The Lyrics

Just what is this teacher talking about
While writing essays, says to space things out
I see here gleam, then I see her frown
She writes a C down, she circles some nouns

Her highlighter touches with yellow
When I see my grade I may bellow
I did-well okay-but wasn't my best
It may make me grr, but at least I passed

"Please Double-Space This"
That was my first big mistake
And watch your cases
"Your paper's opaque"

I gazed at the paper awhile
What was I thinking with this style
Now I can see that I didn't do my best
There's no use in guessing, She'll mark the rest

She marked poor lower cases
Yeah she could tell what I had faked
In the white spaces
She marks my mistakes
She marks my mistakes

As I finished my page, in red ink, "Good job Dave"
I stared at the text it says, "Good line about waves"
She said, "watch all your indentations though"
So as I glared I gathered she's a pro

I guess I should go retrace this
Read about all my mistakes
I should embrace it
Give a double take
Give a double take
She'll catch all my mistakes (Please Double Space This)
She'll catch all my mistakes
She'll catch all my mistakes (Please Double Space This)

There's no double spacing possibility between the voting categories, so I'll just stack the 5s.

BADave - Good one here, and...I heard a sample cut from your Christmas album. You've got a pretty good voice (a high compliment considering I was a music teacher for 34 years). As a karaoke addict, I KNOW there is no thrill quite like performing your own words. Bravo! ;D

It would have been funny if you double spaced your parody but as it is it still is funny.

Thank you Peter and Matthias, and that is a very high compliment OMR, especially since I always feel I come off better live than I do via the microphone, and you hit the nail on the head with that--I too am a karaoke addict, as can be seen on YouTube
