The Lyrics

Ah, if only AmIRight allowed for formatting so that this parody could be in lots of different fonts...wouldn't that be irritating?
I've got an essay due next week
And there is a problem that makes me freak
A choice that could determine if I fail or pass
I sit here thinking, blisters on my arse

It is a choice, it is a choice
A choice of font
Which should I choose, which should I choose
Which type of font?

A real hot topic, on my mind it burns
It is my very own pointless concern
Should I go Chiller, such illegible wank
Maybe Wingdings for a very stupid prank

What should I choose, what should I choose
What type of font?
No time to loose, no time to loose
Which type of font?

This may not seem really important
Should be on the topic, focused
Why can't I just admit it's all worthless
It's just the bloody font!

Why can't I work, why can't I work
Must choose a font
I'm such a twerp, a stupid berk
Must choose a font

Papyrus looks so weird to me
Calibri's as boring as fonts can be
I could use Times New Roman, maybe Miriam
Or Jokerman, but that's utterly dumb

Focus on work, you stupid berk
Not on the font
Must try to work, feels like a curse
Must choose a font

Cannot think of a more pointless thing
Still it's gotten my brow sweating
There's one I'll admit: I will never
Use Comic Sans, it sucks!

Just let me be, just let me be
You stupid font
Consuming me, like OCD
This bloody font

I'm such a twerp, I cannot work
Stuck on the font
Deadline's at twelve, two secs to go!
This song was chosen purely because it's the intro song to Pushing Up Roses' Let's Play Shorties series. I am a complete dork.

Spud-riffic.

As a graphic design major, I'm always happy to see design/typeface parodies....great work, and as long as you don't use Comic Sans, Jokerman, or Papyrus, you'll be good

Yep, you're right about Comic Sans and a bunch of other fonts being so overused. Oh, and here's a CD full of 555 fonts for you, my friend!

Really clever topic choice here. I love the fact that you listed so many different fonts. I too wish you could have did this parody in different fonts (at least have the font names in their own font).

(Artistry) Clever and absolutely 100% unique idea! Loved it!

(Artistry) I work as an editor, so this hits close to home. Just remember, if you use a font that has to be large to be legible, you can increase the page count of your essay. ;-)

This wasn't your usual type of parody. (Hyuk hyuk).

Wow Agri. . .I have to say that being familiar with all those fonts helps. Luckily for me, most my teachers spell out what font they want us to use (Usually Times New Roman) at any rate--I enjoyed this one

Good work. I was supposed to use either Times New Roman, Georgia or Garamond font when writing computer assignments (two more choices than B.A. Dave got), and one time I had a teacher that I hated, whom I typed an essay about New World Order conspiracies entirely in bold italic Comic Sans just to get his goat, and spelled my name "Andrea" to make him even more mad. Great work and 5s.
