The Lyrics

Everybody skips some school sometime;
You use deception like a tool.
Lessons maybe, are not contractual, like law school,
It's so dyin', everyday the same old drool.
Falling on out seems like a breezy thing for you,
It's not like MIT where the fun to love is gonna learn you.
With luck and lies they may not see I'm hurtin' worsen, can't get a B;
School is a sleeper in slow motion,
You bide your time just for promotion,

Everybody skips some school sometime;
They used to teach with golden tools.
Lesson today, he who has the gold makes the rules,
The system is so doggone cruel.
It's hard to help it when the mouse click starts to say,
A real liability, the reason you're kept away,
At seven-o-eight it's so easy,
To dread your class in history;
Though you try, you somehow knew,
You'd catch a dime's worth of blue flu.


Everybody skips some school sometime;
You use deception like a tool.

Everybody? :D

Not bad, but once again, Guy, you skipped the prelude of a song. You know how some of us are, so dedicated to pacing that they might as well be figure skating judges. Of course, if Guy really WAS homophobic, he'd write a parody about figure skaters. Maybe I should shut up, or else there'll be yet another "Sk8er Boi" parody.

Mike - There is a prelude to this song? Didn't see it on the lyrics I plucked off the internet. Honest mistake this time. Yah, skating, Go figure...

The prelude, spoken by Main Ingredient lead singer Cuba Gooding -- dad of Mr. Show-Me-the-Money -- "OK, so your heart is broke. You sit around moping, crying, crying -- you say you're even thinking about dying? Well, before you do anything rash...dig this!" And then he sings the song.
