To graduate is like a crow
Flying up into a tree.
Once he gets there he can see
The younger children down below.

To graduate is like a frog
Hopping up from stair to stair.
He doesn't know until he's there
How high he is above the bog.

To graduate is as though you
Were climbing up a rocky hill.
Up and up you go until
You're at the top and see the view.

Up and up and up we go
From grade to grade, from hop to hop.
Why do we hop all the way to the top?
When we get there, we will know.
