JUNE CLASS SONG Tune: "The Stars Will Remember, So Will I"
THE JUNIOR-SENIOR CAME IN MAY; WE DECORATED ALL THAT DAY, THEN DRESSED OUR VERY BEST THAT NIGHT AND ENJOYED THE DANCE WITH ALL OUR MIGHT WE WERE REALLY SENIORS, COME NEXT YEAR IT WAS HARD TO BELIEVE GRADUATION WAS NEAR, BUT WE VOTED ON OFFICERS AND SETTLED RIGHT DOWN TO WORKING AWAY FOR THAT CAP AND GOWN THAT FOOTBALL SEASON WE'LL NEVER FORGET; 'TWAS THE GREATEST TEAM WE'D EVER KNOWN YET. BACKED UP BY OUR HEARTY ROOTING AND CHEERS, THEY WON THE FIRST TITLE IN TWENTY LONG YEARS. OUR CLASS WAS HONORED IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE; WE HELD DOWN BIG JOBS, BUT HAD LOTS OF FUN. WE STUDIEDAND PLAYED AND MADE MANY FRIENDS, AS CLOSER WE CAME TO OUR SCHOOL DAY ENDS. FINALLY CAME THE CHERISHED NIGHT, WHEN WITH HEADS ERECT AND EYES BRIGHT, WE GOT THAT DIPLOMA FROM WILSON HIGH AND SADLY WISHED OUR FRIENDS GOODBYE.
AS RATS WE CAME TO WILSON HI, ERE LONG THOSE DAYS HAD PASSED US BY, WHEN WE WERE SOLD AUDITORIUM SEATS, OR TOLD OF WONDERFUL SOPHOMORE FEATS. RIGHT SOON EXAM TIME CAME AROUND; TO BOOKS AND NOTES WE ALL WERE BOUND AS WE'D SEE EACH FRESHMAN BOY AND MISS, THEY'D SAY 8TH GRADE WAS NEVER LIKE THIS. THE NEXT YEAR CAME THAT AWLFUL FIRE THAT DID OUR SCHOOL SUCH DAMAGE DIRE WE MOVED ALONG TO BARRACKS "A" ABOUT THE MIDDLE OF MAY. OUR JUNIOR YEAR WE HALF WAY SPENT AS WE BACK TO THE BARRACKS WENT, WHERE BENCHES FELL AND BACKS WERE SORE, BUT SHELTER WE WERE THANKFUL FOR. IN FEBRUARY, HAPPY DAY, WE CAME TO WILSON'S HALL TO STAY, FOR WALLS WERE PAINTED FRESH AND BRIGHT, AND SHINY DESKS REFLECTED LIGHT.
Now that we are parting From Dear ole Wilson Hi The time has arrived to say goodbye, The years that we've spent here Too soon have passed us by, We'll always remember Wilson Hi. Now we are leaving you To start our lives anew, But in our future years we'll Surive to hold our love for you. The orange and the blue-ue Which stand for Wilson Hi Bring glory to the school they signify We'll never forget you As time goes passing by, You're in our hearts forever, Wilson Hi.
