We’ve walked these high school halls for four years of our lives,
Making friends, enemies, and memories, just trying to survive.
Looking back on them now, a smile lights my tear stained face,
For it is through the laughs, not the tears, that I’ll remember this place.
There were fights with Cusamano at least once a day,
A twisty-tie in our scrambled eggs that somehow turned out okay,
We learned spaghetti really does stick to the ceiling when it’s done,
And that Audrey’s version of Spanish-o was definitely more fun.
We had paint fights at float meetings, and glitter fights too,
Learned to drive with Simmons and somehow made it through,
We thought we were being sneaky shaving creaming my cousin’s car,
Too bad his revenge left my precious Saturn with an ugly scar.
Every time we tried to rebel, the car would somehow stall,
Kahla tripped in Calculus before we could break her fall,
Allor almost got a pie right on top of her head,
Unfortunately, that Christmas, the TV got it instead.
We caused the big grease fire of freshman year,
Found out shrimp was one of Jessi’s greatest fears,
Stephen has mooned us all at least once; it’s true,
We even saw a rhino pee on our senior trip to the zoo.
We wondered what someone was thinking when they first milked a cow,
“Well, people always needed calcium,” Lindsay figured somehow,
We ate an entire cheesecake once at Driver’s Ed,
And toilet papered Dewey as soon as he went to bed.
There were trips to get ice cream with Mal not quite strapped in,
Erica tried to kayak but only managed to crazily spin,
Nicky ate a stick of butter for five bucks and some change,
And when we were alone together we acted kind of strange.
As you can see it’s been four completely crazy years in this little town,
Making and keeping friends that would never think of letting me down,
And the stories we’ve made will stay with me until I die,
Because it is the laughs that make it so hard to say goodbye.
