The Lyrics

#50 baby!!!!!! My 50th parody on the site...and so, this is a remake of the very first parody I wrote in 1994. I wrote this originally as a joke because of all the essays our teachers were giving us (so naturally I wrote this instead of the essays, but anyway)...the original wasnt that great, it wasnt that funny, and its pacing was awful. With the better ones that I wrote after it, I looked back on this one and was ashamed, so I decided for # 50 here, I'd rewrite it. I did the best I can to try and make it funny...it WAS hard, but anyway, here it is:
And I never thought I'd write this much
It's essay after essay
I think doing all this work is such
A complete waste of all my time

I hope, I'll be getting all good grades
I put all my thought in this
But it is worthless anyway
Cause my hand is starting to hurt

Keep Writing, Keep Writing
Knowing you can always get a cramp, for sure
That's what pens are for
In good times, In bad times
Your pen will run out of ink for sure
That's what pens are for

Well my pen just leaked on me
But still my papers not complete
Now I have to find another

Now I'll have to write it all again
Cause the ink cause a big stain
I blame it all on my damn pen
Oh I should get a computer

Keep Writing, Keep Writing
Knowing you can always get a cramp, for sure
That's what pens are for
In good times, In bad times
Your pen will run out of ink for sure
That's what pens are for

Keep Writing, Keep Writing
Knowing you can always get a cramp, for sure
That's what pens are for
In good times, In bad times
Your pen will run out of ink for sure
That's what pens are for
