The High School Grad

Here at last, sweet graduation
Time to think of what comes next
High school’s done, to much elation
Time to choose your college text
You must choose ‘twixt art and science
Math and English are a must
Lit and hist’ry in alliance
Without them college is a bust
Study hard, don’t dilly dally
But take time to have some joy
Go to every football rally
There’s a girl for every boy
On occasion go to dances
Give the social life a whirl
Don’t be shy, just take your chances
There’s a boy for every girl
If the rules sometimes get bended
Take in stride and have no care
Mom and dad won’t be offended
Because, you know, they won’t be there
