Hail to the graduate!
Looking great and feeling fit!
Oh, so proud and full of it!
This day belongs to you.

You've been a lovely friend and brother.
In fact, I wouldn't have another.
In fact, I can't--just ask our mother.
But better? There are few.

So go along and have some fun,
Learn some new things on the run,
And should you meet some special one,
Keep me in your heart, too.
