Graduation from law school – We wish the day would never end
Mom, Dad & Mark are so proud of you – For all the hard work you had to expend
You’re a very special daughter – And this is your special day
It’s truly a dream come true – In our memories it will stay!!
Ever since we could remember – You’ve wanted a career in law
Pursuing your vision and goal – Remaining sensible without a flaw
Coming from an extended family of nuts – A long line with both extremes
Men and women of few teeth – Yes, pails with very little cream!!
And those pretending royalty – Belonging to the Kennedy clan
Makes it all the more amazing – That you completed what you began
A heart felt thanks to Senator Maltese – For his unrelenting support
I’m sure you’ll remember his guidance – Each day that you’re in court!!
You so deserve this recognition – You persevered three long years
While also achieving good grades – Let me be the first to lead the cheers
Our little “Jelly Bean” has blossomed – A mature woman, oh so sweet
Thank God you’ve given up – Those chocolate M&M’s you loved to eat!!
We gave you the foundation – You took it without a doubt
And built upon it wonderfully – We’re so proud we could shout
Use that knowledge to flourish – Helping others along the way
Don’t be “Mussolini on the Balcony” – That was something I just had to say!!
We wish you the best of luck – With your up and coming BAR
When you go into seclusion – We’ll be with you wherever you are
Remember to take your vitamins – High energy you will need
For when that Bar Exam is over – There’s no doubt, you’ll succeed!!
We wish you the very best – With a life filled with happiness and success
No degree, fame or fortune – Can replace the inner beauty you possess
We thank our family and friends – Who are all with us tonight
To share in this celebration – I know you feel their delight!!
All four of your grandparents – Along with Aunt Barbara too
Are looking down with a smile – And that smile is just for you
We urge you to take time for yourself – As we look at you with awe
For now our little “Jelly Bean” – Has earned her Doctorate of Law!!
