The Lyrics

This song isn't even about me (I have a 3.5 GPA), but rather, the kid who sits next to me in math. I've seen his report card (I was NOT spying! I looked up and accidentally looked at his grades), and he is failing all his classes except for gym, where he is getting a C+. Yes. That's right. He even failed general music. I wrote this parody because all I know is that if I hadn't worked mega-hard all year, I might be just like him right now. How is he gonna get into eighth grade, let alone college?!
I know that things are getting tougher
When you can't pull your grades from the bottom of the barrel,
Wide open road to the eighth grade now...
It's looking f*cking narrow!!!

[CHORUS:]
All I know is that I don't know,
All I know is that I don't know nothing!
All I know is that I don't know,
All I know is that I don't know nothing!

We are getting taught to decide
Our job, but what,
Job can, I do with an empty mind?

[CHORUS:]
All I know is that I don't know,
All I know is that I don't know nothing!
All I know is that I don't know,
All I know is that I don't know nothing!

What should I do about my grades,
When I have a dumb, empty mind?
What should I do about my grades,
I'm running out of time!

[CHORUS:]
All I know is that I don't know,
All I know is that I don't know nothing!
All I know is that I don't know,
All I know is that I don't know nothing!

All I know is that I don't know,
All I know is that I don't know nothing.
All I know is that I don't know,
All I know is that I don't know nothing...

...that's not fine!
If you've been keeping track, Green Day actually did a cover of this song, but I changed the artist's name to the original artist, Operation Ivy, partly just to avoid comments saying, "Green Day didn't write that song! Operation Ivy did!" Oh, and I left the chorus the same because why change it? It's perfect for the song and it's also perfect for my parody. Anyway, hope you enjoyed it! Vote and leave a comment!
