The Lyrics

For most of my short life, I have been very good at academic subjects. I was great in English, great in History, Reading, Math, yada yada yada. I mean I'm the kid who doesn't even take notes in class. However, my Freshman year in highschool proved different in one class. Algebra 2 Honors. This song is basically my story, of how I've fallen so far behind, how the guidance counciller wouldn't let me drop out, how the teacher Mr. Lelinski gives me a bunch of CRAPOLA (He's pretty cool though, I like him), how I pulled my grade up from an 'F' to a 'D' and how in the end it doesn't matter because my other honors grades (they're weighted) keep my GPA really high.
I hate Algebra, can't stand Geometry
All these equations make no damn sense at all to me
Open my book, I take one quick look and see
Hundreds of problems, no one can tutor me
Because I'm just too dumb, just too slow
What's this mean? I don't know!
Look how my class rank goes
Maybe I'll pass with, hopefully
A "D'

Mamajust failed a test
My view on factors is skewed, tried to wing it, now I'm screwed
Freshman year is almost done
But now I've gone and wrecked my GPA
Mama, oooh, didn't mean to do this bad
It looks like I'll have to retake the course in
Summer school, summer school
Boy, I really screwed up big time

Today we took a test
I studied and I planned, pencil's shaking in my hand
What's a logarithm? I do not know!
So I leave it blank and end up like a fool
Mama, oooh, His class rank goes
I can not stand this! Sometimes wish I just wasn't smart at all

I see a very big and scary equation
Use P.E.M.D.A.S! Use P.E.M.D.A.S! You must never forget this
Math I'm always using, it still keeps confusing me
Pythagorus! Pythagorus!
Pythagorus! Pythagorus!
Pythagorus makes me pissed!
His rule I mi-i-i-i-issed

I'm a normal boy, please listen to me
He's a normal boy, this ain't where he should be
Spare him his grade from Mr. Lelinski!
Let me drop, let me go, coun'cler let me go
You can't drop – No! We will not let you go! Let him go
You can't drop! We will not let you go! Let him go
You can't drop! We will not let you go! Let me go
Will not let you go! Let me go!
Will not let me go! Never let me go-o-o-o
No, no, no, no, no, no, no!
O' guidance coun'cler, guidance coun'cler
Guidance coun'cler let me go
That Lelinski has a problem put aside for me, for me
For me

So you think you can fail me and watch me just cry
So you think that this grade will make college say "Bye!"
Ohhh, teacher
You just can't fail me teacher
I know I will pass
I know I will pass with a "D'

Oooh yeah, oooh yeah
This class doesn't matter
Math's not where I will be
This class doesn't matter."
This class doesn't matter to me

Look how my class rank goes

very amusing Moose - loved the Pythagoras bit (btw, when does his theorem stop being a theorem and just start being a fact) - and good luck with that Mr Lelinski - 555

Good parody, math can be tough

You may be struggling with Algebra 2 Honors, but are passing in Parody Writing 555 quite well.

Perfect! Just what I was looking for. I need a parody for creative writing class and this is just too good to be true. Do you mind if I use it? I won't copy it all since I need to change some things since I'm a girl but this is exactly my scenario, except I have an A+ since I go to a very easy school full of dumb people. In a way it is totally perfect for me, except my worst fear would be if I had a B since I've always had straight A's (not always but it started in 6th grade.) Thank you so much! I LOVE IT! PS I'm also a freshman stuck ahead of my group.

Even if you got permission, DO NOT on any account pass this parody off as yours, in whole or in part, to your teacher. You would be LYING. Write your own parody. Let the chips fall where they may. You might even learn something from the effort. Heed my warning, young lady: you may be on the road to a lifetime of cheating and unhappiness!

Me Too: You are not thinking well. After the parody becomes well-received, you will have an undeserved, good reputation as a creative writer. You will have pressure to live up to that reputation. So what will you do? Continue to lift material from web sites? Eventually, you'll get caught and embarrassed, and you'll be much worse off than if you had been honest. Also, why would you want to advertise, in school, that math class doesn't matter? You need adult guidance and you need a tutor to help you with what is probably fear of math.

This is a cute piece. I just wish those wreck tangles would quit hitting on me. Three pentagons for this.

Pathetic attempt at a brownie... but 5s

LOL, this is so great. I had Mr. Lelinski for algebra 2 honors as well, in spring of 2004. I actually found this because I was looking to see if Mr. Lelinski was still around, because I'm looking to go back to college and need a tutor to help me brush up on some math. Mr. Lelinski's class was difficult- I put many hours into the endless homework- but he was one of the best teachers I ever had :)

The AL-gebra is a devil in disguise for me .. for me ... for ME-E! How could you have missed that sub, Kid? ..... I actually thought that WAS the real lyric when I first heard it
