The Lyrics

I've done this one before, and I'm doin' it again! Don't know where the topic came on this...think of it as 'Flyin' Qantas' on a smaller scale.
No one knows what goes on
Between the time when
I go to sleep then
Open my eyes

How wrong is Mrs. Right
When she says I'm
Always behind
Technique- and feelings-wise

But you see
My dreams are crazy
I can't keep track of them all
In school hours, I'm too lazy
To use my mind, I
Just play football

Well, okay, I just lied
I do use my mind
Yes it's true
What else is new?

And I do use my mind
For my school work
They just don't see it
But can you?

Cause my teach-
ers, they expect me
To be the next Picasso
I'm not Rembrandt, neither Monet
I only draw stuff
For fun, you know?

When teacher marks our big art project
She says I didn't work at my best
When I try to explain it to her
She says 'As if', rips on someone else

All I painted was Abey Lincoln
Sitting in his famous chair
All my classmates, they say it's amazing
That Miss says that I'm not quite there

Art teachers never get
What students do like
What their minds are like
Behind closed eyes
For Artistry. NOT based on a true story. Ninjas are cool.

Art teachers are always A) weird, burnt out hipsters who slid into the job, B) Gay, C) disgruntled failed artists, or D), all of the above. Answer correctly, and your score will be 555

"How wrong is Mrs. Right" was a cute line. I always like Art Class, because there was a lot of hot girls in that class, and you didn't have to be smart in order to woo them in there, you didn't have to be dumb either, that's in Gym.

(Artistry) Comin' off like a mini-Adagio here. :)You really should have kept the original ryhme scheme in stanzas 3 & 6.

(Artistry) Rhyme Scheme did seem a little bit off, but that said you fit the pacing beautifully. The intro being about dreams kinda threw me off because the majority of the song was about Art class, was this about day dreaming? I guess it didn't seem to follow a theme, it started out about day dreaming, and ended up about over-zealous art teachers, still great pacing.

Artistry- Not to sound repetitive, but I too was confused about the topic. I take it it's about how blind art teachers are about a student's artistic style. (Am I right? What do I win??) Good job, Conq.
