A Course With No Aim

(to the tune of “A Horse With No Name”)

On the first day of the quarter

I was reading the syllabus

It had stuff to learn and things to do

There were tests and quizzes too

 

The first thing I saw was a quick overhead

A bad . .  trans-parency

The prof was dry and his talk was terse

Many students were absentee

 

I’ve spent all the quarter in a course with no aim

It’s ridiculous I proclaim

The professor cannot remember my name

And it seems that I just disappeared from his brain

La la la la la, land la la land, la la

La la la la la, land la la land, la la

 

In the third week, I confirmed my doubt

A pain began in my head

By the fourth week, I had tuned him out

I could not get a thing he said

In the lecture he railed, like he was impaled

Made me want to go back to bed

 

And so I’ve spent all quarter in a course with no aim

It’s ridiculous I proclaim

The professor cannot remember my name

And it seems that I just disappeared from his brain

La la la la la la, land la la land, la la

La la la la la la, land la la land, la la

 

In the last week, I let my mind run free

Cuz of what I had come to see

All the info that’s there inside my brain

Is a challenge to be sustained

Knowledge as a fruit from a seed can arise

So I always need to protect

It is a pity if it’s not fertilized

It is not something I can neglect

 

And so I’ll prep for the final with a brand new campaign

Cuz I am changing my old refrain

I don’t care . . . he can’t remember my name

All I care about’s what I do with my brain

La, la, la la la la, la la, la la, la la

La, la, la la la la, la la la la la, la la

 

La la, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la

La la, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la

La la, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la

La la, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la

La, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la

La la, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la

La, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la

La la, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la
