The Lyrics

S-K-O-O-L , a bad start
In English class today
J-O-K , moke, it ain't no joke
It's proofreading that eludes you (heck yeah)

You-ou can't spell
Can't you spell hotel?
You-ou can't spell
The Spell Police, they all hound you

A-P-U-L is not right, dude
For that "apple", bless your heart (you fool, you)
M-A-I-L a bloke? "T-O-O" isn't "dos"
I do think school has failed you

You-ou can't spell
It's your hell to spell
You-ou can't spell
T-H-R-U, it's not through

Don't you find it alarming
Can't spell those words, even the word "foods"
L-I-T-E ain't light, full of sorrow
'Cause G-R-O-S is a gross boo-boo

You-ou can't spell
Time now to ring the bell
You-ou can't spell
To spell these words it astounds you

To stick needles in a doll?...

N-O-Y-S when you snore?

This vexing problem, it confounds you
B-R-A-N-E you lack
It S-U-X, lord, it makes me sick
It's interesting how you spell S-T-Y-X (heck yeah)

You-ou can't spell
S-P-E-L, oh well
You-ou can't spell
That spelling myth is on you

You-ou can't spell
B-E-L, a bell?
You-ou can't spell
Favorite color is B-L-U

Oh pooh, it's true
Don't think this problem is a charm
Go back to school, back to school, back to school
Give it one more year, one more year, gotta go...

Anybody else see the irony of doing this parody to a song by Lynyrd Skynyrd? Christie: You may want to check with John Barry to use the comment!

Crap...I just realized I spelled Lynyrd Skynyrd wrong! (damn rednecks! :))

Haha... I like the side joke of having a typo as the artist name. Even though you probably didn't mean to you can tell people you did that for comedic effect. Well done as always Aggy!

Misspelling the artists name could be seen as a common misspelling though unlike the examples in this song. This one was good Agri, a little on the simple side, but good

(Artistry) Not really LOL-funny, but still pretty good for a topic without much humour to be found within. I hope that sentence makes sense. 555 and stuff!

(Artistry) This is what texting has done to a generation. Lovely idea well executed.

Not only that Rex, have you seen IM and the chat room?

(ABC) Just the mere subject matter made me laugh. I laughed locks... or lotts... or lauts... or whatever.

Not a huge fan of the OS, but this was a really smart parody that made me laugh quite a bit. It was difficult to follow the pacing in a few places where you had to spell out the words, but I trust that everything is in order. Nice work!
