The Blue and White of high school floats gently o'er each dale,

And on Jersey's highest summits, is always there unveiled.

The Blue stands for violets, and White for lilies tall,

That protect the dear old high school, and that win laurels all.

Through the four long years of high school,

'midst the scenes we love so well.

We'll work for Alma Mater, Support her with our yell.

When the cares of life o'er take us, Sad'ening our lives so bright,

We'll recall those days of high school,

'neath the Blue and 'neath the White.
