The Lyrics

I must say I've never experienced this firsthand (I've never gotten below a C- on any test) but boy, was this a fun write!
Oh, my test is full of X’s, for texts I did not read...
With all my work and effort, I thought I’d least be D’d!
But that red F stares at me, and now I must decide:
Should I tell and be grounded, or try to run and hide?!

A real whiz kid or a genius, I never would be called,
But I thought I’d slip by here--my grade, it would not fall
With my skin-and-ink pen strategies, I had so deftly planned...
But this scheme would quickly falter when I would go wash my hands!

Now I will try to destroy it, that odious exam
Maybe I’ll try to eat it like it was a piece of ham?
Or since it’s now December, I know what plan I will take:
I’ll take some shears and cut a big paper snowflake!

I’ll need heaps of extra credit to make up for this bomb
(And I had plumb forgotten it must be signed by Mom!)
Though integrity I’d undermine, right now I do suppose
That my ancient, cranky teacher likes when her students brownnose!

Oh no! Here come my parents! Now a conference ensues...
They talk about my math skills (and none of it I knew)
Teach recommends a tutor, I tremble like a mouse
Yet my parents are rejoicing, since I won’t be ‘round the house!

Now I’m stuck here with this big kid, who really cracks the whip
Ensuring with my homework, no problems I will skip
Though it’s evident that I’m not fine, I must show him respect...
‘Cause my test with all those X’s made me this here dude’s project!

Analyzing your parody writing skills, Methinks you probably ARE a genius or whiz kid in school. And having spent many years previously in Texas, the Longhorn state theme was a great choice for this beauty.

(AGES) I know how you feel...about writing a parody about being stupid when you're a recognised smart-ass! Well done, Miss Cat!

Looks like you were in Mr. Sanders' class (in-joke). And of course I always like songs about Texas.

Seeing as Agri's just taken "X-ellent", I'll have to say "X-ceptional", or just Xtremely good :-D

Ah, brings me lovingly back to my high school days, when my goal was to wear out the teacher's red pen by the end of the year. Well done!

(SOTM) you're such a talented writer and humourist Cat, that the expectationas are alwzzzxxxays high, so I thought "eat it like it was a piece of ham" really clunked because I could see you thinking "yeah that rhyme will do" when I'm sure you could have come up with a better one - other than that, the subs and storyline are testament to the depth of creativity in your fertile brain - 555

SOTM - I agree with Stu on the "piece of ham" line being a little substandard compared to the rest, but I won't flunk you over it.

(SOTM) I find myslf agreeing with McArthur a lot in this contest (erk!)...the ham line was a fumble, Cat (see, when you write as well as you do, you can't get away with ANYTHING ;-))...but the rest was sublime. 555
