The Lyrics

I used to be a summer day camp counselor and us counselors would always dread "free play time" which was our recess type thing. Just a time of complete unstructured MADNESS! MADNESS I SAY!
Intro: *[Spoken]*
(Recess!)
Yeah, monkey bars and tag are in full effect (recess!)
Uh, huh (recess!)
I ain’t ready Tom!
Not ready! (recess!)
Not ready yet
Well ready or not man
Oh no, here is comes!

Verse 1: It’s half past one now
I know something bad’s ‘bout to come (yeah)
Yo, situation is serious
It’s something that the kids like to call fun (tell’em)
It’s oh so beautiful
This playground time it seems from the start (yeah, mmhmm)
It’s also deadly
Cuz let’s face it, kids always aren’t that smart (mmhmm)
Check it out

Chorus: It’s drivin’ me outta my mind
Can’t stand this crazy playground time
That kid just busted his chest
Please ma’am, go get, the nurse
(Wrong move he’s dead)
Man I hate recess!
Never trust the kids with it again
Man, I hate recess! (Recess!)

Verse 2: If they were smart they wouldn’t do that
Before they start to break their bones, you know?
Cuz it is a fact
Noses sure to break when a ball’s thrown
They will cry
They’ll drive you right outta your mind
But in five secs they are fine
Beware of climbin’, “Oh, please get off that Simon!”
You’ll have to move fast, you need lightnin’ timin’
Ooh!

Rap 1: Recess, deadly, movin’ so quick
Lookin’ at the wild child get real sick
Gettin’ mad fast, so better lay low
Just so my Fox40 whistle don’t blow
The dough’s so slow to be watchin’ these kids though
Seein’ the kids playin’, huh, they playin’ me
But they know I’m the teacher (How do you know?)
I’ll spank their ass with that meter

Breakdown: (Recess! Recess! Recess!)
Recess!
(Recess!)
Recess, recess, recess, re-recess
Re-re-re-recess
Recess, recess, recess, re-recess
Re-re-re-recess
Recess, recess, recess, re-recess
Re-re-re-recess
Recess, recess, recess, re-recess
Re-re-re-recess
Recess!

Rap 2: We got monkey bars, swings, things and hula-hoop rings
All the time, hard balls they fling
Checkin’ out the playground
The highs, the lows
Keepin’ both eyes open, still stayin’ on toes
There was one particular kid that was worse than the rest
Stupid as can be, got one broken chest
Mr. Jones here and I’ll ready the car
To the E-R [Child crying]
Now you know
Re-cess blows!

Chorus: It’s drivin’ me outta my mind
Can’t stand this crazy playground time
That kid just busted his chest
Please ma’am, go get, the nurse
(Wrong move he’s dead)
Man I hate recess! (Hooo!)(Recess!)
(Whoo!)(Recess!)
Never trust the kids with it again
Recess! (Recess!)
(Recess!) It’s dangerous
Recess! Hooo yeah! (Recess!)
Hooo yeah! (Recess!)
(Recess!) Recess!

Outro: *[Spoken]*
You teachers that was another rough one
You know what I’m sayin’ bro?
Yeah, 9-1-1 in full effect
Yo wassup to Tech. T., and Doctor G.
And I can’t forget about my girl, Nurse Brown
And the whole ER crew

Recess!
Ah, nooooooooooooo!
Wah, hah

I always like the OS so this one was a really fun read.

Blayde - Sounds like playground duty at school (and I KNOW what that is!). Nice job. ;D

(Ages) Great subject, and hilarious, but... pacing wasn't great to say the least and the wording was a little clunky... 3-5-4.

(Ages 2) Nice of you to share your experience as a summer day camp counselor! As a kid you would enjoy recess, but being in charge of children during free time can be a real pain. I remember as a kid at day camp, most of the kids would pick on me and our counselors would throw major tempers and frustrations towards the kids and the bus aide and driver who took me and the kids to day camp would have a head ache and would yell "SHUT UP!! I DON'T WANT TO BE A MEAN AIDE!" because we'd be out of control and she'd have to take some Asprin because of us. From what I read from your parody, it looked like a reenactment of an Attica prison riot, especially with that kid's busted chest. Anyways, great job on that one and this one looks pretty hard to spoof, but you sure had the great effort to try it.

Only heard the OS once before, but you did a great job describing the best part of the school day

Loved recess back in the day. Another good song from the past. I enjoyed your take on it

(AofA) A cracked chest?! OWWWWWWW! LOL! Funny funny funny.

(Ages) Decent parody, irritating OS. Like Andria said, the pacing was bit off here and there and your wording was weird in places, but otherwise this was still good. Also: busted chest? How does that work exactly? I'm guessing that's either a nasty cut or some broken ribs or something. Maybe saying "broken leg" would've made a bit more sense (not to mention being something that could more easily happen during recess). Whatever. 5's for you!

AGES...I thought this was fun. I have a mental image of a bunch of hooligan kids at the playground in the video...haha. Lots of smiles...my favorite line, "Oh, please get off that Simon!”
