The Lyrics

Inspired by the fact that I just got my ACT results back!
Well, I found myself in lots of trouble
Just the other day, you see.
Took a test for college, ACT.
And though I'd studied real hard,
All the answers would not come to me.
Still I had to take it, ACT.
I've just got to pass it, ACT!

But suddenly my brain remembered
Something my teacher told me.
Most of these test answers are B or C
And sometimes G's or H's, so you still have a good chance, you see.
There will be an answer, B or C.
B or C, B or C, B or C, yeah, B or C
There will be an answer, B or C.

Well it could not hurt to try,
So I filled them in all B or C.
I'll still go to college, good for me.
I finish the test quickly, but I
Really start to wo-or-ry.
Will I go to college? God, help me!
God help me, God help me, God help me, God help me,
Pray I get a good score, God help me!
Thirty- three, thirty-three, thirty-three, thirty-three
Passed the test; I got a thirty-three!

Hey Michael! This explains a lot about recent elections.

I really enjoyed that one! 5's

I hated that darn thing. I bet I probably WOULD have done better by filling it in randomly. ;-)

Very good! I think tests assess, if you are smart test taker!

This was a solid parody i gave it all 4's... too bad you weren't as lucky with your opponent in the parody march madness as with your ACT's

I've written and posted two of my own parodies of "Let It Be", so I know how tricky this one can be, and I'm delighted to say that you nailed this one, Joelle - 555.

Good song, although I have to admit I don't really know. It seemed to go well with the original though.

I knew the song, but not the test. I need to write some S.A.T.-ire some day myself...just fill in the little ovals next to the 5s, do not make marks outside the ovals, and use a number 2 pencil.

Not bad. I've never taken the ACTs, but I remember the SATs, so I got the flavor of it.

Funny and informative. Well done.

Very nice! Yeah, I took both the ACT *and* SAT last year, so that I could submit whichever one I happened to do better on to colleges. Unfortunately, after correcting by the appropriate factor, the two scores *absolutely identical* :-). Hopefully you didn't actually guess randomly when you took it... 5/5/5

Man, I should have voted already. I really liked this one; you handled the song well. 5's. I gotta give this one a try at some point, it looks really fun to do.

I DID guess randomly on the math, neminem.

Joelle - Nice job...Well the parody contest entry got this the 'looks' it deserved. I missed it when you originally put it up. You score "555" on the "PAR's" (Paul A. Robinson) test here. I vaguely recall scoring 1240+ on the SAT's and thinking, so what the hell does that MEAN? Pretty sure "NOTHING" was the correct answer to that.

SERIOUSLY!!! Did u really just put B or C for all of the answers or just for the one's u guessd on? N got a 33? Bcuz Im going 2 get mad.
