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

To graduate is like a ewe
Climbing up a rocky hill.
Up and up she goes until
She's at the top and sees the view.

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.

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.
