Homeschool work has never been quite like this.
The Van Halen News Desk knows that parents could use some comic relief these days. After all, dealing with the challenge of keeping your children educated at home during the COVID-19 crisis is no easy task. Below is a brand new parody called “Not Your Teacher”. It’s produced by The Holderness Family, who has released a series of parody videos. After having to homeschool their kids, they decided to honor teachers with their own take on the Van Halen classic “Hot For Teacher”.
“I swear my homework was never quite like this. We cannot tell you how much you rock, teachers! Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! We know social distancing is hard. #StayHome and laugh #WithUs – we will be making songs, skits, and vlogs to keep you smiling! #NotYourTeacher, ” says the Holderness Family.
And now class, please take your living room seats and watch “Not Your Teacher”:
So, can you remember all of the lyrics? Don’t worry, no pop quiz coming but here’s a cheat sheet just in case you didn’t catch them all:
Ok, so my kid hands me this problem:
At 10:32, a 200-foot long train enters a tunnel going 30 mph.
How long is the tunnel if the back of the train gets halfway through the tunnel at 10:34?
I’m like how do you even start to figure this out?
I mean I drew a picture, and the picture is really stupid
It looks nothing like a tunnel
How the heck do teachers explain this to our kids?
I really suck at homeschool
We are stuck in quarantine, I get made and I get mean
How do teachers always keep their cool?
I just looked at all of the answers that I missed
Oh no, my homework was never quite like this
I got it wrong, got it wrong, got it wrong
I’m not your teacher
I got it wrong, so wrong
I’m not a teacher
Kim jumps in and she’s like, “If it goes 30 mph that’s a mile every two minutes right?”
“So the tunnel is two miles long.”
Easy, peasy got it right.
Then she’s like, “Crap, I have to do the back of the train?”
“That’s just mean and who cares about the back of the train?”
“When Usain Bolt crosses the finish line…
…they don’t ask you when his butt crossed the finish line!”
Now she’s got a headache and she’s screaming at the board
She’s acting kind of like a jerk
She thinks let’s just Google it?
But the boy says, “Don’t forget
It don’t count unless we show our work.”
And there are 17 more problems just like this
Oh no her homework was never quite like this
Got it wrong, got it wrong, got it wrong
She’s not your teacher
She got it wrong, so wrong
She’s not your teacher
