The Lyrics

Well I don;t. give a damn about my bad punctuation
Cause a misplaced, comma won't spoil my reputation;
And Ill mispel word's and I dont cair
Cause my teacher grades me fair
So I dont give a dam; bout my bad, puctuation

Oh no==Not me..,

Cannot spell type or, read cause it makes me imPAtient
I could learn that stuff but id rather take va!cation
So I speak reel good
That is what I t'ink
?So why waist no more ink
And I ,don't giv. a dam : bowt my )bad( punktuation

Oh no, not me
Oh no? not mE

Spell me, boys!

And I dont give a damn bout; my bad punkchewation
ANd I don't care that I lack...skills communication
I will try to say-what I wanna say
You ""wont understnd' anyway
So why shud I cair fore mi bad punchuwaitchon

I dont giv a! damm b*out my (badd(( pukchelatyion
What the he'lls past' tense%
I haate hyphen-ation
(And I only spell right
In my diary.
That way no one else will see
That I do give a damn
'Bout my bad punctuation!)
