The Lyrics

The teacher said that we had to write a long paper
It was in science and it had to be about vapor
But then we cried and tried and tried to make her take it back
And still she said that it was due and that we had to read
In front, talking bout everybody
Now you're saying I must speak clearly, No
Now you're saying it's your everything
I'm having no fun
Punctuation, education, for graduation

So dot your I's, cross your t's
And your I's before e's
Except when its after a C, then e's before I's
So dot your I's, cross your t's
And your I's before e's
Don't get me started on parentheses

I remember when I was sittin home alone
Writing this thing til 3 o'clock in the 'morn
And when mom came home I'd always have some lame excuse
I kept writing but even then it was no use
I sacrificed the things I loved just to write that thing for you
Still no radio or T.V.
Did it all for you
Now I'm on word one hundred and three
Now you have the audacity
But I wanna have time for me
I'm having no fun, with punctuation
My education, for graduation cause

[Repeat Chorus 2x]

I remember when I was sittin home alone
Writing this thing till 3 o'clock in the 'morn
Hour after hour writing something really wrong
Wasn't long before I be done
Lord knows it wasn't easy believe me
Never thought I'd get it done, but yet so cheesy
And never thought I would get it done
You'd better give me an A, cause it was no fun

[Repeat Chorus]
Gotta stop trying to correct me please
[Repeat Chorus]
It's a comma baby so use it right
