The Lyrics

"A 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."(By the way, the above and this song are pieces I
wrote 2 years ago, back when I was obsessed with this issue.
Now, I am simply neurotic about other personal issues...)
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!
( lub-dub) is the pounding of my sad heart
The ringing bell ( ring,ring ), 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 not, less than zero
When I was foolish, you were 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!
( lub-dub) is the pounding of my sad heart
The ringing bell ( ring,ring ), 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!
(lub-dub ) is the pounding of my sad heart
The ringing bell ( ring, ring ), class is over, you're free.

Some parody authors here specialize in a certain topic or topics--Tokusu Sendai Blessranger is obsesses with cartoons and anime, William Tong wants to murder GWB, Arcade Junkie loves sports and video games. You seem to have school as your favored MO--interesting. This wasn't as good as the others I have read of yours...perhaps the OS (original song) was too limiting for the subject. I hope you have recovered nicely from those years! :) 445
