They Shall Not Grow Old
Laurence Binyen
Here Stands This School Upon A Hill,
Where We Were Young And They Were Young
Here Echoes On Their Laughter Still
Their Voices Ring - Their Songs Are Sung.
We Hear Them Cry - "Bunch-Bunch And Take!"
We See Them Racing Round The Track
We Cheer Again The Runs They Make
The Triumphs Of The Years Come Back
So Turn These Pages Where You Will
And Read The Roll Call Name By Name;
Of All The Old Boys From The Hill
These Youngest Won The Greatest Fame.
