The Lyrics

You ever had one of those lessons where you don't know what's going on, your classmates don't know what's going on, and the teacher is either speaking in some ancient dialect of Gibberish or fecked off to get a coffee or whatever? This parody is about those kinda times.
I'm still waiting for ten past three
Cause then is when we all can leave
All of us are bored as can be
This current lesson is weak

The teacher isn't good today
His speech is rather slurred I'd say
Sometimes I wonder if he is alright
Or if he's just kinda high

There's too little fun, so many people
With just one little problem
We are so bored all around
Cause we are all in a class of confusion

Well, this is the class we are in (Oh-oh-oh)
We can't do the task we're given (Oh-oh-oh)
Not for a lack of tryin' (Oh-oh-oh)
We just have no clue how to start it

Ooh, teacher, man, you've left us now
Our productivity's gone down
Time wasted goes up each hour
Now that you have taken a powder

Wasting our time, in this damn place
Feelin' like we are prisoners
We're just so damn bored all around
You have left us in a class of confusion

We're in a state of boredom (Oh-oh-oh)
No chance of getting our work done (Oh-oh-oh)
Not to say we aren't tryin' (Oh-oh-oh)
But we just have no motivation

Just what was the lesson for?
Uhh, it was something boring
This may last all night, that's kinda shite
If the teacher doesn't get the point soon, I'll fight
To reach the door

Will we be going home tonight?
Our aggravation is pretty high
The teacher's speaking gibberish
Still going, so we can't leave

We're kinda mad, we're unruly people
We have one little problem
So fucking bored all around
We are just a tired class of confusion

Well, this is a waste of time 'n' (Oh-oh-oh)
The teacher is again missin' (Oh-oh-oh)
We're kinda sick of tryin' (Oh-oh-oh)
Just please let us out the bloody door

Ten past three, now we're leavin' (Oh-oh-oh)
We are sick of this confusion (Oh-oh-oh)
Don't need teacher's permission (Oh-oh-oh)
He knows this was all bollocks too
I don't know what time you Americans finish school, but it's always been 3:10 for me.

(Ages) Great OS (big Phil Collins/Genesis fan speaking here), great work, and agreed with Porfle, brings back nightmares/memories... 5s.

(Ages 2) Wow, that's one heck of a class. I may hate school, but I was able to do well in some of my classes. College is worse. One class after another and all them term papers, theses, boring professor lectures, etc. When I was in high school, I would always look at my watch to see what time it is, plus this guy who used to sit next to me in US History class would point his wrist out to me and I would show him the time on my watch. I was always glad to do that for him. But anyways, great work and 555.

AGES....pretty much love this. One of my favorite 80s OS's, rewritten into a situation I think we all can relate to. Perfect! :)

Not sure what happened to my comment here because I obviously must have read this in Ages of Amiright. Oh well. Talk about your class of confusion.
