The Lyrics

Man, does anyone else hate those stupid english tests?
What's the matter with the grades I'm getin'
Can't you tell that my brains too small
Maybe I should study some litature stories
Can't reach the book, I'm not that tall
Where have you been sitting down now to study
You can't pass English till you get a reading buddy
Everybody's talkin' 'bout the bad grades
Funny, but it's just english tests to me

What's the matter with the test I'm taking
Can't you tell that it's doo damn hard
Should I join into a special-Ed program
I can't help it if I'm just a dumb retard
Now in class the tests are so freakin' crazy
I'd study for the thing but I'm just way too lazy
It's junk, dead skunks, even if it prvokes "thunk"
It's just english tests to me

Oh, it don't matter what it says on the paper
'Cos it's always been the same questions
There's a teacher in town
And it don't 'mount to a room of indigestion
Same old questions

How about a day with no test worth takin
How 'bout instead we go to France (?)
You could really get a passing grade, student
If you would just get a half a chance
Don't waste your money on a new set of CDs
You prove more helpful when your grades please me
Next test, damn pest, grade lest, exam fest
It's just english tests to me

What's important 'bout the test you're givin'
Don't ya know that It don't mean much
Should I try to be a straight A student
If I am, then I'm out of touch
Don't you know 'bout the final exam dummy
All you need are pencils, even though it's all crummy
It's the next test, damn pest, grade lest, exam fest
It's just english tests to me
Everybody's talkin' 'bout the bad grades
Funny, but it's just english tests to me
