The Home Schoolers Who Don't Do Anything

My coworker Jamie (who was also home schooled) passed on this clever rewrite of the famous VeggieTales song, "The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything." Brilliant parody by Ethan Perkins. Enjoy!

We are the home schoolers,
And we don't do anything
We just stay at home and lie around.
And if you ask us, to do anything,
We just tell you: "We don't do anything."

Well I never took a math test,
And I'm not too good at science,
And I'm not too good at reading,
'Cause I never read at all.
Oh, my spelling is atrocious,
And my English is ferocious,
And my mom wears denim jumpers in the fall.

Well I just clepped out of high school.
How I love my mathematics.
And I own a corporation
And I'm eight grades ahead.
And I've programmed twelve computers,
And I always get an A plus,
And my mom wears denim jumpers in the fall.

Well, I think third grade's amazing,
And I play the ukulele,
And I plan to go to Harvard,
How come people always laugh?
Oh, I think that flowers smell nice,
And I wake up around lunchtime,
And my mom wears denim jumpers in the fall.

I was definitely a verse 3 home schooler...laid back and artistic. I also was "not too good at science." :)
