Satire

Don't lose yourself
Parody of a Eminem's song, "Lose Yourself"

September 4, 3003
The Iranian

Look, if you had one shot or one opportunity
To get accepted to the school you always wanted in one moment
Would you capture it or just let it slip?

[Verse 1]
Yo, his palms are sweaty, fingers weak, thick glasses are heavy
There is vomit on his sweater already
Mom's forgettin' he's nervous
But on the surface he looks geeky and ready
To score high, but he keeps on forgettin'
What he memorized, the teacher speaks so loud
He opens his mouth to ask a question but the words won't come out
He's chokin', how? Everybody's writin' now
The clock's run out, time's up, exam over BLOW!

Snap back to reality, oh there goes the formula for gravity
Oh, there goes Arash, he choked, he's so mad
But he won't give up that easy, no he won't have it
He knows his whole back's to these ropes
It don't matter, he's a geek, he knows that
But his pen broke, he's so sad that he knows
When he goes back to this study room
That's when it's back to the lab again, yo
This whole examination, better go capture this moment
And hope it don't collapse on him

[Chorus]
You better lose yourself in the entrance examination
The moment you own it you better never let it go, oh
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to score
Cuz opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo
You better lose yourself in the entrance examination
The moment you own it you better never let it go, oh
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to score
Cuz opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo

[Verse 2]
Fart's escapin' through this hole in his pant's that is gaping
This Harvard University is mine for the taking
Make me student as I move toward an obsessive-compulsive disorder
A high-school life is boring
But acceptance to Harvard close to post mortem
It only grows harder, exam room grows hotter
His score blows us all over, these geeky students is all on him

Coast to coast exams, he's known as the Pen Dropper
Memorization codes, God only knows
He knows he's grown farther from home, he's no tutor
He goes home and barely knows the assignments of his brother
But hold ya nose cuz here goes his attempt at shower

These geeky hoes don't want him no mo', he has a cold
They moved on to the next geek whose GPA flows
He has a pimply nose and sold cheat sheets
So the entrance exam is told and unfolds
I suppose it's last year's test, but the exam goes on
Da da dum da dum da da
 
[Chorus]
You better lose yourself in the entrance examination
The moment you own it you better never let it go, oh
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to score
Cuz opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo

You better lose yourself in the entrance examination
The moment you own it you better never let it go, oh
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to score
Cuz opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo
