    Arcadia High's Christmas Song

    Post  sallychung on Fri Dec 04, 2009 7:13 am

    Our parents should have told us long ago, Christmas is a lie! But you know what? I figured out why they never told us the truth. It all started when my mom switched the radio station from KIIS to 103.5 because she claimed that that music was “making me more stupid.” MORE stupid? Thanks mom. So I was forced to listen to jolly Christmas music, which actually wasn’t so bad…until I started hearing the lyrics. “It’s the greatest time of year!” Greatest time? What about the horrific weather and cram-for-college time makes it so great? “…And it’s here! We’re gonna celebrate it!” Apparently, our teachers think celebrate means piling up essays and projects. Hm, that says a lot about their life. So sometime between my mother calling me stupid and Aly and Aj belching that tune, I realized the truth! Our parents trick us into believing that winter break is great so that we’ll understand their reasoning when this event happens:
    Me: Mom, I’ve been working non-stop. Can I have a break and go to the movies with my friends?
    And this is her clever evil reply:
    Mom: No. That’s what winter break is for! I’m already giving you two weeks of break! Now, study!

    It makes me wonder, what if Christmas songs played the truth? They wouldn’t be so jolly, and Mom would have nothing to trick me with. Here’s what The Christmas Song
    should actually sound like.

    Arcadia High’s Christmas Song

    Average-scored tests roasting on an open fire,
    Semester finals nipping at your brain,
    Lehrer’s “Elements” being sung by AP Chemists
    And Apaches dressed up like Eskimos.

    Everybody knows Mists Essays and some APUSH notes
    don’t help make the season bright.
    and senior class, with their college apps to go,
    Will find it hard to sleep tonight.

    They know that Santa is bringing college to their way;
    He's loaded lots of essays and other goodies on his sleigh.
    And every senior's parents are going to spy,
    To see if their kids really know how to apply.

    And so I'm offering this simple phrase,
    To class of 2010 to 2013,
    Although it’s impossible to be free during break,
    A very Merry Christmas to you. :]

    It's the Most Stressful Time of Year:

    There's a hectic kind of feeling in the air
    it only happens at this time of year
    when everyone is filled with stress and fear
    'cause that's what really happens

    when eyes are drooped with bags
    working through the holiday
    we can feel the anger growing, growing

    It's the most stressful time of year, and it's here
    help me just get through it
    with everybody here, friends so dear
    let me simply state it
    this is to the world and everyone
    lift up your books and feel the stress
    it's the suckiest way, to spend the holiday
    yeah

    we will get all sleepy by the Macbook
    turn the music up a little higher
    i don't think that i could ever feel
    sadder

    decorate the tree, hang mistletoe
    do your jolly things
    and crudely smile at me

    it's a perfect moment captured
    memories of your lying face to remember
    you said

    it's the greatest time of year, and it's here
    but why can’t I celebrate it
    cause while everybody is here, friends so dear
    let me simply state it
    I’ve got no joy in the world
    If you expect me to make it into Harvard
    it's your favourite way, to watch me spend the holiday
    Merry Christmas to you too, Mom.

    Now we're more in the holiday spirit! Now, if teachers don't want us to grow up like The Grinch who couldn't celebrate Christmas because of stockings full of AP homework, they should probably cut us some slack. Here's a good Christmas wish: less work, more sleep, better grades, and happy parents! Santa should give this to you, well, if you're on his nice list that is.
