Can’t Hardly Graduate
Written and composed by G’Ra Asim

I should’ve known I was headed for
Another year of uncertainty
That all my musings and metaphors
Only hide the absurdity:
Caps in air won’t be this year for me

I don’t know what you said it for
It’s not a state of emergency
If the rain comes, let it pour
‘Cause not a thing could burden me
What’s it pay that they all say

It’s so “do or die”
No, don’t ask why
I knew I’d never get by
If it wasn’t for:

At the shows where throwing ‘bows
And glancing blows is how it goes
I suppose that no one knows
Just what should keep us on our toes

When the end is near
Let’s hear three cheers

For graduating
If you’ve been waiting
Lifetimes for this
Sing this chorus
Life goes on
When you’re withdrawn
And I’m sincere:
I haven’t been to class all year

But I’m not going to sink
I’ve decided to think
With my own mind
On my own time

And I’m a credit short
But I won’t let it abort
My ambition
Or my mission
