The Lyrics

Yes! I'm not dead! I just finished Tech Ed. I was so scared to use the power tools, but I did it, and I'm alive, I've got all of my fingers and toes, and only a scratch on my hand from where I bumped it against the buffer. My teacher told us these stories, though, about like a kid who sawed his finger off, a girl who sanded right through her fingernail, a guy who got his hair ripped out in the drill press, a retard who drank stain and almost died, and even a guy whose project was grabbed out of his hands by the buffer, and then it hit him in the stomach... maybe a little lower... get it? AAAH!!
My teacher told horror stories 'bout the machines
I counted the stories- there were seventeen
I tried act all strong
Instead, I wrote this song
I wondered if it would be long till
That happened to me, yeah me, singin'

[CHORUS:]
I survived Tech Ed!
I didn't kill myself on the band saw, baby
I survived Tech Ed!
So come over an' celebrate with me

Then we had to memorize the machines' names
Does it matter?, I thought,
They sound all the same

Why do names matter, doesn't safety matter more?

But still, I took the damn test
An' guess who passed? Me, yeah me
But still, I took the damn test
An' guess who passed? Me, yeah me, singin'

I was scared but I had to use the damn machines

An' I'm hurt or dead
I'm yellin' YAY! in my head
I'm relieved, singin'

[CHORUS:]
I survived Tech Ed!
I didn't kill myself on the band saw, baby
I survived Tech Ed!
So come over an' celebrate with me

Jesus Christ! What the hell is it with me and accidentally leaving out things in songs? And it's all been lately, too. Well, anyway, I forgot to paste the chorus (aren't I smart) in one of the verses. Oh, and I meant to put "An' I'm NOT hurt or dead" for it. I am such an idiot.
