolving around my school (www.hmc.edu, for the curious), and this will probably be on it... Jonathon and Prof Townsend, if for some reason you happen to see this: I only used your names because I couldn't think of original ones, and yours happened to fit the syllabic structure perfectly. I'm not trying to insult either of you.
Ah, look at all the sleeping people
Ah, look at all the sleeping people

Jonathon Baeal picks up the notes in
the classroom where physics will be,
Then goes to sleep.
Waits for 9:50, wearing a face
like he's been doing homework all night,
Not a good sight.

All the tired people
Asleep in the back row.
All the tired people,
Why do they even go?

Professor Townsend, writing the words of
a lecture that's over our heads,
Cause we're all dead.
Look at him talking, blabbering on
in his class as if somebody cares;
Our brains aren't there.

All the sleeping people
Where do they all come from?
All the sleeping people
Why do they even come?

Ah, look at all the sleeping people
Ah, look at all the sleeping people

Jonathon Baeal died on his quiz and was
buried along with his grade,
Who is to blame?
Professor Townsend, giving his lectures
so boring that no-one's awake,
makes physics lame.

All the tired people
Asleep in the back row.
All the tired people,
Why do they even go?

Excellent ! Your parody brings back memories to this ol' M.I.T. dropout. I clearly remember going to my calculus class after probably staying up way too late the night before doing who knows what, and I felt a bit drowsy. So I smugly thought, "Ha! A couple of No-Doz oughta do the trick! " So I pounded down 200 mg of pure caffeine, sat down, and promptly fell asleep!

Hey neminem - you were kind enough to read, vote, and comment on my recent parody of Simon and Garfunkel’s “I Am A Rock” called “Leonard Played Spock”, so I’m inviting you to come on over and check out my new parody of “I Am A Rock” called “I Am A Chalk”:

Nem, if you can land a copy of "The Beatles Anthology" 2, there is a recording of just the strings from "Eleanor Rigby". You can experiment with adding this parody and your vocal to it. Put it on Soundclick, so I get an idea of how you sing.

(ABC-A) For some unknown reason I almost lost it laughing at this line:

Jonathon Baeal died on his quiz and was
buried along with his grade,

This would have been perfect for the Z round.

(ABC) I got a chuckle out of the same lines as Guy did. Hope it didn't wake you. :)

(ABC05) Good tune, especially in keeping the OS structure of two different characters' perspectives.

(abc) I used to love Physics lectures - you just don't get that quality sleep anywhere else - and I loved "buried along with his grade"

(ABC) I dropped physics from my schedule a couple of weeks ago, and thank goodness that I did!

I remember having a biology lecturer who could send a hyperactive caffeine addict to sleep: one lecture I sat at the back thinking I'd be able to catch a nap undetected... but the head of department came and sat next to me. About half way through the lecture, I noticed that he'd nodded off :-) Enjoyed the parody, neminem.

as one who hails from the other side of this situation... I really enjoyed this one.... as the others said .. buried along with his grade is a classic line!!
