Seniors: Don’t get the Senioritus Blues


Singing the Senioritus Blues

I worked my rear off four years straight 

Taken tests over and over with my classmates 

Volunteered in every school club 

Took AP classes until my brain was numb 

Ran for office more than was my due 

Played Varsity football, soccer, and wrestling too 

Made a list of colleges with my advisor’s might and strength 

Not too long, not too short, just the right length 

Essays and applications, perfected and polished 

Are what it will take to get me into college 

Soon my answers will come back clear 

No from some, I know, and hopefully a yes from one I hold dear

Now I can party and enjoy myself December to May 

Replace homework with music on my phone to stay 

Drop Calculus and take time with friends after lunch 

No need to study, or worry about the AP test crunch 

I can go to prom and stay up until dawn 

Forget about helping my parents or mowing the lawn 

Wait!  My college friend said to beware 

Or I will be singing the senioritis blues 

In a letter from the college I will get the news 

The college does not like seeing my grades in the cellar 

They care if my record is no longer stellar 

The college can and will withdraw my acceptance for fall 

Then my face will no longer grace the freshman hall

I have learned from my friend’s story 

I don’t want senioritis to get to me. 

Or I will be singing the senioritis blues.


Keep going strong in your senior year.  Colleges can and do check your mid-year and final grades for senior year.  Every year they withdraw acceptances for students who have not maintained their academic record.  Don’t be one of those students – make the most of your senior year!
