The Lyrics

It's practice day
My coach made me remember
I awake and groan
Gazing from my locker
To the field below
I do fifty push-ups, make the muscles grow
I am a jock
I am an ath-el-e-ete

I've built arms
I have biceps thick and mighty
That none will think is not great
I have no need for study
Study causes strain
For football practice I don't need a brain
I am a jock
I am an ath-el-e-ete

Don't use big words
Just two syllables or less
I don't have much memory
And if you give me numbers
I add them, can't divide
For when I said I passed in math I lied
I am a jock
I am an ath-el-e-ete

And a Jock causes pain
And the steroids build the thighs

An excellent display of parody presentation. Oh, wait, you said, "Don't use big words." In that case -- Dude! Way to go!

That was a brilliant parody. I'm just not sure all the Jocks I know would get it!
