The Lyrics

This one's pretty stupid, guys, I know that, but in my first four weeks as an overloaded high school sophomore, my experience has not been a sleep-drenched one. By the way, Cal is the name for my calculator (at the genius school, we name our calculators).
Seven days of saturday
Is all that I need
Sure could use a Sunday
I'd love to rest in peace
I don't sleep on Mondays
Or the rest of the week
I just don't spend much time in bed
So I just don't get any sleep

I won't lie to you
Oh, bed, I'd like to fly to you
I'd probably snooze and snore for about a week

I'm almost 6 feet under
But I just can't get to bed
Gonna cram while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead
Till they roll me over
And lay old Cal to rest
Gonna cram while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead

So I'm living for the action
I got way more than I need
Caffeine's my motor running
But at least I'm not on speed.....
This ain't no slumber party
Got no time for catching z's
If they say that that ain't healthy
Well then AP's a disease

I am not going to die, baby
And I've already gone crazy
I'm gonna rock like it's 1999's New Year's Eve

I'm almost 6 feet under
But I just can't get to bed
Gonna cram while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead
Till they roll me over
And lay old Cal to rest
Gonna cram while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead

Sleep when I'm dead, sleep when I'm dead
Gonna cram while I'm alive,
I'll sleep when I'm dead
Seven days of Saturday
Is all that I need

Sure could use a Sunday
I would love to rest in peace
I was born to cram
You know I wasn't born to die
But if there's no homework in heaven
I'll be sure to be on time

I'm almost 6 feet under
But I just can't get to bed
Gonna cram while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead
Till they roll me over
And lay old Cal to rest
Gonna cram while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead

I feel like I'm exploding
Getting full is my head
Gonna cram while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead

Till I'm six feet under
And they lay old Cal to rest
Gonna cram while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead

Cram when I'm dead, sleep when I'm dead
Gonna cram while I'm alive, sleep when I'm dead

To quote one of mine, "Who needs sleep? Well, you're never gonna get it." Wow, seems like we're pretty similar, I know from experience all the things you've written about (that I've read so far, at least). Where *do* you go to school? Well, other than naming your calculator. That's a bit beyond me - though we do have an arcade machine in our dorm lounge named "Fnord." So yeah, another good parody.

Actually, I'm at an "academic magnet high school" in Tennessee....you're in college. I'm just a sophomore, but to my parents' dismay I'm already looking at NYU and a theatre/journalism major. (So now for the next two years I get to listen to, "But that's so far away!" Well, duh, that's the point.) You seem more math/science oriented....numbers and formulas make my hair stand on end. But yes, in the sleep-deprived and overworked area, we could be twins. :^) Thanks, your parodies are hilarious!
