The Lyrics

This is really old. I thought up this song well over 20 years ago. It's about a pot head I went to high school with.
I'm failing a grade
Going to have to repeat....my sophomore year.
'Cause I wouldn't do what they said.......
...instead I melted my brain, with drugs and beer!
I'm not a moron.....I'm just a punk.
Don't really care if.....I pass or flunk.
But I'll die, my folks say I'll die....if I don't graaaaaaduate.

I, average a D.
"D" as in the dope, that killed my memories.
Some bummers, some rad.
I stink of week old smoke,and it's really bad.
I act so cool and clever.......as a stoner goes.
But I don't even care......if I washed my clothes.
But I'll try... best as I can. To Graaaaaaduate.

A gathering of teachers, with my mom and dad.
My parents came home from conferences, and they were really mad!
They said: Don't fail a grade, don't fail a grade, don't fail the grade you burn out
Don't fail a grade, don't fail the grade, pass your classes or get out.

[instumental]

I thought that they were tutors, and they would help me pass.
They turned out to be jocks, and, they started, to kick my ass!
They said: Don't fail a grade, don't fail the grade, don't fail the grade you dirt ball.

Good song! See my similar Styx parody if interested. And thanks for spelling "sophomore" correctly! :D Hehe. Good job.

The guy may have failed but the song passes. Nice work.

I can relate, we were all kids once. It took a while for me to take high school seriously back in the day.
