The Lyrics

This is originally a mondegreen. When I first heard the song as child, I thought its title is "Time is running out". So I imagined myself again in the school and doing an exam.
It is Friday dawn and my mood is down
And now my heart's beatin' like crazy
Got an exam day and my thoughts are away
why must it be today -
that awful school scare

My inspiration is quite low
and my thoughts are too slow
And I'm boilin' up inside
Ain't no way I'm gonna make it this time -

Time is running out!
Time is running out!
I'm sweating now here in school -
and my answers don't seem quite right
Time is running out!
Time is running out!
Now mere two hours' too short!

'You're such a lazy child, you are spoiled and you're wild"
That's all I ever get from my family ties
"If you don't study hard you never get
a good job", so say my old guys
I don't have a clue
and my thoughts are all blue
I've got an answer sheet
but my thoughts are not discreet -
Just fussing and squirming -

Time is running out!
Time is running out!
I wish I could turn back the clock
or re-read again all those books
Time is running out!
Time is running out!
Now mere two hours' too short!

My momma and my daddy
Are gonna bug me till I die
I can understand it
and it sure makes me cry

Time is running out!
Time is running out!
But wait till I'm grown-up, and
you can't me nag no more - no more!
Time is running out!
Time is running out!
Now mere two hours' too short!
