Ode to My Dissertation: Peter Criss Edition

"Diss"

(To be sung to tune of "Beth," by the rock band KISS)

Diss, I hear you callin',
But I can't sit down right now.
Me and the kids are playin'
And I just can't find the time . . .

Just a few more hours
And I'll get right back to you
Diss, I hear you callin'
But, Diss, what can I do?
(Bow, Bow)
Diss, what can I do?

You say you feel so empty
That I get nothing done
I'm always grading papers
And you're always alone

Just a few more hours
And I'll get right back to you
Diss, I hear you callin'
But, Diss, what can I do?
(Bow, Bow)
Diss, what can I do?

Diss, I know you're lonely
And I hope you're be alright
Cause I'll be grading finals
All night . . .



*I love the weird, 1970s, Sammy Terry vibe of this video.
**I apologize for all of the half rhyme (or slant rhyme, I can never remember the different). Please feel free to recommend lyrical improvements.

Tee hee! I had one prof say (perhaps they all say) that it was a matter of throwing student + dissertation into a pit, and seeing which one climbed out. I'm not sure who he was rooting for, though...
