The Lyrics

I'm at
My brain it gets crunched- at the finish line
essay writing I'm fighting the time
The clock keeps ticking, my eyes close up
chugging, and slugging, Red Bull in my cup
My mind is man-u-er, my mind just went blank
Write a full report and the topics banks?
Manage-ment styles, Its what I must learn
the styles are diff'rent, the pages turn
Now I'm dang near the finish, the sun went down
It came back up, its caffeine I drown
My word bank is empty- I filled my trash can
Eyes bleeding, I'm reading, it wasn't the plan
The paper stares down and its horns just went up
Some time ago I realized that I'd been dupped
but still trying while driving and heading to work
and thinking of something though I write in jerks

Can't finish the sentence
Which word do I need?
This quote kinda moans
stands alone A.P.A. it needs
Because I'm thinking, and blinking, but passing this course
I'm writing, and styling, and typing, no remorse
Must finish the setence

No ref'rence, no abstract, no footnotes, no bind,
They're needed, required, hope my teacher's kind
The past makes my head shake Was Deming a force?
Read on him, learn from him Can I pass this course?
Learn the terms that I'm writing, Hope to get an A
Really hoping just to get it in the tray

Write 'bout planning and manning and ethical chores
I'm sighing and crying and my hands have gone coarse
Bring the COGS* down and TQM* Up
Got to fit in Control, Cycles? Yup!
but I'm nearing a clearing this paper's almost turnt
and typing with such speed that my fin-ger's burnt

I must finish the sentence
The last page, I can see
Can't use the phone
Nope-no phone; no life lines for me

Because that's cheating, completing no repeating this course
I'm typing and writing and styling with full force
Keys heating, from beating, I think that word sounds worse
Its ending, I'm sending, and citing every source
I finished the setence
I did so indeed
I finished the sentence

ooh no
Next week
oh no
oooh noo
no no

Mmmmm....Cake. My favorite. Seriously, I love this song, and you definitely nailed the pacing. I'd be lying if I said I laughed my ass off, but it was a smooth pleasant read; nice job.

I agree with Claude on this one. The parody wasn't exactly all that funny... It read like an essay on banks. But you nailed this song and the rhyme scheme looks extremely tough on this one.

Thank you Matty and Claude, yeah this one is one of those that I aimed more at being well rounded with a good feeling funny instead of big LOL lines, that's because of the tough rhyme scheme. . .thank you both

DKTOS, but I can tell from the layout of the lines that the pacing is good and tight. Since what I know about economics wouldn't even fill a price tag I did the Dumb Brunette Laughing thing, which still makes it well worthy of a 555. Nicely done... although I don't think I'll be joining you on that economics course anytime soon... :^)
