The Lyrics

I think this may be the hardest song I've attempted. Grueling!
Finally got it right
Took a week maybe two
Of me studying through the night

Finally got it right
Took a week maybe two
Of me studying through the night

Finally got it right
Took a week maybe two
Of me studying through the night

Crunching numbers, blunders
Me somehow to unknown wonders
I'm not very good at math
And the test is a pest
Just like the annoying rest
Never know just how to graph
And my folder's getting older
Like my pencil holder
The third time's always a charm
And this year I'm passing
Trashing and crashing
Now somebody hit the alarm

Won't somebody hit the alarm?

Finally got it right
Took a week maybe two
Of me studying through the night

Finally got it right
Took a week maybe two
Of me studying through the night

Finally got it right
Took a week maybe two
Of me studying through the night

Finally got it right
Took a week maybe two
Of me studying through the night

Though lately my wrist hurts
And my fingers got blisters
I think I've got to take breaks
Just up until lately
I've been doing it wrong
What took so long, for goodness sakes
The caffeine has me
I'm seeing things scholastically
Though it's tearing up my insides
The test is kind of early
I think it starts at six-thirty
But now my brain is totally fried!

Won't somebody hit the alarm?

Finally got it right
Took a week maybe two
Of me studying through the night

Finally got it right
Took a week maybe two
Of me studying through the night

Crunching numbers, blunders
Me somehow to unknown wonders
I'm not very good at math
And the test is a pest
Just like the annoying rest
Never know just how to graph
And my folder's getting older
Like my pencil holder
The third time's always a charm
And this year I'm passing
Trashing and crashing
Now somebody hit the alarm

I hate both my roommates
Somehow they think they're so great
I'm the only one who thinks it's grand
I'll finally get to pass that class
And move to even harder math
Won't somebody give me hand?

Though lately my wrist hurts
And my fingers got blisters
I think I've got to take breaks
Just up until lately
I've been doing it wrong

Got it down but I won't get it right
Cause now my brain is truly fried!
