The Lyrics

Getting away with sleeping when you shouldn't be by drawing fake eyes on your eyelids: truly an American tradition!
The class started at seven
Feels like it's been eleven
Hours later, it's totally banal
To pass the time until it ends
I'm gonna take my pen
And sleep until we all can go
First I'll ask to use the bathroom, a-and lo
I'll add like so

Eyes on my lids be-ecause I just don't care
About this shit, thi-is room is pure dead air
No one will care if I nod off for a fe-ew secs
Or at lea-east unti-il it's lu-unchtime

I'm pretty good at art with pens
A while to dry but then
Won't have to pay any attention
The trick's to make them look like real eyes
Not the glassy ty-ype
Quickly, they might think I've gone ho-ome
Should've done this crap this morning, I-I know
Damn ink smells gross

Eyes on my lids, i-it isn't just school fair
Good for long stints a-at church or work, don't care
If I sleep there, I'll use my skills as an a-artist
To catch so-ome sneaky-y Z's

Go ahead, say I'm lazy
Rat me out to ev'rybody
Just take a look and you-ou'll see
Half-awake's the norm, half of us are aslee-eep
And I'm not the-e first to be thi-is cle-ever

Eyes on my lids
Eyes on his lids
Eyes on her lids (eyes on her lids)
Drawn eyes on their lids (eyes on their lids, eyes on their lids)
Drawn eyes on our lids (eyes on our lids, eyes on our lids)

Eyes on my lids, cau-ause I just did not dare
Going to bed, a-a Pokémon so rare
Had just a hair of HP left, had to ca-atch it
And it was shiny, give me a break, you jerk
Eyes on our lids, cau-ause classwork's a nightmare
Have fun with it, dra-aw devil's eyes on there
No-one will care, so please stop throwing a hu-uge fit
Are you just that much of a gigantic nerd?
No-one will care, even the teacher's doi-ing it
So shut u-up, let me-e sleep a-alright?
I got no sleep la-ast night
This lesson's du-ull a-as shite
Drawn eyes on my lids, goo-oodnight

Facetiously claiming something as an American tradition when you're not American yourself: truly a thing that will result in quality comments on the Interwebs!

Better than writing "Love You" on your lids like in Indiana Jones lol

I've never done this (I'm normally a morning person), but it does seem like a common occurrence (at least in movies and TV). Pacing seemed off in a few places to me, but this was a fun read...I like the fact that the teacher is even doing it! Nicely done

Even better if the class is too easy, allowing you to get away with it.

Had trouble keeping up with the pacing, too. Without your explanation, I not sure I would have gotten the point of the title.

(Artistry) Decent enough parody. Didn't really go anywhere, but fun to read. I found it hard to pace at points too, but overall, a fun little spoof. Good job.
