The Lyrics

What all the kids must be singing, just prior to summer vacation:

Yeah, now we're done
What I hate about school, the homework nights
Book report another one, Shakespeare's on a roll, tonight, yech
Teach hollering in my ear
Threaten me with things I'm suppose to fear, follow rules
[that's what I hate]

That's what I hate about school
[that's what I hate]

What I hate about school, no chewing gum in the class
The clock goes up, down, spins around, freak about no hall pass, yeah
Got detention now, makes me sneer
Tells me all bad things on my record here, she's so cruel

[that's what I hate about school]
I just want to abuse rules
[it's how they treat us so cruel]
That's what I hate about school
[that's what I hate about school]
And why I hate all the rules
[that's why I hate]

wahh!

hey!

What I like about school, have summers off all right
Always wanna' play you know, outside just feels alright, yeah
My vacation's end is near
Yell at me that thing that will drive my fears, golden rules

[that's what I hate about school]
I just want to abuse rules
[it just makes me wanna spew]
That's what I think about school
[that's what I hate about school]
I can't stand those golden rules
[that's what I hate about school]

(and what I like about school)
[Turkey break]
(and what I like about school)
[Christmas break]
(and what I like about school
[Summer breaks]
(not what I hate about school)
[what I hate about school]

Bell, uh huh huh, ring ring ring
Bell, now uh huh, brrring...
Free, uh huh huh, yeah!!!!!!

School sucks, but everyone has to go through it in some way, be it public, chartered, private, parochial, military, Waldorf, Montessori or reform. This is a great parody, and 5s for you.

You must have been a little attention Mark, as this is well written - I promote you to grade 555.

I was once public schooled, but it was pretty much h-e-double-toothpicks on earth, so I quickly went to be schooled at home. Still, great parody. Let's hope school is out for the next 555 days!

LOL, I agree about chewing gum. I mean, it's scientifically proven if you chew gum, your braincells become more active.Do the teachers know that and are trying to make us slow on purpose cause we're ahead of their leagues? Likewise, 555

"Grade" of thanks to you, Leo!!!
DJ Blaze - June 21, 2009 - Report this comment
Oh, BTW, everyone on A.I.R. calls me DJ, Blaze, or DJ Blaze, but my real name is not any of these. Here's how I came up with my name: the "DJ" part comes from all these famous DJs like Tiesto, Taka, Simon, Encore, ect. Plus, I did sort of an acid-techno album called "Origins" under this pseudonym on Acoustica Mixcraft 3. (Sadly, it sucked.) The "Blaze" part comes from my favorite Pokemon, Blaziken. My real name is Caleb, but "Caleb" isn't very interesting or flashy. Sorry, Mark Scotti, but I wanted to make this clear.

Haven't been in school in a long, long time, but this reminds me of how much I wanted to get out!

A "hall Pass" and thanks to Agri & Porfle!
Matthias - September 17, 2011 - Report this comment
This one is a Mark Scotti classic. One of the first I remember reading from you and one of the select few that actually has a recording. It still holds up today.
Mark Scotti - September 17, 2011 - Report this comment
A "High Grade' of thanks to you, Matthias! The recording came out great on this one.
Abbott Skelding - September 18, 2011 - Report this comment
Nice job, I like how the things you like about school are when you have no school! Very nice, and the recording was great too (although I would have liked to hear the whole thing)
Mark Scotti - September 18, 2011 - Report this comment
Thanks, Abbott! The recordings are produced by a radio station, so i can't control how much of my lyrics they use. i'm just happy to get a "well produced" song out of it for free!

I haven't been in the kind of school where gum chewing isn't allowed in almost a decade, but I can still relate, I also think that the dichotomy of this one is just so perfect. Many of your parodies in the past have left me puzzled by cutting out important words to make pacing work, but this one wasn't like that at all, very good job Mark, impressive work, and easily among my favorites of your vast collection.

(ABC) Pretty sweet parody here, Mark. I personally couldn't stand the school uniform, mainly because the black shoes roasted your feet in the summer. 555 for you!

3:00 bell rings of thanks to you, Bobpie!
