College On the Clock!


Tick Tock, Tick Tock,

Is high school over?

Is it off the clock?


Tick Tock, Tick Tock, 

I'll be ready for college,

To gain more knowledge.


Am I to be an Optometrist or an NP(nurse practitioner)?

Not to have someone envy me,

But to be honored with my degree.


Will winning scholarship money give me a chance to advance?

I'll certaintly be ready to dance,

When I obtain that chance.


This is no Tomfoolery,

I'll have books to pay,

And spend hours in the library during the day.


Tick Tock, Tick Tock,

I am ready to dance,

I at least deserve the chance to,

But I won't be crying boo hoo.


Tick Tock, Tick Tock,

There will be someone to take pride and delight,

In seeing such a sight,

To know they'll have no worries,

Because they'll know they won't have to go to Maury.
