As the days go by with swiftness
That form the passing years,
To our dear old alma mater,
We raise our songs and cheers.
To old high we pledge our favor
No honor shall She lack,
While we pledge ourselves defenders
of the Orange and the Black.
When the cares of life o’retake us
And our locks are tinged with gray
Our deepest hopes betray us,
False fortunes fall away
We can banish care and sadness
And turn our memories back
And recall the days of gladness
Neath the Orange and the Black.
