madness, indeed

My deplorable lack of creativity hit all-time high these past few days so I am posting what some geniuses from the junior class have concocted for last year's (ok, this is a bit too late) Malcolm Madness. Thanks, Vani, for sharing these with our block.
Ready, sing...
TULOY PA RIN
Galing lang ako sa Corpo
At ako’y natuliro
Ang klase namin alas-kwatro
Nagkandarapa pa naman
Badtrip hindi sya pumasok
Sana di nalang nagpagod
Isang libo na yata ang nasigarilyo
Inaabangan ang Pasko

Wala rin mangyayari
Kung papasukan pa
Maghihintay nalang
May magic notes naman
Lecture naman ito
Uwi na lang ako

STAY
Profs say, I only read what I want to
And they say I talk so all the time, so
And they said that my mind was simple
And they said that I don’t belong
And now that I am leaving
Now I know that they said something wrong
They dissed me
Yeah… They dissed me.

And they say, I only read what I want to
I don’t listen hard, don’t pay attention to the facts, the issues, ratio
To anyone, anywhere
I don’t understand if you really care
I’m only hearing negative -- L O A

So I turned to OCS, got an LOA form
and Ma’am Daway told me to be strong
“Trust in the Lord and don’t run away
Just stop crying, it won’t help you anyway”
Some of us hover and we weep for the others
who were dying since the day they enrolled, well, well
This is not why I think that I’m going, but I’m gone
And I thought I’d be here forever
But now I’m not so sure
She tried to tell me that I’m clever
but that won’t take me anyhow or anywhere with law

Hilbay said I was naïve and I knew that he was wrong, oh
I thought, hey I can leave I can leave oh
But now I know where I belong
UP law school
Yeah… UP law school

HIMALA
Pangarap ko
Makuha ang TRES sa subject na yan
Pina-finals mo
Sa amin ang
Multiple choice na walang hangganan

Hindi mahanap sa classcard ang pag-asa
Magreremovals nalang

Himala
Kasalan bang humingi ako kay Barry ng
Isang himala
Kasalan bang humingi ako kay Barry ng
Isang himala

*****
WAG MO NANG ITANONG
Singko…ang inabot ko
Nang piliting pumasa sayo
Kahit kwatro….
Jan sa subject mong
Parang sweepstakes
Ang hirap manalo

Ngayon… mabilaukan ka sana
Iwan ng asawa
walanghiya ka!

Pangit ka, mukhang gusgusin
…. Mukhang libagin
pangit ka, sarap gaguhin
Sana Lord, ikaw ay kunin…

BURN
I could’ve been a poet and write
I could’ve been an actor up in lights
I could’ve been a soldier… and fight for love

I could’ve travelled the world
Or been a diver for pearls
Or climb a mountain and touch the clouds above

I chose to be an attorney
Bring to life my fantasy
But I got a FIVE in return

I want you to burn
Burn for me JJ
In a bonfire, in the dark
Oh burn… burn for me… burn for me…
