Story

I say goodbye to lots of kids every spring as they move out of preschool into grade school. It's a melancholy experience for the kids, teachers and families. I wrote this to honor the time they have spent at the preschool level and be aware that they are growing up and moving on. Hard to sing without a tear.

Lyrics

I’m gonna miss the friends I’ve made

My teacher’s voice and the games we’ve played

I’m movin’ on to the next grade

Because I’m growing up

 

Every moment from day one, you held my hand and we had such fun

Circle time and time to run, we spent our moments well

My classroom holds a family, I’ve come to love and they love me

Some of them I’ll never see, when summer calls us home

 

I’m gonna miss the friends I’ve made

My teacher’s voice and the games we’ve played

I’m movin’ on to the next grade

Because I’m growing up

 

As the leaves fall from the tree, the snowman yields to the buzzing bee

A butterfly now I must be, thanks for the memories

Yeah, thanks for the memories

 

I’m gonna miss the friends I’ve made

My teacher’s voice and the games we’ve played

I’m movin’ on to the next grade

Because I’m growing up

Yeah, I’m gonna miss the friends I’ve made

My teacher’s voice and the games we’ve played

I’m movin’ on to the next grade

Because I’m growing up

Because I’m growing up

Look at me, I’m growin’ up

Cool Music!
