The Lyrics

It's not far down to flunking
At least it's not for me
If the answer's right you'll get an A
And pass the test with ease
I cannot do miracles
But I hope to get a C
Believe me

It's not far to dropping out
Won't make it to grade ten
If my counselor's right he'll tell me
"Take the class again"
I cannot do miracles
But I hope to get a C
Believe me

Takes me away
To summer school where I will be
Just a passing grade to carry me
And soon I will be free

It gets the best of me
When I'm failing
Can't catch up in the studying
Every word is a mystery
Won't you believe me

It's not far back to misery
At least it's not for me
And when the answer's wrong you'll be in school
For all eternity
I cannot do miracles
But I hope to get a C
Believe me
You can substitute "chemistry" with "history", "biology" or any other class that gave you trouble.
