The Lyrics

Tribute to all the low down cheaters in my class, the dark side... First timers, ringleaders, whoever. If
you do it, it's still wrong. I worked hard for my grades, but you let me down repeatedly. I forgive you,
but don't try it in high school. This one is for you. ( Oh yeah, if there's a hypen, stress the 1st syllable
to make it work
Cough Three Times
Knock Three Times

Hey boy what ya try-in' to do
Down in the dark side, when you know how much that I studied
I can see your eyeballs shiftin'
I can hear my conscience shriekin'
This guy is no good, a devil in dis-guise
How could you?

What a traitor!
Cough three times, if a teacher's lurkin' close by
Sneeze really loud, if the answer is b.
What a cheater!
( Knock, knock ) is the pounding of my sad heart
The ringing bell ( tap, tap ), class is over, you're free.

If you peer in my bedroom tonight
Workin' so hard, made my name through pure patience and effort
Once I thought that you, were he-ro
But you're no-body, less than zero
When I was foolish, you were the water, in my de-sert

What a traitor!
Cough three times, if a teacher's lurkin' close by
Sneeze really loud, if the answer is b.
What a cheater!
( Knock, knock ) is the pounding of my sad heart
The ringing bell ( tap, tap ), class is over, you're free.

I can see your eyeballs shiftin'
I can hear my conscience shriekin'
This guy is no good, a devil in dis-guise
How could you?

What a traitor!
Cough three times, if a teacher's lurkin' close by
Sneeze really loud, if the answer is b.
What a cheater!
( Knock, knock ) is the pounding of my sad heart
The ringing bell ( tap, tap ), class is over, you're free.
