The Lyrics

New Year's Resolutions parody.
I thought 'em up on New Year's Day
And then I wrote 'em down
Know I could've been class president
Instead of their class clown
Quit your laughing, you just wait
Yeah, let's get one thing clear
You have seen me waver
Broke ev'ry one last year
Writing down my resolutions
I'll keep 'em this year
I'll keep 'em this year

I like my pants and knee-high boots
They don't seem wrong to me
But laughing people everywhere
Aren't seeming to agree
And when I'm racing in the street
This year won't strip the gears
I won't seem so lazy
And won't put down my peers
Yeah, I'm hereby resolving that
I'll keep 'em this year
I'll keep 'em this year
I'll keep 'em this year
Just keep 'em one year

(musical break)

Gonna be hard without a doubt
Never done this before
It's not too late to chicken out
Gonna be quite the chore
It's never a pretty sight
When you see me under the gun
But then no one can deny it
When this year is finally done

I won't seem so lazy
I won't put down my peers
Better believe
I'll keep 'em this year

I'll keep 'em this year
I'll keep 'em this year
Will keep 'em all year

I dare to no longer stare
Keep, keep, I'll keep 'em this year
I dare to no longer stare
Keep, keep
See here, it's not as you feared
Keep, keep, I'll keep 'em this year
See here, it's not as you feared
Keep, keep
Oh dear, I'm shedding a tear
Keep, keep, I'll keep 'em this year
Oh dear, I'm shedding a tear
Keep, keep
Beware, I'm going to swear
Keep, keep, I'll keep 'em this year
Beware, I'm going to swear
Keep, keep

I hope you keep at least one of your resolutions this year, Tim. 5-5-5. ;)

Thanks Serafina. I guess the trick is making ones that you can keep. I should try that next year.
