The Lyrics

I hate detention....
Verse 1: I can’t stop, the way I am
Pulling pranks, is my scam
Tell you what I got in store
When my teacher, moves that door
A paint bucket, sure will fall
And will splatter, in the halls

Chorus: I got detention (ooh, ooh)
For one small joke (ooh, ooh)
I got detention
And now my fun is broke
(Ooh, ooh)

Verse 2: I don’t get, any rest
My friends say I’m obsessed
All my pranks, before this were blah
This will leave, my friends in awe
What I’ve done, genius it’s true
Put my teacher’s, car on the roof

Chorus: I got detention (ooh, ooh)
For my whole life (ooh, ooh)
I got detention
I don’t deserve this strife
(Ooh, ooh)

Verse 3: I won’t make it!
Through this all
No one likes
To clean men’s stalls

Chorus: I got detention (ooh, ooh)
All by myself (ooh, ooh)
I got detention
But should have got expelled
(Ooh, ooh)

Chorus: Don’t get detention (ooh, ooh)
It is not fun (ooh, ooh)
I can’t talk right now
I must wait ‘til it’s done
(Ooh, ooh)
Chorus: Some more detention (ooh, ooh)
Oh, help me please! (ooh, ooh)
I’m begging on my knees!
(Ooh, ooh)

(Ages) Very good parody about something dreaded in school, I got more than my fair share. 5s.

(Ages 2) "Breakfast Club" meets "Not Another Teen Movie" meets "The Prankster". Just relating to 3 of my fave movies relating to detention and pranks and the last one I mentioned is an Indie Film. I actually never got detention in school, but I can understand how people would feel getting that punishment. I hear having a Saturday detention is worse. I also enjoyed this one. Now I'm afraid I'm going to have to detain you with 555 votes.

I had detention before in High School and it actually wasn't all that bad. We had to be quiet and work on homework and stuff. The worst part was getting picked up by our parents who yelled at us for being bad.

The only time I've gotten detention was in 7th grade for running in the hall. I love the OS and nice job going with the original lyrics

At least you had something to do in detention, writing this song. Well done, hopefully you aren't stuck in there too long :)

(AofA) Oh please! What do you know of detention? I got detention so much by getting punches in preparedness that they named one of the chairs after me! I don't think you've ever even gotten detention. The parody is good however.

I still know the concept! DUH! And Mom and Dad think you're the smart one! Pshhhh....

(Ages) When I went to detention all I had to do was write out lines relating to what I'd done wrong. There were only five choices, so sometimes the worst part of detention was trying to figure out which pre-set line fit my wrong-doing the best. Cool parody here, 555!
