The Lyrics

finals week is coming i wish i could make it go away
Well it's due tonight
Ten page take home test
One page is complete
There's no time for resting cause that isn't writing
This seems less and less inviting
Anybody want to do my work?

I don't own a dime
So I can not pay
But I'm gonna whine
'Til you write my paper that is due tomorrow
While I watch "The Mask of Zorro"
Anybody want to do my work?

Where's the tool that does homework for me?
Now I can't use it cause it isn't real
There's a fool who think's no work's boring

Oh great he said "forget it"
It breaks his code of ethics
Anybody want to do my work?

They all act anal retentive
Since I offer no incentive
Guess nobody wants to do my work

Well I should never ever even bother asking
No progress, time is passing
Guess somebody's got to do my work

Maybe it's a good decision
Not to commit plagiarism
I don't wanna but I'll do my work

Bonus points for going with "Tears for fears"! Nice extra irony there! ;-)

any irony with the original song is purely coincidental but thanks anyway... what exactly is the irony anyway

Well, I´ve known pps who literaly cried from angst during exam periods. Not where I´m now, and hopefully you´re not one of them at all, but that was what I was thinking of.

One of my favorite 80's songs. Excellent!

An excellent parody of one of the best songs of the decade. Great work! Fives all around.

Superb all round. This is one of my favourite 80's songs. I felt the pacing was a bit off in the 3rd verse, but it is still a great parody. Why don't you have a go at doing a parody of the other Tears For Fears classic "Mad World"? Overall 4.9 out of 5.

Don't know the original, but I sure know the experience being parodied. Ouch, do I. By the way, as to "Where’s the tool that does homework for me? Now I can’t use it cause it isn’t real," if you're talking about math homework, said tool is called an 89/92 ;-).

Looked at this one again, glad I gave it a 555 awhile back.
