Wake me up when Semester ends

Hi guys, you probably all know this song; it's always depressed me, so I thought i'd take it off. I think it would really work as a video sketch, there'd be a chance for a lot of overacting.
NB: I don't know anything about trees, so the reference to the tree in the quad might not be right. the song itself is also pretty repetitive (if you didn't already know, and something i've tried to fix) , so we might want to cut some bits.
 
Wake me up when Semester ends
 
[4 bars intro]
 
Stuvac has come to pass

The lazy ones will never last

Wake me up when Semester ends

 

Borrow notes and get to class

Thirteen weeks has gone so fast

Wake me up when Semester ends

 

Here come exams again

From the pits of hell

Last chance to cram again

Procrastinate as well

 

Can’t let my memory go

Or I’ll forget all that I know

Wake me up when Semester ends

 
[6 extra bars interlude while drums come in]
 

Flowers are falling free

From the Jacaranda tree

Wake me up when Semester ends

 

Ring out the bells again

Get me up at 4 a.m.

Wake me up when Semester ends

 

Keep up the fight again

Don’t even stop for food

One more late night again

I’m still fully screwed

 

Must give my brain a break

How long is this going to take?

Wake me up when Semester ends

 
[Instrumental interlude]
[4 bars intro again]
 

Cramming goes on all day

Don’t understand it anyway

Wake me up when Semester ends

 

Now exams have come to pass

Where did stuvac go so fast?

Wake me up when Semester ends

 

Wake me up when Semester ends

Wake me up when Semester ends

 

Original Lyrics

Summer has come and passed

The innocent can never last

Wake me up when September ends

 

Like my father’s come to pass

Seven years has gone so fast

Wake me up when September ends

 

Here comes the rain again

Falling from the stars

Drenched in my pain again

Becoming who we are

 

As my memory rests

But never forgets what I lost

Wake me up when September ends

 

Summer has come and passed

The innocent can never last

Wake me up when September ends

 

Ring out the bells again

Like we did when spring began

Wake me up when September ends

 

Here comes the rain again

Falling from the stars

Drenched in my pain again

Becoming who we are

 

As my memory rests

But never forgets what I lost

Wake me up when September ends

 

Summer has come and passed

The innocent can never last

Wake me up when September ends

 

Like my father’s come to pass

Twenty years has gone so fast

Wake me up when September ends

 

Wake me up when September ends

Wake me up when September ends
