The Lyrics

In a little less than a month, I'll be accepted and/or rejected to/from a number of colleges. All throughout the college process, our conselors warned us not to lie or embellish our applications in any way. This is a cautionary tale of some poor soul who did not heed that warning.
Lyin' on the form
Lyin' on the form
Application I'll pad
And accolades I'll add
Like a car with spinning rims,
Embellish what is thin
Lyin' on the form

There's a question 'bout my scores
Got 1600s - but of course!
Exaggerate my grades
Say that I got straight A's
They'll never know I lied
My falsehoods are so sly
Fibbin' 'bout my scores

Extracirriculars bland
This is getting out of hand
On the other hand
You must understand
My file's so very bleak
My only shot's to tweak
Application's bland, yeah!

Lyin' on the form
Lyin' on the form
I'm caught and I'm expelled
'Cause my name I've mispelled
Because I had to lie
I will attend DeVry
Lyin' on the form

Lyin' on the form
Lyin' on the form
Lyin' on the form
Lyin' on the form
Lyin' on the form

Nice. I did a college song to this tune as well, must be in the water. Loved the Devry line =)

You shoulda used this as your application essay.

Sounds like those who are discovered to have lied on the forms are quickly shown The Doors. Good job, Charlie, and best of luck to you.

Just submit your AmIRight ratings tally -- it's the only transcript that matters.

555...The kids probably learn it from the many coaches and team owners who have lied on their resumes. With so many getting caught by fact-checking journalists nowadays, you wonder why they still do it. Very good, and good luck in college.

We've all done this....I wouldn't be CEO of Sony International today if it weren't for a few...i should stop now. 555

Thank you, thank you everybody. It's so great to have so many people come out and support this, my record-breaking 30,000th parody. And to think, I've only gotten one '4' in all this time. Now, where did I leave my Bentley (complete with spinning rims- but of course!)?

Great parody, and that's no lie.

You should follow this up with "Lying on the Form part 2" about income tax evasion. :)

ABC-- We've all fibbed a little on forms here and there. Or else I wouldn't be Dr. Michael P. Squirrel the 3rd, esq. See, it's easy AND fun! Good work, Charlie!

5-5-5 to you, my man! I know I'm gonna do a parody of this song, but I just don't know what. Then again, there are other songs like that for me.
