HAVE A FUN (HIGH SCHOOL) REUNION
Copyright © 1998 - MickTerry.com
On YouTube, performed LIVE by MICK TERRY (soon!)
So, the very one we voted
the Most Likely to Succeed
is now a bitter relic on a farm.
& his very closest friend-, who was Class Vice-President,
now slides a dirty needle in his arm.
The Treasurer is paying eight to twelve at Leavenworth
for withdrawing prematurely from a bank.
& the one we thought Most Likely to Begin a Nuclear War
continues to get busted down in rank.
But you may have heard the Secretary reached a certain fame
for sending threatening letters through the mail.
He & his bitter rival, who had led the football team,
have become the best of cell-mates while in jail.
We're awfully proud of "Biker", our own version of the "Fonz",
for his reaching highest honors at M.I. T.
& that creep who always beat me up & even broke my arm
is now a C.P.A. who works for me.
So, you- HAVE A FUN REU-NION,
but we're unable to- attend.
I'm sure there's something scheduled for- that day.
So, you- HAVE A FUN REU-NION.
Give our best to all- our friends. (both of them)
Call us the next HIGH SCHOOL- REUNION 5 years away.
& the pot-head who would grow his own & sell it for a song
became a D.E.Agent for a while.
The class slut that everybody had had married Mr. Wong,
making babies like it's going out of style.
The trio that no one could stand- finally got in tune
& at last count had three singles on the charts.
& the painter with such promise then- now does cats & clowns.
But he'll never ever prostitute his art.
The class prude is now a hooker.
The class clown became a priest.
And we lost at least two students to the war.
But they were not killed in action:
they never did hit the beach.
They went A.W.O.L. & are hiding way up north.
The cheer leader with the longest legs runs missions in the slums
& the guy she married at sixteen has died.
The girl that led debating teams and conquered every one
is sometimes standing in for Vanna White.
& ev'ryone has been divorced at least a time or two
and some keep getting married back again.
& the guy who flunked at least three times
& barely made it through
is teaching all our kids what we learned then.
