We don't like essays

Parody of "I don't like Mondays": The Boomtown Rats
Could be done as a choral number with sections...

The silicon chip inside her head
Gets switched to overload
And nobody’s gonna go to school today
She’s gonna make them stay at home
And daddy doesn’t understand it
He always said she was good as gold
And he can see no reasons
'Cos there are no reasons
What reason do you need to be show-ow-ow-ow-own?

Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
I wanna shoo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oot the whole day down

The Telex machine is kept so clean
And it types to a waiting world
And mother feels so shocked
Father’s world is rocked
And their thoughts turn to their own little girl
Sweet 16 ain’t that peachy keen
Now that ain’t so neat to admit defeat
They can see no reasons
'Cos there are no reasons
What reasons do you need?
Oh Oh Oh Oh

Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
I wanna shoo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oot
The whole day down, down, down, shoot it all down

And all the playing's stopped in the playground now
She wants to play with the toys a while
And school's out early and soon we'll be learning
And the lesson today is how to die
And then the bullhorn crackles
And the captain tackles
(With the problems of the how's and why's)
And he can see no reasons
'Cos there are no reasons
What reason do you need to die, die?
Oh Oh Oh

Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like
I don’t like (Tell me why)
I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why

I don’t like
I don’t like (Tell me why)
I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why
I don't like Mondays
I wanna shoo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oot the whole day down





The lecturer starts the class at ten
And tells us of a task
Assignments that we'll receive today
We've gotta do if we're to pass
I see the horrified expressions
On their faces throughout the class
The project was an essay
“What the hell?” An essay
And the lecturer wanted to kno-ow-ow-ow-ow

What is wrong
We don’t like essays
Won't take long!
We don’t like essays
Why this song?
We don’t like essays
We wanna bur-ur-ur-ur-ur-urn them to the ground


Analyse genes or add fifteen
but we can't compare contrast
With a computer
Grammar gets gooder
But I ditched English over two years past
Adjecteaves make me want to heave
Like a simile they're the end of me
The mark is subjective
And is not objective
We really think that blow-ow-ow-ow-ows

That is why
We don’t like essays
Hear us cry
We don’t like essays
Can't deny
We don't like essays
We wanna bur-ur-ur-ur-ur-urn
Them to the ground, ground, ground, burn them all down
 
All the weeks have passed and its due today
None of us have really done the work
Our ship is sinking and now we’re thinking
That the lecturer is a total jerk
Then the coffee kicks in
And revision begins
And we're starting now to hope it's scaled
Then we look at the question
We don't get the question
We’re heading for an epic fail fail
fa-ai-ail.

That is why
We don’t like essays
in reply
we don’t like essays
we imply
We don’t like
We don’t like (make's us sigh)
We don’t like essays
till we die
We don’t like
We don’t like (on the sly)
We don’t like essays
by the by
We won't like essays
We wanna bur-ur-ur-ur-ur-urn them to the ground
