The Lyrics

They asked him if your homework is a bore
Don't wanna see you flunk,
You better study more
The fire's in their eyes and their words are really sure
So cheat it, just cheat it

You better cram, you better do what you can
Don't wanna see an 'F', don't be a drop-out man
You wanna top mark, better do what you can
So cheat it, but you wanna keep straight

CHORUS
Just cheat it, cheat it, cheat it, cheat it
No one wants to be repeated
Showin' how detailed and right is your test
It doesn't matter if it's not best

Just cheat it, cheat it
Just cheat it, cheat it
Just cheat it, cheat it
Just cheat it, cheat it

They're out to assess, better cheat while you can
Don't wanna get caught, or you will face a ban
You wanna good mark, better do what you can
So cheat it, just cheat it

You have to show them that you're really prepared
You're makin' up your score,
This ain't no practice test
They'll mark you, then they grade you,
Then they'll tell you the rest
So cheat it, but you wanna keep straight

REPEAT CHORUS x 3

Just cheat it, cheat it
Cheat it, cheat it, cheat it

REPEAT CHORUS x 3

Just cheat it, cheat it
Cheat it, cheat it, cheat it

REPEAT CHORUS x 3

Just cheat it, cheat it, cheat it, cheat it
No one wants to be repeated
Just cheat it, cheat it
Cheat it, cheat it, cheat it

That was pretty cool...probably the way I would have written it years ago when the song first came out (as it was, I actually was trying to write "Eat It" just about the same time Weird Al did it--but he did it much better than I could have!) . I liked "No one wants to be repeated" and the chorus (but like Al did, he changed every chorus).You really should have changed "The fire's in their eyes." 554.

Thanks agrimorfee. I had trouble with the "fire's in their eyes" part. I wanted to keep it close to the original so changed it to "evil's in their eyes" but later didnt like it. I just left it unchanged since it has the right meaning anyway. What would u have suggested instead? As for the repeated chorus, i was mainly trying to follow the original format. I'm not very familiar with Weird Al's parodies but its a good alternative.
