Through all the years,
Our dreams will never die.
Proudly we sing
of thee Memorial High.

Our victories we will cherish
and our honors are untold.
Dear old Varsity, Our love for thee
is great and mighty to behold.

Loyal and brave,
Thy honor save,
Stalwart defenders of the red and white
To thee our hearts belong, Memorial High.
