Lavender, My Lavender

Sturdy sons, devoted daughters,
Trusty hearts and mighty hands,
Rally where your streaming banner
With its dauntless emblem stands.
Send a cheer to heaven ringing,
Voicing in a fond acclaim.
Faith and pride in City College
And her never dying fame.


Lavender, my Lavender,
Lavender, my Lavender!
On the field of life's endeavor
Bound by ties that naught can sever,
Hail we Alma Mater ever,
Lavender, my Lavender!
