The Lyrics

I think I found a new series of parodies to write (that aren't my annual year in review parodies of "1985", which I am no longer doing). Original Song:
Away at school, end of year two
They told me to read time and again
I thought about it

And now it’s time- final exams
Still not ready, gonna cram
Think I’ll do OK, cause...

I’m gonna pull an all nighter, need more caffeine
As much as I want to, I just can’t go to sleep
Open the book right at page two, read and I’ll get far
Couldn’t foretell that
These were so hard

This book is thick and it’s taking its toll
It’s so much harder than I gave it credit for
I don’t deserve this

I shouldn’t have stalled so long to start to study
And as much as I want to fall, can’t fall asleep
Really surprised, I did not know it would be this hard
Somebody help me,
Waited too long!

When will I learn to stop my procrastinating?
It’s 3 AM, not learned anything
Stare at the pages

Forgot the lectures that we had in class
Threw out my notes
Did not think I would need them
This book is so long!

I've never felt this angsty before
I've never prayed so much to pass a course
I am aware now
It is too late now

I’ve already screwed me over, but still can’t sleep
Not expecting an A at all, just want a D
I’ll be surprised if I pass it, I studied so hard
Who knew these exams
would be so hard?

I just pulled an all nighter, did not help me
My final percentage was a measly thirteen
Wasn’t surprised because I knew that I got them wrong
I couldn't stop it
Waited too long

Guess it’s not that bad...
Same class next fall!

As a total procrastinator I can totally relate to this one. It was a fantastic parody and I love Alanis!

(ABC) Remind me to show this to my little brother, he'd get the message and put off applying it, the lazy little bas...oh, sorry, got carried away there. Great parody here, not gut-bustingly funny, but still very amusing nonetheless. 555 for you!

It was great to revisit this one. How did that test go? Hope you stick around in the Artistry competition because it's sweet to see these fun parodies again.

I was going to comment on this but I put it off for sometime. Ywah, we all do this now and then, that way we csan least until the deadline comes and that when we would start pulling several pages of the term paper out of our asses.

If it wasn't for the last minute, nothing would get done. Nice work with a topic that everyone except Hermione Granger can relate to.

(Artistry) Wait, I read this one before? Huh. Seems I thought it was pretty good last time, and the same goes this time! Yep.

Seems I've procrastinated long enough before reading this one, much like I did before finals. Nice job, hope the test went well!

Artistry...All time favorite Alanis OS...and it's like you turned my college journals into a prime top marks from this procrastination queen!
