The Lyrics

Today (September 20) marks my 1-year anniversary of writing parodies for this website. And how do I celebrate? By writing a Bee Gees parody, of course, just as I did 1 year ago (dig it). I used to hate math, until I made a discovery a few months ago: I don't hate math, I hate algebra. I mean, usually, I do a problem the best I can, following the directions, and I get it wrong. Why? Because the logic in algebra is SO messed up. To that I say: WHADAFXUP?!?!?!??!?!?!?!? I hate algebra so much that if it were a person, I'd blow its brains out with a .500 Magnum. But since that's impossible, I wrote this parody instead. Enjoy. I know the original song is well-known, but for those who don't know it...
Listen to me, guys,
There’s a subject I despise,
It’s got really weird logic,
And I can’t dig it.

I am tryin’ so hard,
‘Till my pencil is charred,
Whoever invented this
Was a bigot.

And I’m tryin’ so hard, but
It’s wreckin’ my mind.
I wish I had help from Bob Dole.

And its weird, foreign logic
Is so dang misaligned.

Yeah, I hate algebra, algebra,
Don’t know how to do it.
Hey I hate algebra, algebra,
So tough to go through it.

Here I am,
Doin’ math that’s kickin’ my ass.
I’m usin’ all of my brain’s might,
So hard to win,
Why’s it a fight?

Algebra, algebra,
Don’t know how to do it.
Hey I hate algebra, algebra,
So tough to go through it.

With this stupid subject,
I need much help for me to make it.
Gimme lots of help
So I won’t soon be mournin’.

Got a pencil in my hand,
Calculator in the other,
And this grueling subject should
Come with a warning.

And I’m tryin’ so hard, but
It’s wreckin’ my mind.
I wish I had help from Bob Dole.

And its weird, foreign logic
Is so dang misaligned.

Yeah, I hate algebra, algebra,
Don’t know how to do it.
Hey I hate algebra, algebra,
So tough to go through it.

Here I am,
Doin’ math that’s kickin’ my ass.
I’m usin’ all of my brain’s might,
So hard to win,
Why’s it a fight?

Algebra, algebra,
Don’t know how to do it.
Hey I hate algebra, algebra,
So tough to go through it.

Yeah, I hate algebra, algebra,
Don’t know how to do it.
Hey I hate algebra, algebra,
So tough to go through it.

Yeah, I hate algebra, algebra,
Don’t know how to do it…
In memory of Andy Gibb (1958-1988) & Maurice Gibb (1949-2003).


Here's to another year of kickin' ass & writin' parodies...and I'm not out of parody ideas!

Hey Dylan, this is your #1 fan, Andria Kilgore. I want you to know that you did a great job writing this parody, as always and that I hate algebra as much as you do or more so despite having graduated from high school in 1998 and not continuing my education. Here are 455 calculators to help you out.

x + y=555, where x=funny and y=pacing near perfect.

I last did algebra in 1986, Lionel, which I guess was before you were even born! Nice work here, and extra kudos for choosing a Bee Gees disco song, as they're notoriously difficult to pace well. 555x+y
