lyrics

Nietzsche was a philosopher who said that God had died
People told him he was nuts and it was just his foolish pride
I had to write a paper on his views on morality
But all that I could really tell is that he had two legs and knees
And a head of hair and eyes like beads and a beard that tangled up like weeds and a garden of flowers and birds and bees, but he didn’t like gardens he preferred to think about his... morals. yeah...

Read about him once in a magazine and all his major claims
Read about him once in a magazine but I couldn’t even say his name

Gotta write a paper on Nietzsche
And I don’t know what to say
Gotta write a paper on Nietzsche
Should have started yesterday
Gotta write a paper on Nietzsche
And I don’t know what to do
Gotta write a paper on Nietzsche
And I’m not even halfway through
I had to read a book and write a paper that’s three pages long
But I didn’t want to read or plead for an extension so instead I just wrote this song
