"What I Go to School For"
Better Lyrics:
That’s what I go to work for
'Cos it's all about survival

My kids are getting rickets

Even though it is a real bore
You can call me crazy
I know that she craves me

"Year 3000"
Better Lyrics:
One Day
When I left home
At breakfast
I smelt a funny smell
Went out, to the front yard
To find out
If someone lit our barbecue
Stood there
Was Charlotte, and Scarlett and a blobby cake
They said that they'd broke our barbecue
They'd buy us a new one too
No, no.

They said they'd been to the barbecue shop
Not much has changed but the prices have gone up
And the great great great granddaddy, of barbecues
Is pretty old
Original Lyrics:
One day
When I came home
At lunchtime
I heard a funny noise
Went out, to the back yard
To find out
If it was one of those rowdy boys
Stood there
Was my neighbour, called Peter and a Flux Capasitor
He told me he built a time-machine
Like one in a film I've seen

He said I've been to the year 3000
Not much has changed but they live underwater
And your great-great-great-granddaughter, is pretty fine
Is pretty fine

Boasting in Song Lyrics:

"Year 3000"
The Boasting Lyrics:
I took a trip to the year 3000, This song had gone multi-platinum, everybody bought our seventh album, it had outsold Michael Jackson
Wow, talk about shameless self-promotion by claiming this song would go multi platinum (It only went single platinum) and claiming to outsell Michael Jackson. Guess what? A seventh album never happened and the two albums they did make didn't even get close to album unit's sold by Jackson.
