Daddy Long Legs the Musical - Graduation Day Lyrics

"Graduation Day" is a song from musical 'Daddy Long Legs' performed by Megan McGinnis (Jerusha) and Paul Alexander Nolan (Jervis).

JERUSHA
Why does it feel like I'm flying,
somebody wake me at last
for I'm right on the edge of a wide wide world...
And I look at so many faces
in a place I never dreamed I would be,
there is one empty chair that I simply can bear to see...
And I'm fighting back the tears,
yes I'm fighting back the tears on graduation day.

Still this is rather amazing,
summa cum lauda and all,
but it won't mean a thing if everyone's legs are small.
And I'm fighting back the tears,
yes I'm fighting back the tears on graduation day

JERVIS
I'm here Jerusha,
I'm standing in front of you now,
I'm here Jerusha,
I just look like a person you know,
I'm here Jerusha,
I'm here Jerusha.
And I'm fighting back the tears,
yes I'm fighting back the tears on graduation day.

JERUSHA
Well this is your lost mr Clothes Pole, (Well here I am)
mr Girl Hater, dear mr Smith, (Right before your eyes)
or whatever you're called,
you did not show, (I'm right here)
you are not here.
And now I'm fighting back the tears, (Fighting back the tears)
breaking through my fears
for I will stand out from the crowd (And you have made somebody proud)
and make somebody proud.

[Thanks to Beatrice Baldassarri for lyrics]
