Boring lecture interrupted by singing student

Brilliant three minute video where some students stand up in a lecture to deliver a musical complaint to the lecturer about boring teaching. It's fun but really a plea from one generation to another to stop boring them to death.

Interesting that the student shows innovation and performance skills then the smartness to get this on Google Video. How many lecturers would be brave enought to record and distribute their lecture?

LYRICS
I've got a question -- what I mean is. . . it's just. . .
We come to class everyday it seems, we all fall asleep we've lost all our dreams.
There is no inspiration.
But when did we become this way, so disillusioned? So blasé?
I can't make the calculation.
Can I borrow your TI-83?

Have you thought for a while
about the impact that you have on us?

I think it's high time that you tried
to extend your learning on to us and reach!
Are you with me classmates?

What about that guy over there? Why aren't you taking notes? Don't you even care?
This is your education.
This girl sitting over here, she talks a lot in class but her thoughts are never really quite clear.
So much mental masturbation
Is it we..who are to blame.

All the professors in movies and TV
like "Dead Poets Society,"
and they risk their very professions for the chance
to be inspirations to kids like me!

It's no wonder why we're here.
You must think we only party and drink beer.

But all we need is just one chance...
to be treated as your equals and to dance.

It's no wonder why we're here.
You must think we only party and drink beer.
I think it's high time that you tried
to extend your learning.. on.. to.. us.. and REACH! TEACH! ...
