Pre-college life kind of sucks
Applying to scholarships, trying to get a thousand bucks
ACT/SAT is never fun
What if my ACT comes out as a 31?
I mean, I need that 32 for money to Wheaton!
Anyway, I've got all these scabs on my shin,
and that's not going to look nice for senior photos.
Oh, sometimes this SAT studying gives me emotional lows.
But at least all this work will pay off in the end,
and hopefully I'll be able to attend
Wheaton, get a job, get married, have a child
And when his college planning gets wild
I can tell him, "Hey, buddy, it will be okay
Just keep at it, success will come some day."
