The Lyrics

I overheard my 3rd grade teacher, singing this parody about me :-))
You take naps in the rest room
That it's for resting is what you thought
And you keep hitting those pool balls with one eye
Your "eye cue" don't work so hot
You spent 4 years in the 3rd grade
But it seems to be for naught
And all the girls are glad they're not your teacher
They're not your teacher, 'cos

You're no brain
The movie Forrest Gump was about you
You're no brain
You'll never know this song is about you
No clue...no clue

Your folks had several kids although
Not one of them's quite so dumb
We know that your cranium is pretty bare
When walking you can't chew gum
And they say you can't count up to ten
While sucking your left thumb

Ah, yes it seems...you've got toys in the attic
Toys in the attic, 'cos
You're no brain
You'll never know we're talking about you
You're no brain
Remember when you're walking please don't chew
Don't chew...don't chew

They passed out brains...you were locked in the closet
Locked in the closet, 'cos

You're no brain
You've never given reason to doubt you
You're no brain
I never picture 'dumb' now without you
No clue...no clue

Well, I heard you went and took an I.Q. test
And you scored, naturally, 1
And if brains were cash, you would be dead broke at best
In fact you just might be owing us some
You wear your left shoe on the right
Your right shoe on the left
That might explain why...that you walk like a pidgeon
Walk like a pidgeon, and...

You're no brain
You'll never know this song is about you
You're no brain
I'll never think of dumb now without you
Yes you! No clue! Don't chew!

You're no brain
I think that Forrest Gump was about you
You're no brain
Your life ambition...to be a gum shoe
You're no brain
You're trailing Juicy Fruit there behind you
You're no brain
I bet you're glad this song is about through
Aren't you? Aren't you? Aren't you???

And why does Dee take naps in the boys room? Because he knows that smokin' ain't allowed in school! Alvin: "Brill-aint"? I've heard of a Freudian slip, but it's not often we see a Freudian typo!

This was really funny, Dee...AND...it reminds me (I hear the groans now...lol)...I had a Teacher in the 11th Grade (English Lit.) who made up names for everybody instead of their real names...the guy next to me was the smartest guy in the class...name was "Mike Rancer"...teacher called him "Rancid"...and he called me "Next to Genius"...since I sat next to the Smartest Guy in the Class...lol...I wish I could remember exactly what he called some of the girls in the class...all I remember is that is was all very hysterical in the context of 16 year old high-school students back in 1966-67...OH...5's for you, of course ~ ~ ~

great stuff Dee, and the way you twisted the OS's line into "And you scored, naturally, 1" showed the touch of a master - 555
