The Lyrics

As narrated by "Roger"... (Roger is a character I created because his name rhymes with "Mother")
Lying in my bed I hear the clock tick and think of you
My mother enters, no warning, invades the room
She says, "Roger!"
Why aren't you doing work?"
I say, "Mother
Come on, give a break
School life is stressful
I'm gonna break"

Always she pictures me
A sloth lying lazily
She nags out to me
I'm driving her crazy
"What's your future
If you stay this way?
Who's to take care of you-"

If you fail I am going to nag at you
Time after time
If you laze I am going to use the cane
Time after time

If you slop I'm going to ground you at home
Time after time
For heavens please get up and go do something
Time after time

Being rebellious I do not heed her advice
It's just my nature - my mind just likes to skive
School days boring
Never like it there
Pray that the bell will ring

If you slop I'm going to ground you at home
Time after time
For heavens please get up and go do something
Time after time

I'm driving her crazy
"What's your future
If you stay this way?
Who's to take care of you-"

If you fail I am going to nag at you
Time after time
If you laze I am going to use the cane
Time after time

If you slop I'm going to ground you at home
Time after time
For heavens please get up and go do something
Time after time

Time after time

Like your Stand By Bed, you need to pay closer attention to the pacing of the original song (or OS). Hope you don't think I'm picking on you, but newbies always attract my attention. Go to the messageboard at inthe00s.com ( via the link in the bottom half of the left side of the screen) and read up on the threads about parody writing that have been floating about for some tips. Again good luck.
