Graduation Day by Gym Class Heroes

I knew this kid named Alberto

Funny style cat

And his girl looked like a turtle

Not Lisa Turtle just a turtle

High school track

He ran the hurdle

His peers she'd tears senior year when he got murdered

Now Alberto was your average A student

Participated in class

Never came late

And never truant

His family was picture perfect

His older sister was prom queen

His dad a decorated vet from the Vietnam team

His mother was Dear Abby

An ordinary house wife

Like clockwork always had dinner on the table at 5

But Alberto had a monster he kept under his bed

Instead of letting it out

He just got a girlfriend instead

She knew something was funny

Shecould tell by his behavior

Or the way he flamboyantly shook his hand

When he would wave to her

She thought nothing of it

And just shoved it in the closet

Until the day that word dripped out like leaky faucet

Alberto was homosexual

I ain't have nothing against it

But little Ronnie Johnson and all his football player friends did

They'd always pick and nag

Call him "fag" and such and such

And couldn't wait to get to gym so they could really bust his nuts

The gym teacher never cared

He'd just join in on the action

He'd make silly gestures

And compared him to Micheal Jackson

Alberto couldn't take it

He'd just stop showing up and whenever he walked them halls

He just felt like throwin' up

And night he would cry and cry and ask "God why?"

Like "God why the fuck'd I have to be born this way?"

God would reply "Son you've gotta show 'em you're more than gay"

Cause he had dreams to be a track star

Until that warm April night

Them gay jokes went way too far

Ronnie begged for his forgiveness

And invited him to a party

Cause his parents went away

And left him plenty of Bacardi

Alberto kindly accepted

He was finally accepted

Except it was all deception

And left them all unprotected

It was a plan Ronnie had scammed

To get him in the right place

Verbally degrade and rearrange his pretty face

The plan would go swiftly

They started calling him sissy

One punch turned into fifty

They beat him till he was dizzy

Now Alberto lie in blood

While his peers look on in fear

He took his last breath

And passed away his senior year

Needless to say

It was one big tragedy

And how was Ronnie gonna explain to his family

While they were on vacation taking in sights

He got wasted and killed a kid that night


Don't be a slave and behave the way they do

Just utilize the gifts that God gave you [x4]


I knew this girl named Maria

Bright and talented

With aspirations to be a

Big superstar

What a great idea

Until she fell off and started to listening to her peers

Oh dear!

Now Maria was your typical obnoxious

Analytical head strong rebel

Flippin' off the principal

Single mother home structure

She looked after baby brother

While mom worked two jobs

Just to buy supper

Pops was a struggling musician

Troubled man

Juggling family and heroin addiction

He overdosed and left a notice of eviction

And a crate of records on the table in the kitchen

And a little angel with a keen sense of sound

Who saw silence in the records she found

And she would stay up late at night

Reciting songs to herself

Under pale moonlight

Righting wrongs that her pops made

Promised her mom she'd never go that same route

Turns out

Carrie Anne had other plans

Her and her man Ronnie most popular

Second best to nobody

Homecoming queen versus ugly duckling

And the story ends the same way

Ok Ronnie's parents went away for a couple of days

And told him "No Drinking"

What the fuck were they thinking?

Maria was oblivious that her boyfriend had already been invited

So when Carrie Anne asked

She got all excited

Like "damn now I got something to look forward to"

Or so she thought

Maria kindly accepted

Except it was all bullshit

Not pay attention

Carrie Anne hated Maria cause she could sing

So she scored a bag of heroin

But the craziest thing was

Maria never touched drugs she did that night

And when her man was getting beat

She was nowhere in sight

Now her boyfriend lie in blood

And she had no idea

Alberto passed away and she got hooked her senior year

Needless to say

It was one one big tragedy

And I hate to break it but

It doesn't end happily

A warm day in May

The sky was so beautiful

Carrie Anne died in a crash leaving the funeral
