The Lyrics

Teachers always say there's "No such thing has as a dumb question"... Well, I beg to differ!
Dumb questions, Don’t ask
Dumb questions, Don’t ask
Dumb questions, Don’t ask
Dumb questions, Don’t ask

Derp! Derp!

Cause every teacher says this to her class
If you think it’s too hard then say so!
But after lecturing these idiots
Single cell creatures know more things
Asked “We don’t eat grass…
But why the heck not?”
“How long’s an inch?
“How long’s a ruler?
How can you measure that?
Scratched their heads all day…

Dumb questions, Don’t ask
Dumb questions, Don’t ask
Hey, Yeah… Stupid classmates don’t you know sh*t?!
Dumb questions, Don’t ask!!!

Derp! Derp!

“Where is Atlantis? Why don’t we visit?”
“Why do earthworms live underground?”
“And as for pencils, How do they write?”
“Where does… The sun go each and every night?”
“Can you explain workings of magnets?”
“Scientists pissed me off!”
“Are there some words that rhyme with orange?”
They all… Scratch their heads and think
But they’re too blonde

These people aren’t very bright
“That’s that noise when I play the rife?”
“Why are there bubbles in my Sprite?”
“Why do seatbelts hold you so tight?”
“What’s that thing called a megabyte?”
“That’s just a big lunch? Am I right?”
“Why are old shows on Nick At Nite?
“How did birds learn to go take flight?”

Dumb questions, Don’t ask
Dumb questions, Don’t ask

Oy Vey!
You guys are really no Einstein
Your brain’s a smear
Dumb questions, Don’t ask


Dumb questions, dumb questions, dumb questions
Don’t ask

Dumb questions, Don’t ask!

“What’s a mime?
Why can’t it speak?”

Hey there all of you dummies
Go pick up a book!

Dumb questions, Don’t ask!

Merry's dumb question (spoken in a whiny kid tone): What's a rife, and how do you play it?

Derp! With all of this stupidity on my mind my hand was forced to make a typo. Obviously, That's meant to be "fife" not "rife" not too sure what a "rife" is. Maybe I should invent that musical instrument instead of fixing the spelling error just so it's accurate.

Heh heh: “Where is Atlantis? Why don’t we visit?” I know my teachers would have replied "Be my guest..."

Fun parody! As for me, I never ask dumb questions. Dumb answers are my field of expertise.

Very funny Matthias - love the list parodies too. fave line: Why are old shows on Nick At Nite? - whoever Nick is. Ask your friend Eva L. why he can't show her shows for a change - esp from Season One

Hate to say it, but my parody was rife with typos as well. :) Duno, but I thought those were reasonable questions. :)

I thought Atlantis was the capitol of Georgia. Fun idea!

(Artistry) Just be thankful these were just dumb students and not dumb people on Youtube asking how to make babby. And honestly, effing magnets, how DO they work? Great parody here, 555!

hmmm. . Matt, these questions aren't 'dumb' enough . . .I mean they are interesting questions really that science can explain but its not like asking "am I dead?", but okay
