Graduation Day

Apprentices celebrating graduation

Now, this is a story all about how

My life got flipped-turned upside down
And I’d like to take a minute
Just sit right there
I’ll tell you how I became the fresh PM with red hair

From Bisley in Surrey I was born and raised

On the netball court was where I spent most of my days
Chillin’ out maxin’ relaxin’ all cool
And all shootin some n-ball outside of the school
When a company called Invotra were oh so good
Started out close to my neighbourhood
I got invited in one day as they showed they cared
And said ‘You’re movin’ with Invotra even if you’re scared

I learnt and developed with them day after day
Until on my PM course, I was sent on my way
Working towards one special day, when I’d be given a ticket
I put my Walkman on and said, ‘I might as well kick it’.

A pass, yo I’m so glad
Drinking orange juice from a champagne glass
This is what graduation is like?
Yeah, this gets me so psyched

But, wait I see those robes, hanging and all that
Is this the type of place that they just send this cool cat?
I think that’s a yes
I’ll see when I get there
I hope they’re prepared for my crazy red hair

My name was called, and then I walked out
All I could hear was the family and friends, jumpin’ shoutin’ about
Trying not to make a scene
I just got here
I sprang with the quickness like lightning, disappeared

I whistled for a cab and when it came near
Accomplishment hit me as I heard everyone cheer

If anything, I could say I’m so proud to be here
We then all went home, and relaxed with a beer

I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8

And I yelled to the cabbie ‘Yo home smell ya later’
I looked at my kingdom
I was finally there
To sit on my throne as the fresh PM with red hair

(inspired by the fresh prince of bel air)
