The time you study for your school final exam
We cheered you through the last question
Boys and Girls stood cheering by
And home we brought you shoulder-high

Today the road is all clear
Shoulder high we bring you home
And set you at your sweet triumph
School boy of a stellar school

Smart lad, to slide by time away
From a test where glory does not last
Who sees through the laurel crown
that it withers faster than a rose

Now you will not spread the ink
Of lads who wore their honors out
Students whom renown outpost
Will be brought back to you.

Everyone wants to be as good as the best. You should not worry about a minor test. The final exam wraps all up.
