"The Graduation Song"

Graduation Song Lyrics - by Rhett & Link

For the past eighteen years
Your life's been pretty smooth
Let's take a moment and reflect
On all you've had to do

You've rolled out of bed
And strolled to the living room
And watched Cartoon Network
While your mom made waffles for you

Your laundry was magically clean
And your dad's back pocket was an ATM machine
Your life's biggest worry was what to wear to the prom
And your only regret was that incident
With the stink bomb

Do you hear that subtle sound?
That's the sound of reality
about to slap the taste out your mouth
Now you're on your own
You should be scared
But we can tell
You don't care
Why don't you care?
You should be frightened

You're young and now you're free
The world is your oyster
We have no clue what that means
But let us paint a picture of your future

You're gonna eat a lot of Hot Pockets
And you're thinkin' that sounds great
Well get back to us in six months
When you've had three hundred and seventy-eight

As soon as you move out
You know what your parents are gonna do
They're gonna turn your bedroom into an exercise room
That they never use

And you won't use lockers in college
And this might be a total bummer
There are no yearbooks either
You'll actually have to say
'Have a great summer'

Do you feel that gentle breeze?
It's the category five hurricane of adulthood
About to hit you upside the head with a tree
Now you're on your own
Don't screw this up
You're on your own
Good luck

You're gonna need it

When we graduated in 1965...

Life lay before us,
There was so much to do.
The world was ours to conquer and explore.
When we left East High's door.

There were jobs to be found
Further education to be had,
And someday becoming Moms and Dads.
Some chose to travel many miles away
For others, this was the place to stay.

Some may have accomplished
Most of the things they had planned
And think life has been just grand.
While in other lives
Many changes had to be made,
We had to make lots of adjustments
Along life's way

But no matter what
As we gather once more,
I'm sure we're glad
We've made it this far.
As we renew old acquaintances
And talk about the things we used to do,
We will learn we are short a few.

Some have departed this life along the way
And are absent from our gathering today.
Now as their names are read
Some will remember things
That they did or said.
Faces will become vivid once more
Though they haven't come thru the door.

So let us live our lives
Mindful of the things we say and do,
For the next one missing
Might be me or you.
