How he sought to make a living Working hard each crowded moment. Oft he thinks of his old high school, Fondly thinks of his old high school, Where he went long moons ago.
Years have passed since our young hero Graduated in his grey gown;
Fondly returned and was astounded To behold the same old schoolhouse Still in use by lusty students.
Still beside the great Northwestern.
