Somebody I Used To Copy Off: An Original Song By Zachary Krishef
Now and then I remember the times I had tests and quizzes
They were really hard; I never knew what to do
I didn’t study at all- Too busy playing video games!
So I looked over someone’s shoulder and COPIED!
I cheated, I cheated, I cheated so much!
From dawn to dusk I spied on my seat neighbor!
His name was Fred, and he was an academic genius!
Too busy studying to see I was copyin’
In preschool, I cheated on my building blocks test.
Stole some counterfeit blocks from the neighborhood kids
Made the word “academic” and got a gold star
I’m a CHEATER, I’m a CHEATER!
In kindergarten, we had nap time.
I CHEATED on my nap time!
Stole a pillow, and pretended it was my head!
When the pillow was caught, I thought I was dead!
Got away with it, now I cheat every day!
I’m in COLLEGE
Fred is my seat neighbor, again
Blocks his tests with a folder
I HAVE A PERISCOPE! (I’m a cheater….)
I’m a CHEATER, I’m a CHEATER, I’m a CHEATER so much!
It’s fun, it’s easy, and I never get in trouble!
See, kids- Never do your own work!
Now I have a job and I’m cheating on my taxes!
Fred is my boss- he figured out I was cheating.
Getting fired now, karma got to me
IRS is interrogating me, I say I’m not a member of the Tea Party (Note: Yes, this is a heavy-handed attempt at current event satire. Just go with it; This is a satirical song.)
In jail now and I feel sad.
This is just to show you
Cheating is for losers!
I thought I was a winner, now I’m on death row!
**Note: I have never cheated, but I know it will not end up with you on Death Row. Still, don’t cheat. -Zach
