Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

There he goes, just walkin' down the hall
Singin' I'm the teacher and I'm gonna fail you all
Passing out homework and taking roll call
Singin' I'm the teacher and I'm gonna fail you all

He looked mean (looked mean)
He looked fierce (looked fierce)
He looked mean, he looked fierce
Through my soul his glare will pierce

Before I knew it, he was handing out a test
Singin' I'm the teacher and I'm gonna fail you all
Writin' down zeroes is the part he likes best
Singin' I'm the teacher and I'm gonna fail you all

The whole class (whole class)
Is on his (on his)
The whole class is on his
Afternoon detention list

Oh no,
I knew I was failing somehow
Yes I did,
And well I guess I won't get into Harvard now

Outside of class, his haunting presence still remains
Singin' I'm the teacher and I'm gonna fail you all
Going insane from his voice inside my brain
Singin' I'm the teacher and I'm gonna fail you all

Well I failed (I failed)
His class (his class)
Well I failed his class
This year I'm not gonna pass

Oh no,
I knew I was failing somehow
Yes I did,
And well I guess I won't get into Harvard now

He's the teacher and he went and failed us all!
Can't believe I have his class again next fall!
Like Pink Floyd says were all just bricks in the wall!
From Scrawny Johnny's 2nd album-"Master of Grilling"Coming soon the 3rd album-"Nevermind The Shark"
