Vitamin C Song Lyrics



"Graduation (Friends Forever)"

And so we talked all night about the rest of our lives
Where we're gonna be when we turn 25
I keep thinking times will never change
Keep on thinking things will always be the same
But when we leave this year we won't be coming back
No more hanging out cause we're on a different track
And if you got something that you need to say
You better say it right now cause you don't have another day
Cause we're moving on and we can't slow down
These memories are playing like a film without sound
And I keep thinking of that night in June
I didn't know much of love
But it came too soon
And there was me and you
And then we got real blue
Stay at home talking on the telephone
We would get so excited and we'd get so scared
Laughing at ourselves thinking life's not fair
And this is how it feels

As we go on
We remember
All the times we
Had together
And as our lives change
Come Whatever
We will still be
Friends Forever

So if we get the big jobs
And we make the big money
When we look back now
Will our jokes still be funny?
Will we still remember everything we learned in school?
Still be trying to break every single rule
Will little brainy Bobby be the stockbroker man?
Can Heather find a job that won't interfere with her tan?
I keep, I keep thinking that it's not goodbye
Keep on thinking it's a time to fly
And this is how it feels

As we go on
We remember
All the times we
Had together
And as our lives change
Come Whatever
We will still be
Friends Forever

La, la, la, la
Yeah, yeah, yeah
La, la, la, la:
We will still be friends forever

Will we think about tomorrow like we think about now?
Can we survive it out there?
Can we make it somehow?
I guess I thought that this would never end
And suddenly it's like we're women and men
Will the past be a shadow that will follow us 'round?
Will these memories fade when I leave this town
I keep, I keep thinking that it's not goodbye
Keep on thinking it's a time to fly

As we go on
We remember
All the times we
Had together
And as our lives change
Come Whatever
We will still be
Friends Forever

As we go on
We remember
All the times we
Had together
And as our lives change
Come Whatever
We will still be
Friends Forever

As we go on
We remember
All the times we
Had together
And as our lives change
Come Whatever
We will still be
Friends Forever

Vitamin C


Colleen Ann Fitzpatrick of Old Bridge, New Jersey was born on July 20, 1972. She is a pop music singer, dancer and actress and is better known by her stage name, Vitamin C.

She is married to Michael Kotch whom she met while attending New York University and they formed Eve's Plum together. Michael was the guitarist and Coleen was the lead singer. After around a year, they landed a deal with Sony and wound up releasing two albums, 1993's Envy and 1995's Cherry Alive. She also recorded a song called Vacation, which became the opening theme to Pokémon: The First Movie.

Colleen subsequently left for a solo career and also took on acting roles in The Naked Gun 2 1/2, Liar Liar, The Mambo Kings, Dracula 2000, and Get Over It. Fitzpatrick made cameos on Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, The Brothers Garcia, The Amanda Show, and The Sausage Factory.

In 1988 Colleen Fitzpatrick scored a deal with Elektra. Her debut album, Vitamin C, was released in late summer 1999 and it produced two decent-sized hits in "Smile" and "Me, Myself and I." Vitamin C really took off, though, with the impeccably timed release of the third single, "Graduation (Friends Forever)”.

In 2005, Fitzpatrick's cover of the 1980's hit "Voices Carry" by 'Til Tuesday was included on the soundtrack for the Disney superhero comedy movie Sky High (2005 film).

What events was the Vitamin C Graduation Song played at?

  • We used this piece for our Middle School graduation ceremony - and it was very well received.
  • Our Choir performed the graduation song at our farewell concert for the 8th graders.
  • My school softball team loved this song and we sang it at our last game as the 8th graders would be leaving the team.
  • The Vitamin C song was played at my yr 6 farewell song!!
  • Our class used this for a service because we're all getting split up and everyone started crying.
  • Suggestion - Take lots of photos of your school friends and turn them into a slide show and put it onto YouTube with the vitamin C graduation song played as background music and give the link to all your friends. Alternatively make it a slide show for showing at school.
  • We played the graduation song at out senior graduation ...if anyone is looking for a graduation song………this is it!!!
  • This song was played at our elementary school promotion.
  • Love the vitamin c song! We played it during a party on the last day of school.
  • I would like the vitamin c song played at my graduation except for the fact that everyone has this song at their graduation.
  • The vitamin c song is played at our school for all the grade 6th going to 7th, 7th going to 8th, and 8th going to the high school.




What about learning to play the Vitamin C Graduation Song on a musical instrument?

  • Not very hard to play. I have taken violin for 3 years and can play it pretty well. I also took piano for about 3 years and it's also just as easy. It's in C major, which is easy for piano, but you’ve got to make sure you check your fingering on the violin. I really recommend this!
  • I thought that this song was a little bit challenging to play, especially the 3 # part. I haven't been able to play it yet, but I know that I will.
  • I just bought the sheet music for the vitamin c graduation song a couple days ago and I already have it 3/4 the way through. There is a part in the middle though that has 3 sharps and it is kind of complicated. It is a great piece of music though".
