’Twas six weeks before prom and all through the school
Reacting to the word with an “Ugh” was the rule.
With college applications still fresh in our minds
Now its a date we still had to find.
One Thursday morning we woke up with a fright
A prom dress group on Facebook had appeared overnight.
“They’re going to run out of dresses!” we all swore up and down.
“These all look the same” we soon realized with a frown.
And if dresses are stressful that doesn’t even compare
To the struggle to create a date out of midair.
It would be easy to envy boys with the power to choose
But really, with prom, one can only lose.
Now that promposals have started there is no place to hide
The Disney channel movies, they shouldn’t have lied.
Looking for a knight in shining armor is far from realistic
But c’mon, promposing while skydiving, what the fuck?
Clearly this whole process is anything but calm
By the way, have you seen my ticket for after prom?
Speaking of after prom we still need to find a Hamptons house
At this point all we can afford is one big enough for a mouse.
I still haven’t bought my actual ticket for prom
Class government’s reminders are starting to sound like my mom.
We might be blowing this out of proportion
There’s really no need for all the commotion.
Prom is just a time to have fun with friends
Where we can dance and laugh before high school ends
We should all just —
Wait, he asked who?
