Senior Goes Viral For His Beautiful 'Parent Tribute' Song At Graduation

June 1, 2023

A high school senior wrote a brilliant original song that he performed at his high school's graduation ceremony.

Danny Kenny was asked to write the song as a tribute to the parents.

He starts off singing about burritos and you might think it's all a joke - but then nothing will prepare you for what comes next.


Last august I was told to write a song for graduation
Like a tribute a parents
So yesterday I wrote this song
During lunch
I was a little distracted, eating, but here we go

I'm sick of eating half cooked burritos
‘Cause that's all they're been feeding me for 12 whole years
The food is dry
So I know i might choke
But I'm hungry and broke
So reduced fat Doritos
And half cooked burritos will have to do

I've just been informed that apparently the lunch ladies are actually here today
I'm s- I mean, it's not your fault that- I- it's okay.

Sorry, you know, I'm just gonna skip a little bit in the song because I think there might be someone in the audience that won't appreciate the next bit, so… Gonna start talking about the parents, here we go.

I'm afraid
Of what life will be like without you
I'll miss your words when the rain starts to pour
Holding your hand when I feel insecure

I'm afraid
To cross this road alone
You've given me strength to move to the unknown
Even though I would rather stay with you at home

I'll miss when my dad takes the food from my plate
I'll miss when my mom cries ‘cause I placed in state
I'll miss when my dad gives me tips how to date
And I'll miss when my mom thinks I'm sick though it's fake

And I'll miss when my dad takes our boat on the lake
And I'll miss when my mom sings the songs that I make
And I'll miss when my dad shows me how to cook steak
And I'll miss when my mom let's me cry
Then she wipes the tears off my face

I'll miss you
I'll miss you

I'll miss you
A lot more than I'll miss this lunch food"
