On occasion, I’ll come a across a song that I feel would be that much better if the singer had a good mic.  This is one of those songs.  Still pretty good, though.  This artist has a fair number of songs in his discography, you can always check them out on Sprocket’s Youtube channel.

A blues song sung from the perspective of a filly in Miss Cheerilee’s class.

LYRICS:
I got too many maths
I got too many maths
How’s a filly supposed to play when you got so many maths?
Oooh-Hoooo.
What’s a pony to do?
I’m begging you Cheerilee, baby, please relieve these homework blues.

Applebloom and Scoots
Sweetie Belle and me
Got to go a-questin’
To find our destiny
But readin’s only paper
And your history is bones
Stuck staring out my window
Doing homework all alone
Ooh-Ooooh. Cheerilee!
Take away my homework blues

Science is a shackle
Essays are a cage
Thrust on us by grown-ups
All because our age
Age is just a number
I count 7, 3, 13.
Don’t nopony believe me
I got all the maths I need.
Woo-Hoo.
Cheerilee!
Relieve my homework blues!

I got those homework blues. Mmhmm. Cheerilee. The homework blues.

I can’t spell “dragonequus.” You got me on that, Miss Cheerilee, but answer me this: when am I ever going to need to know how? Seriously has that ever been – has that piece of information ever been useful to you at all except when teaching me how to spell “dragonequus”?
