Your Stalker

The Lyrics

Listen. I'm young, sugar-obsessed, and a fast typer with a half-decent word alingment. Aside from that, I was listening to American Pie for 7 hours when I wrote this. Have fun, and don't forget I'm watching you. Hence the name 'Your Stalker'.
American Pie Parody

Not too long ago, of course I can remember how
That teacher used to make us die
And I knew if she could just leave
Then we wouldn't have Geology,
And maybe we'd be happy for a while.

But school days made me shiver,
With every 'F' that she delivered
Bad news on the report Card
I'd have to send her to the freak ward!

I can't remember if I tried
When I studied 'bout those odd landslides
But something scared me deep inside
The day my grades had died.

So... bye, bye, Oh Geology! Die!
Annoyed my teacher
Really freaked 'er
And we let out a sigh
And good ol' math would be the next one to fry?
That was the day Geology died,
Yes, the happy day Geology died!

Did you write the book of math?
And do you try to skip in PE class
If your classmates tell you so

Do you believe in Recess Break?
And those snacks with the logo 'Lunch Mates'
And can you tell me if it'll ever snow?

Well in Volleyball we didn't win
But we played real good in our own gym
Too bad that we did lose
And some of us got the blues

I was a carefree pre-teen with lotsa luck
And a father with a yellow truck
It looked good even when caked in muck
The day that teacher fried!

I started singin'...

So... bye, bye, Oh Geology! Die!
Annoyed my teacher
Really freaked 'er
And we let out a sigh
And good ol' math would be the next one to fry?
That was the day Geology died,
Yes, the happy day Geology died!

Now in ten years we'll be on our own
We'll get us jobs and move outta home
But that's not how it'll used to be

When the Kinders sang for the parent team
With a song they stole off Don McLean
And a teacher that came from UBC

While the principal was looking down
I bunny-eared his balding crown
LA was postponed
our homework didn't return

While we went and ate our lunch
The Choir huddled in a bunch
and the teachers drank their lemon punch
The day that subject died!


So... bye, bye, Oh Geology! Die!
Annoyed my teacher
Really freaked 'er
And we let out a sigh
And good ol' math would be the next one to fry?
That was the day Geology died,
Yes, the happy day Geology died!

Helter-skelter in a summer swelter
Footballs flew into the Kinders' shelter
The players ran and fled quite fast

Their reputation still fouled from the past
The players cried for a punishment-pass
With that smart guy on the sidelines doing math

Now the lunchtime air was sweet perfume
While seagulls honked an awkward tune
None of us bothered dance
Not like we had the chance

'Cause the teachers tried to take the field,
The student body refused to yield,
Do you recall what was revealed,
The day our grades had died?

We started singing...

So... bye, bye, Oh Geology! Die!
Annoyed my teacher
Really freaked 'er
And we let out a sigh
And good ol' math would be the next one to fry?
That was the day Geology died,
Yes, the happy day Geology died!

There they were all in one place
A generation to soon graduate
No time left to start again?
Oh, come on summer, please be quick
Or else we'll start breakin' bricks
'Cause bricks are the school board's only friend!

As the Talent Show played on the stage
The performers there wore clothes of beige
No telephone from Dell
Could break me outta there!

And as the show kept on into the noon
We swore that we'd be out there soon
I was thinking that I sure was doomed
The day my patience died.


So... bye, bye, Oh Geology! Die!
Annoyed my teacher
Really freaked 'er
And we let out a sigh
And good ol' math would be the next one to fry?
That was the day Geology died,
Yes, the happy day Geology died!

I met a girl with brand-new shoes
I told her of CNN's news
But she quirked a brow and turned away

I went down to the music store
Where American Pie I'd heard before
But the man there said the music wouldn't play

And in the streets the pigeons clucked
Rabid dogs barked and ran amuck
But not a word was spoken
Of the plane that we had flown in

And the two things I knew the most
How to spell 'cat' and pronouce 'cloak'
Those skills ain't nothing but a ghost
The day the school year died.

I was left singing...


So... bye, bye, Oh Geology! Die!
Annoyed my teacher
Really freaked 'er
And we let out a sigh
And good ol' math would be the next one to fry?
That was the day Geology died,
Yes, the happy day Geology died!

Could do with a little straightening out just to neaten up the pacing - otherwise, good work, well done!

I thought that was a very witty parody. The song didn't follow well in the 2nd verse, but overall, it followed the original well. I especially enjoyed the rhymes that you had with the original song. Great song. I'd enjoy trying to sing it again sometime soon.
