The Lyrics

Inspired by an off the cuff comment I made to my friend on SAT day. The spiritual successor to my cult hit "Testing S.A.T."
Time is up, but I'm...not done!
I took the test and the test won!
I took the test and the test won!
I answered twenty but ...I got one
I took the test and the test won!
I took the test and the test won!

Took two in English and then one in Math
Guess that I passed none
Now I'll have to face my teacher's wrath
I took the test and the test won!
I took the test and the

Five blank circles have me...outdone!
I took the test and the test won!
I took the test and the test won!
I lost my future, screwed in the long run
I took the test and the test won!
I took the test and the test won!

Can't go to college and and it feels so bad
Guess my race is run
Just because I can't subtract or add
I took the test and the test won!
I took the test and the

I took the test and the test won!
I took the test and the test won!
I took the test and the test won!
I took the test and the

Having just completed a course at a local college and anxiously awaiting my grade, I can identify with this one, which made me laugh my class off. Very funny!

Charlie, Been about 37 years since I took the SAT. Think I got about 1200+. Here's what I think about it now...'So What'? Congratulations, you did pass the parody writing part of the exam. 5's

Very good, but I had to dock you a point for doing the Clash's version instead of Bobby Fuller's, one of the greatest rock and roll recordings of all time.

Well, at least you can spell and puctuate. That's worth fives!
Melhi - June 14, 2004 - Report this comment
Great job!
Paul Robinson - June 14, 2004 - Report this comment
Geez, I didn't even NOTICE he didn't use Bobby Fuller's version. I don't know if I would have docked the score, but I would have personally been aghast. Charlie I guess you must be a bit younger than I...(54) - (Yeah, like who isn't !)
Charlie Decker - June 15, 2004 - Report this comment
Sorry, guys. I'm a bit younger than you, Paul (like 37 years younger). Also, I'd like to point out thtat the song is stretching the truth a little. I did well on the S.A.T, it's just that at the school I go to (a N.Y.C. private prep school), "doing well" is not quite good enough. Oh, well. Hooray for the Clash!

Very creative! It's been almost 12 years since I took the SAT; I did pretty well. Anyway, 5-5-5 is what I vote on this.

Uh, Merry... "At least you can spell and puctuate"? Or are you using a word that walks the censor's line here?
Meriadoc - June 15, 2004 - Report this comment
Egads! A plot! Those d*mned liberals stole my 'n' while my back was turned! ;-)

Charlie - GEEZ-SUS! 17, huh? Damn, that means you were born roughly around 1987, TWENTY YEARS AFTER I WAS FREAKING SEVENTEEN!!! OH...where in the hell are my orthopedic shoes?

Oooh, what month were you born, Charles?
Charlie Decker - June 16, 2004 - Report this comment
December 1986. Year of the Tiger, baby!
Michael Pacholek - June 16, 2004 - Report this comment
Apparently we stole Merry's "A," too.
Charlie Decker - June 18, 2004 - Report this comment
I got the scores of the SAT II (the 2 tests that inspired this song) today. I really got the better of the Writing section. However, I'll give the Math IIC the victory by TKO.

(ABC) Good 5's

(ABC) Whoever's original version it's based on, good job.

(ABCs) Dang, I'm a July 1987 Rabbit. I can relate well with this one, but it was too short for a vote in the round. 5-4-4
Charlie Decker - June 24, 2004 - Report this comment
Aww, raspberries :-(
Melhi - June 24, 2004 - Report this comment
abc -- I really liked this one and you were such a close second I'd say you were a half-a-hair-breadth's close for me in the contest. Top notch!
John Jenkins - June 25, 2004 - Report this comment
Very good parody. Like everybody else, I am not surprise that you did well on the Writing section and I suspect that your Math score was more than satisfactory.

(ABC) Spell and puctuante. Pucktuant. punkschew.... oh fliibbertygibbit! It was a good parody, even tho' I failed the test. ;-)

Hey - ever notice that the "Place Your Vote" form looks a lot like a standardized test? I used a #2 pencil and my answers are: E, E, E.
