You’re throwing in the towel – But you’re not out of the game
Just switching fields – And a school with a different name
Of course you’ll be missed – For you’re a legend around here
With your removable front teeth – You’ve caused grown men fear!!
You’re a wonderful golfer – And love to share what you know
Of course you take peoples money – Because you play like a Pro
We first met at a Soccer game – With only 5 minutes left in the game
You wanted me and my team to pay – Frankly I thought that was insane!!
After yelling at each other – You finally relented and let us in
That’s when I knew you were a softy – As a former marine, you had a thick skin
You taught me the importance of “Balance” – And recruited me as an assistant to you
Working with you was wonderful – And because of it I truly grew!!
We took a staff bus to Lane Tech – After had Long Island teas at an Irish Pub
Got called that a student was missing – Fortunately, no Karaoke to add to this hubbub
Or the flying pop can – From someone who must have been your friend
And the Championshipsin Football and Badminton – Exciting to the very end!!
I truly want to thank you – As a mentor you were the best
You prepared me to replace you – For that I truly feel blest
You and Barb will now have more time – To spend with family and friends
And know that everyone at North High – All of our love we each send!!
