oh, the places you'll go

Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!

Oh! The Places You’ll Go!
You’ll be on your way up!
You’ll be seeing great sights!
You’ll join the high fliers who soar to high heights.

You won’t lag behind, because you’ll have the speed.
You’ll pass the whole gang and you’ll soon take the lead.
Wherever you fly, you’ll be best of the best.
Wherever you go, you will top all the rest.

Oh, the places you’ll go!
There is fun to be done!
There are points to be scored.
There are games to be won.
And the magical things you can do with that ball will make you the winning-est winner of all. You’ll be famous as famous can be, with the whole wide world watching you win on TV

So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great tact and remember that Life’s a Great Balancing Act.
Just never forget to be dexterous and deft.
And never mix up your right foot with your left.

And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and ¾ percent guaranteed.)

Kid, So…be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bree
or Lucy, or Suzy, or Cydney Marie
you’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
So…get on your way!
