The Lyrics

This is a little flashback to 4th grade. The whole grade had this competition to see which homeroom were the ultimate champions at "Where in the USA is Carmen San Diego?", the computer game. Lame, right. Well, the teachers made a huge deal out of it to tie in with what we were learning, so they made a championship game during recess. I took part in it, because I was one of the top players in my homeroom. Sadly, team 4B lost. Here's a recollection of the tournament, set to the music of the Almighty WHO!
We'll give up recess to find you
We'll give up all free time we have
Play the game & Make our social studies teachers glad

We're up against other homerooms
A pizza luncheon, we want bad
We'll win this and get angry suspects nabbed

We're gonna find Carmen
The best the teachers had
The best the teachers had!

Where in the US can we find you?
Come on, let's give it all we got.
Let's go team, The other homerooms are on top
We got every chance just to win this
We all got good players, not bad
What'cha know? Let's interrogate that virtual man.

We're gonna find Carmen
We're gonna get her bad
We're gonna get her BAD!

Let's plan our rebound
We look out their faces with fear
We know we'll win nothing
Without help
Oh crap, we're not in Chicago
We're in Lexington
And we're looking for´┐Ż
That team's ahead by 3!
Oh, we're gonna lose!

We sadly lost competition
The other homeroom got the lunch
Sore losers, please teammates, don't get mean and punch
We really didn't have to win it
Impressive 4th graders, not bad
And teamwork, we little kids lended our hands

We failed to find Carmen
We feel so very bad
But we gave all we had!

Great stuff. I used to watch the game show but never played the computer game. But I liked this anyway, 5's
