The Lyrics

Translations for the spanish verses are in the bottom comments. They're probably wrong, since I used an online translator to write most of them.
Net translator, could you please help me recall
How the subjunctive of "comer" is conjugated?
Guess it doesn't pay
To do Spanish homework this late
When my mind is tired, worn out and faded

Isn't that where the accent goes?
I need to translate "cat"
And maybe "cucumber", if you can find it
So I can get an A on my assignment, though...
No hablo espanol
Tarea es cruel
Uso un traductor en la Red con mi Dell
Pero lo fue senil
Y mi maestra es hostil

Net translator, how do Spanish rednecks say "ya'll"?
I can't pronounce the word that you just gave me
It's quite close to sunrise
Yo no tengo mucho mas...time
I've got a report and I need you to save me

Which way does the squiggly thing go?
My grades are lookin' bad
And finals are comin', I've been reminded
I need to go get an A on my assignment, though...
No hablo espanol
Tarea es cruel
Uso un traductor en la Red con mi Dell
Pero lo fue senil
Y mi maestra es hostil

I know, know, know
Just how immigrants feel
Maybe later, I'll bash my head against the wall
It's just no fair...Spaniards are so hard to talk to
And it's hard to rhyme
In Spanish whilst keepin' time
I'm just in a bind...

Isn't that where the adverb goes?
How do I convey that
I've got a list of words that all need definin',
So I can get an A on my assignment, though...
No hablo espanol
Tarea es cruel
Uso un traductor en la Red con mi Dell
Pero lo fue senil
Y mi maestra es hostil
Spanish Verse Translation (Hopefully): I don't speak Spanish / Homework is cruel / I'm using a translator on the Internet with my Dell / But it's senile / And my teacher is hostile
