800 Years For NOTHING

I sat in algebra class one day
And my teacher began to lecture us on Pythagorean Theorem
I yelled, "TALK LOUDER MR. HAYES!"
Because I couldn't hear him.

He said, "Oh no, I don't know What I'mma gonna do wit you..."
I said, "But I...?"
And he said, "NO TALKIN!
Just get outta this classroom."

So I picked up my stuff and went into the hall
And it wasn't too long before I could here him call
"DON'T JUS' STAND THERE! GO SEE DA PRINCIPAL!"

So I stomped downstairs into her office
And she looked at me, angry and hurt
"Ignorant child," she began with disgust,
"This is going to court."

So I went to court
And they said that I had no respect for the law
Or anything else
How could I?
Yelling out in class.

They couldn't decide on the death penalty
Or 800 years instead
Which would be better?
To imprison me or shoot me in my ignorant little head?

Eventually after much debate
They told me their decision
Because of my lawlessness and disrespect
I would spend 800 years in prison.

I spent those days carefully
So that I would survive
And even after 800 years
I would still be alive.

I couldn't believe it
When they finally said
I could go, I was free!
So I mumbled something through my false teeth
Happy, happy me!

I stepped outside
I'd done it, hurray!
Then someone yelled, "GET OUTTA THE WAY!"

I screamed "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!"
As the bus was coming
And then BANG! It hit me
800 years for NOTHING!
