I wrote this song for my son who just finished 5th grade.

Graduation, by Jeff Yas

You've taught me so much in your young life
Like reptiles crawled up from the sea
You can still fit on my shoulders
Even though you’re getting older
And I’m trying hard to let you be free

We’re headed for uncharted waters
This love boat's on hot rising sea
You put in your time, stood in those lines
Now its my turn to let you be free

Just want to take you to Paris
Find some new ways to embarrass you
Climb to the top of
Glass prisms and cherish you

But time's rolling on
Like a runaway ferris wheel
Rolling along
Time to pack up my parachute

On my back you’re a two year old bundle
who can see things that I’ll never see
I can still feel your weight there
Sweet breath on my neck hair
And I’m trying hard to keep that with me

I can see you out there jumping fences
Far outside my safe boundries
There no reason for running
Cuz change its a coming, and
I'm trying hard to let you be free

Just want to take you to Paris
Find some new ways to embarrass you
Climb to the top of
Glass prisms and cherish you

But time's rolling on
Like a runaway ferris wheel
Rolling along
Time to pack up my parachute
