Don't laugh, I have written a filk.

<fx:sniggers>

Oi!

Mmm, I'm having a lovely week of tests which have no purpose other than as practice for more tests and so I thought why revise, when you can filk? Well, I actually thought 'I can't really moan about these tests because they aren't all that important so instead I'll write a filk. And ta-da! Here it is. The words should fit the song because I made an arse of myself singing along with the song in my bedroom to check.

To the tune of the excellent (or at least excellent IMO) Turn It On Again by Genesis.

All I need is a bit more time,
That and a working mind.
I cannot concentrate, I cannot concentrate
I can't answer, I can't answer, most of the questions on this page
I can't answer, I can't answer, most of the questions on this page
It's driving me mad, I could have answered the questions yesterday
I, I forget everything in a test,
I...

It's just another thing that I forgot when I revised,
I skipped past it in the rush to learn, the things I should have known,
Revising was no use to me, I did not learn anything
Could I do this on another day, I want to fly away
I can't answer, I can't answer, most of the questions on this page
I can't answer, I can't answer, most of the questions on this page
It's driving me mad, I could have answered the questions yesterday
I, I forget everything in a test,
I...

I hate tests, I hate tests, I hate tests a lot
I hate tests, I hate tests, I hate tests a lot
I hate tests, I hate tests, I hate tests a lot
I hate tests, I hate tests, I hate tests a lot
