That's When

I always said, "when I have my degree."
that's when I'll be free.

That's when I'll know I've made it.


So then I said, "when I start my career."
the world will know I'm here.

That's when I'll know I've made it.


And then I said, "when I get a car."
I'll go far.

That's when I'll know I've made it


Of course, "when I buy a house."
and "when I get a spouse."

That's when I'll know I've made it.


Or maybe, "when the kids all come."
I won't be so glum.

That's when I'll know I've made it.


This time I'm sure, "when I'm dead."
Reaching the end, rotting in bed.

That's when I'll know I've made it.
