The Lyrics

It was exam time and I was avoiding studying, ironically enough. Yes, I know, this song has a billion parodies already. But seriously, what can one more hurt?
I can't take this
I can't take this
I can't take this
I can't take this

My, my, my, my exam schedule's so hard, makes me say, oh my lord
What are you doing to me with a slate so full in just one week?
If I could learn this right now
A slacker kid wishing I knew how
But I know, that it's too late
And this is a test, uh, I can't take

I told you man
I can't take this
Yeah I've been studying and you know
I can't take this
Look in my eyes man
I can't take this
You know I'm gonna bomb the next exam
I can't take this

3 more tests, you'll dance
You gotta pass it all so you will advance
Don't move out of your seat
If you get up you'll see defeat
While you're rollin' hold on
Make sure you don't quit and keep your learning going on
Like that
Like that
Cold on admission, try to move it back
Let 'em know that it's too late
And this is a test, uh, you can't take

Thought I told you
I can't take this
What am I studying for man?
I can't take this
Man, what the hell, school is in summer?
I can't take this

Give me a pen, some paper
Taking 'em cold that's how I'm a faker
Now, I know
When you pass around the exam you're telling us to go
This just, ain't right
Students are sweating so pass them alright?
Or a sheet, to learn
What they're gonna take and now they're gonna earn
The grade's, legit
Either study hard or you might as well quit

That's true because you know
I can't take this
I can't take this
Take it now
Stop, Crammin' Time

Go, with the flow, it is said
If you can't adapt to this then you're gonna be dead
So now, your mind's on a tear
Bust through pages, run your fingers through your hair
This is it, for the winter
Get through this and you'll get Christmas dinner
Pass end this scene
Just for a minute you'll gain self esteem

I can't take this
Look man
I can't take this
I'm not gonna get psyched man cause I know I can't
I can't take this
What the hell school's back in?
Take it now
Stop Crammin' time
I can't take this
I can't take this
I can't take this
Take it now
Stop Crammin' time

Every time you see me I'm cramming, up all night
Books lying on the floor and I'm underneath my light
Now why would I ever start doing this?
I've made a big mistake, this I will admit
I've been inside the books from Friday to Friday
It's cramming, all cramming, more cramming, yes cramming, and I wish this all away


I can't take this
I can't take this
Yeah
I can't take this
I told you
I can't take this
Tonight
Can't take this
Get me outta here
I can't take this

The original was a hit in 1990 so it should be 90s. However, it may have been recorded before 1990, but it still was a hit then.

Ironically, I'm surfing AmIRight in an attempt to procrastinate homework myself. You're not alone. Good parody, by the way.

All that cramming will put you in a stupor. In fact, (get ready to groan, people) it will make you a stupor freak! Stupor freak! Good luck, looks like you're gonna need it!

Good work! In the early 90's I was in uni and did a similar parody to hammer's "Pray" (you got to cram, just to make this exam. That's why we cram). Shame I never wrote it down...
