Hey Dude, don't take it so bad.
Take that C plus and make it better.
Remember to practice a helluva lot,
Then you can start to make it all better.

Hey Dudette, don't be afraid.
You'll get that A plus sooner or later.
The minute you try to write with that pen,
Then you can begin to make it all better.

And anytime you feel the pain, hey, stay sane!
Anything worth doing is hard - oh, what a boulder!
For well you know you shouldn't ever drool on the stool,
Don't let your mind go all splatter.

Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah,
Nah, nah, nah, nah!

Hey Dudette, don't let me down,
You found that A minus, so go ahead and celebrate later.
Remember to continue to practice a lot,
Then you can start to make it even better.

So let it out and let it in, hey D, begin,
You're waiting for the good grades to lead with.
But don't you know that it's up to you, only you to,
Get the marks for you to carry on your shoulder.

Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah,
Nah, nah, nah, nah! Yeah? Well... yeah!

Hey Dude, well wouldya look at that!
There's that B plus - it was bound to appear!
I told you! Practice, practice, practice, then you'll begin,
To make it better, better, better, better, better, better, Wow!

Nah, nah, nah, nahnahnahnah! Nahnahnahnah, Dudette! (Yeah! Yeah! Ya ya ya ya ya ya!)
Nah, nah, nah, nahnahnahnah! Nahnahnahnah, it was you!
Nah, nah, nah, nahnahnahnah! Nahnahnahnah, hey Dude! (Dude! Like dude! Wow! Ow ow ow ow!)
Nah, nah, nah, nahnahnahnah! Nahnahnahnah, it was all you! (Oh my, my my!)
Nah, nah, nah, nahnahnahnah! Nahnahnahnah, hey Dude! (Dude, dude, duty duty duty dude!)
Nah, nah, nah, nahnahnahnah! Nahnahnahnah, it was you! (Yeah, yeah, yeah!)
Nah, nah, nah, nahnahnahnah! Nahnahnahnah, Dudette! (Yeah, you knew you're gonna make it, Dudette, you're always gonna ace it!)

There was you, teacher - the meanest, the most incredibly horrid,
The strictest thorn I've ever had the displeasure of knowing.
Your scowl could crack a smile that dared to grin,
Sap the courage out of these brave set of lips.

What made you so intensely sharp, I wonder.
Your reputation proceeded you throughout these halls.
I'd heard stories of you and of course of the rumors.
They say, you had no sympathy - none whatsoever - none at all.

But you made us pay close attention.
You demanded that we cared.
You took none of our silly nonsense.
But you gave us what you would share.
Although I never appreciated the effort you made back in that little room,
I see now we are who we are because of what you did to help us overcome.

Then there was you, teacher - the loudest, the most petrifyingly deafening,
The scariest figure I'd ever had the misfortune of meeting.
Your quiet was like a calm before the storm,
An unerring expectation of a hurricane cyclone.

What made you so snarlingly stark, I wonder.
Your Cerberus eyes and your stare was quick to silence.
I'd make no contact lest the gorgon flash struck me frozen.
Stayed on the other side - out of the way - if I'd had some sense anyway.

But you made sure we paid fully with our attention.
Your demanded fee was our complete comprehension.
You parried our flying nonsense with your witty tongue.
We took delight in the high velocity intelligence ping-pong.
Though I was shockingly mortified to be caught off guard by you in that classroom,
I see now you cared a lot more about us than you would ever admit or even let on.

And then there was also you, teacher - the strangest, the most aloof and yet lucid,
The calmest easy-going character of commanding sagacity.
You never raised a decibel but you knew how to work a crowd,
How did that happen - I pondered - for we could be so very loud.

What made you so very peculiar, I wonder.
You didn't care what anyone thought, at least it seemed as if it was so.
You casually brushed aside our snide comments and our snickering about.
Kept right on topic and politely asked us to kick ourselves out.

But you captivated us with your interesting ways.
You didn't lift a finger - so to speak - to make us care.
Your engagement was better entertainment than the sordid distractions.
We eagerly wanted to know what you had to say, to be fair.
Though it was not always easy to be taught by you in those days,
I see now that our futures were your main concern.

And for these things and more, I think you're awesome.
Your devotion to our education is more than what anyone could have asked for.
Keep doing what you do, teachers.
Because this means a whole lot more than you could ever possibly know.

Well, we've got no choice but to find our voice,
To make a lot of noise, whether we're girls or boys,
Waiting for the school to be out fo-da-summa,
To get our soma, psyche-D fields fo-eva.

"Jiggly Nuts, I choose you!" Confused? So very confused.
Forgive us father, for we know not what it means.
Know not what it means. Know not what it means.
Do you know what it means? Do you know what I mean?
I'll tell you. It means, Yeah... Algae's in bloom.

We pledge our allegiance to the flag,
To the united colors of, hold on - what's the current fad?
Singing our unity songs, mouthing them along,
Skinner us Crabtree! Oh say, can you see?

"Debt is good! Gammas wear green!" Confused? So very confused.
Forgive us father, for we know not what it means.
Know not what it means. Know not what it means.
Do you know what it means? Do you know what I mean?
I'll tell you. It means, Yeah... Algae's in bloom.

Intermission! We interrupt this lyrical program to bring you an urgent message.
We declare a worldwide emergency - all intelligent life on planet Earth is now endangered.
We repeat! All intelligent life on planet Earth is now endangered.
We urge all remaining brain cells to activate and to reverse the current trend.
We call on all capable teachers to do what they can to stop the damage.
Together intelligent life can and will return to acceptable levels.
For the sake of the children (oh, won't somebody please think of the children), do what you can!
Thank you for your undivided and supportive attention.
We return you now to your pleasant lullaby program.

Got it bad, got it bad, got it bad,
Terrible grammar, Y U BN SO SUS TCHA?
Don't stand, don't stand so, don't stand so close to me!
We gon make mo mun-EE in a yEE-a, than you make in yo life, tEEE-cha!

"Make it rain, don't hate da playa!" Confused? So very confused.
Forgive us father, for we know not what it means.
Know not what it means. Know not what it means.
Do you know what it means? Do you know what I mean?
I'll tell you. It means, Yeah... Algae's in bloom.

O say, does that star spangled banner yet wave,
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
Who dares to believe that two plus two equals four?
Blasphemy! Double plus ungood to be wrongly thinking so.

"But there are four bloody lights!" Confused? So very confused.
Forgive us father, for we know not what it means.
Know not what it means. Know not what it means.
Do you know what it means? Do you know what I mean?
I'll tell you. It means, Yeah... Mustard's in bloom.
