The Lyrics

defenestrate means: to throw out a window
As I walk through the halls to my very first class
I hear the bell ring and I don't have a pass
That's just perfect for a senior like me
You know I hate boring things like trigonometry
At 6:20 in the morning I'm waking up
My dad had his coffee and he's pourin' me a cupfool
And I've been goin' to school so long
That all my teachers think my mind is gone
I'm a moron in the school; I'm into snoring
Got a textbook on my desk and my teacher is boring
But if I finish all of my work and you finish yours
Then tonight we're gonna study all about the World Wars

We've spent four years of our lives
Going to a high school paradise
I've been flunked once or twice
Going to a high school paradise
There's hard work and sacrifice
Going to a high school paradise
They sell bad food at a worse price
Going to a high school paradise

A local bully kicked me in the butt last week
I flicked him off and turned the other cheek
I really don't care and I don't wish him well
I'll be laughing my head off when he's stuck in a cell
But I never punched a teacher even if he deserved it
A student with a 'tude, you know that's unheard of
I don't do classwork and I can't wear a hat
But all will agree
This teacher's a hack, fool!
If you're forced to visit you'll be bored to tears
We haven't even done our homework in 300 years
But we ain't really bright, so please don't point and stare
We're just intellectually impaired

There's no cell phones, walkmans, laser lights
Not a single commodity
Writing reports for English
It's as boring as can be

We've spent four years of our lives
Going to a high school paradise
This isn't a plain and simple "guise
Going to a high school paradise
There's no time to socialize
Going to a high school paradise
We can't fight; we must play nice
Going to a high school paradise

Hitchin' up my trousers, hearin' someone stutter
Flunked a test on Monday, soon I'll flunk another
Think you are a genius,
Think you're really smart,
Well, I know I'm a million times as stupid as thou art
I'm the dumbest guy no one really wants to be like
In my seat day and night dreaming of the afterlife
So don't complain and don't be whiny
Or, my teacher might defenestrate your heinie

We've spent four years of our lives
Going to a high school paradise
All wrong, nothing's right
Going to a high school paradise
The hallways really need traffic lights
Going to a high school paradise
And you'd agree it really bites
Going to a high school paradise

Prepare yourself for the greatest compliment you'll ever recieve on this website: "I was actually almost convinced this was written by Wierd Al himself." No lie. Probably the most professional parody i've read. Submit this for Parody Of The Month or i will

Been writing a couple of high school parodies myself lately, but this one was better than both of those:

A heavenly ode to high school hell. You just forgot the part about "toughlove" - a euphemisim for sado-masochisim.

555. Very hard usually on rap songs to get a perfect 5 for pacing, but you didn't fail that.

This was awesome. I agree that this was "Weird Al" good. All 5's definately.

Just read 'Video Game Paradise', and you said that even yours was better than that, implying that yours sux aswell. Incorrect, monsieur, yours is the best one I've come across! I agree that rap songs are hard (see my efforts at, so good work.
