From 2014, apparently.
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
For school, our Ferris cares not half a jot.
To cherish youth, one must not read, but live!
The truant Mr Bueller answers not
His teacher's repetitious vocative.
With Sloane and Cameron, he shall roam the city
Enjoying his day off. Life is a lark!
Poor Cameron's uptight, but Sloane is pretty.
Museum, restaurant, and baseball park
Are must-see hot-spots for our feckless crew.
They'll ride in a Ferrari really fast!
They'll do things most of us won't dare to do.
They'll dodge Authority. They'll have a blast.
Hapless Principal Rooney, foiled once more
In his attempt to nab the mischievous one,
Will amble home dispirited and sore,
A fitting fate for one opposed to fun.
And yet, for Ferris, youth so quickly passes:
He'll work from nine to five; he'll feel the pain
Of aching bones; he'll need his reading glasses;
He'll trade in "Twist and Shout" for "Danke Schoen."
