Proudly waves old West High's emblem
Black and orange fair;
Flows trumphant in the breezes,
No dishonor there.
Student Days have fondest memories,
Comrades, here we stand,
As our troth to Alma Mater
Pledge we hand in hand.

From thy halls, dear Alma Mater,
We at length must part;
But they memories shall not perish
From one student's heart.
Far away on life's broad highway,
All must fortune try;
Still our loving hearts shall cherish
Thoughts of thee, West High!
