Alma Mater
All hail our high school,
Its tower and bell, Willing and eager its Praises to tell.
To pledge allegiance, We’ll sing loud and long, Shippensburg triumphant Its glory in song.

Chorus
We love thee, Alma Mater, And loud our voices raise, For all your patient teachings, This noble hymn of praise,
The world will need our service, In life, at work or play,
But deep inside, shall be a pride In our Maroon and Grey.

II.
Lead on and serve well, Ye, old grads and new, Make your old high school Be proud of you.
Mid all life’s ventures, If chance comes along, Let’s raise our voices In this tribute song.
