Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Parody written for "Ages Of AmIRight" contest after my initial idea hit a stumbling block. I was never mathematically inclined and wrote this song from the point of view of someone also not mathematically inclined. My actual high school homeroom was Room 15, but I did not drop out of school, I ended up expelled for something stupid and getting a GED 3 years after everyone else my age graduated high school.

*Heads down: When I was in school, from kindergarten to high school, the teachers always made the whole class put their heads down on their desks and turned the lights out at least once a day. Why they did this, I have no idea except possibly as a way of introducing kids to governmental control. You do not get asked to put your head down in college or at work...
*Solons: Politicians, referring to the crock of s*** that is government-owned schools.

YouTube of original song (NOT Vevo)
I'm a-sittin' in a room in a public high school that says
Room 15... it's a math class! math class, yeah
I'm doin' my division, long way
lookin' for some time, get away
Heading for the john, getaway, loo getaway,
My math assignment, it's a pain in the arse
But I'm doin' it all
In my math class
I'm doin' subtraction, 13 minus fitty
Those negatives will put me deep in pity

My math class is the boringest place
In all, of the school
Math class baby, math class, bay-bee.
Math, baby, that's where it's at,
Oooh, math, baby, that's where it's at

Time for, thaaat... algebra class
'cause math rules in the math class
Now I sit way back at the back of the room
Such a boring old class, and I'm sensin' the doom

Never gonna use it
Not in real life, now
Not headed for college
Never in my life, now

My math class is the stupidest place
In all, of the school
Math class baby, math class, bay-bee.
Math, baby, it f**kin' sucks
Addin', multiplyn' algebra, division
Lookin' out the window
At an old city pigeon
My math class bores me
My math class bores me when everybody's
Puttin' their heads down, head down, down, DOWN
Teacher said to do it, everybody's head down, baby!*
Pick up our heads and we do some more math
Everybody's addin', everybody's timesin', baby
We're all doin' math! We're not doin' meth!

Multiplication,
It's not easy to learn,
And it's about to be spurned
I got me a prob, it's 50 times 20
So come on and lend your calc-u-lator

My math class is a stupid old place, teacher is a moron

School is owned by solons*
Math class, baby! Math class bay-bee!
(Math class...Math class...)
Math class, that's where it's at!

9 times 9, do it now, baby!
Pi times 87, do it now!
10 times pi, on the dot, baby!
I can't do it
X times 13 plus 9, baby
X times pi plus 23
I can't do that new math, baby
Do it...
Screw off!... I dropped out, teach!

Drop-out, I'm a drop-out!
Drop-out, I'm a drop-out!
Drop-out, that's where it's at
Drop-out, no more school, dude!
No school, that's where it's at
Drinkin' and a smokin',
I'm stayin' out all night, no more school!

Maybe they wanted to see if you could do the math.....Write a better parody and readers will beat a math to your door....I liked math in school...way back a few...Liked the math-meth line...

Thanks, AFW... this was probably the same person who 1-bombed all my parodies recently but liked this one (or hated math) enough to give it 2s... math was probably way different when you were in school, hope you've been doing all right without heart problems...

YESS! Andria's back and my enjoyment is increasing by geometric proportions! Andria + a good song = good x always! ;D

Great job and brings back not-so-great memories.

Boy do I hate math. Even though I like it, it turned out to be my worst subject. I liked math, but math never liked me. Math and I don't seem to get along very well. Well what's 5+5+5? The answer: A hilarious parody worth reading...as well as learning.

Math was a big problem for me, especially freshman year in high school. I used to tell people I could never get interested in numbers unless they had dollar signs in front of them. Seems you did well in English, though. Much more useful.

(Ages 2) Nice to see your parody again! You sure captured the frustrations and difficulties on how math can be. Math and I are like electricity and water and when it comes to problem solving, my brains fried. When I was in college, I wanted to study accounting to be an accountant, but I was never good at math. I suck at it. 5 to the 3rd power to this!!

Like AFW I was also a big fan of the "Math, Meth" line. This entire parody was silly and coming from a guy who did this parody last year: "Large Shark". I know how hard it is to parody. Well done ma'am.

Love the OS and you did a great job with this. I got lost towards the end with all the repeating parts (in the OS), but great job!

Very good job with a very tough song. I did the math, it came out 5s.

(AofA) I HATE MATH! But like this parody. "Math Class!"
Blaydeman - October 19, 2011 - Report this comment
(AofA) Math has probably been my worst subject throughout my entire life. I don't like it one bit! This parody however, is a different story. I liked this one a lot.

(Ages) Some of the pacing was a bit off, particularly during the "the Love Shack is a little old place where we can get together" in which you always left out one or two syllables. That aside, I can sympathise with the postulation that Mathematics Class is complete bollocks. 455

AGES...wow, I LOVE this. Great pacing, funny lyrics...(probably the only time you'll see my proper English fanatical self letting "boringest" slide)...all around just GREAT.
