The Lyrics

NOT a true story
I'm failing away
Getting nothing better than Cs and Ds
Flunked biology
Gotta raise my grade to at least a B
I'm bored in the classroom, yes I'm so bored
I'll get a bad mark on, my book report
And I'll try, teacher, I'll try
To get it done

I hate chemistry
Detentions every day, make me want to scream
I'm doing so bad
I think of older days, and the grades I had
I used to do better, than I'm doing now
But somehow I dropped down, I don't know how
But as far as homework goes... I'll get it done

A gathering of homework appeared upon my desk
These papers make me want to mope around, and then I said
I am failing away, failing away
I'm getting Fs and Ds
Failing away, failing away
You can't do worse than me!

I thought my work was finished, but to my surprise
The teachers gave me more books to read and summarize
I am failing away, failing away
I'm getting Fs and Ds
Failing away, failing away
You can't do worse than me!

I thought this one was okay. Great pacing, but the rest was just okay.

I thought it was "just okay" too. Guess I don't write my best work over the weekends.

Not too shabby. Great parody idea for a great Styx song.
