High School Reunion-in present

Music: Joe Negri

Lyrics: Bob McCully, edited by Mike. Clark

(Verse) Have you ever been to a High School Reunion?

Well, I am at mine tonight

I’d heard so much about this Taylor Allderdice Reunion

I thought I’d just go and get tight

So I came to my TA Reunion

With qualms and reservations

I know very well it might be a shock

I was filled with trepidation


I am having a wonderful time at my High School reunion

A wonderful time I admit

All of you classmates have grown so much older

And I haven’t changed a bit

(You know) it’s hard to believe

That you middle-aged codgers

At one time were classmates of mine

Like Ed Solomon, Michael Stuthers, and John Shettel,

And my face hardly shows a line.

Oh, I will acknowledge my hair has grown grayer

It’s my only concession to time

It’s funny how some of us stay younger looking

I know I’m just approaching my prime

I’m having a wonderful time at this High School Reunion

But you know it’s as strange as can be

All of you classmates who look rather ancient

Think you look as young as me

Now I will acknowledge that some of you

Are plagued with avoirdupois

Those coltish young beauties

Are now grown out women

And boys are now men, not boys

I’m having a wonderful time at the Allderdice reunion

A wonderful time I admit

All of my friends have grown so much older

But me – I haven’t changed a bit

Thanks to Mike Clark for his amazing contribution to the reunion. Through his robot I was able to see and hear some of the reunion festivities. I truly wish I could have been there, but this was a bit like being the proverbial 'fly on the wall'. Great fun.
Thanks again, Mike.
