THE WILBY ALMA MATER

When we but hear the name of Wilby

We will rise and pledge anew

The measure of of all our heart's devotion

To her we will still be true

We cannot refuse her when she calls us

To work or play or sing

We'll do our best what ever befalls us

And honor to Wilby bring

Then raise your voice for Wilby

Let her name and her fame be known

For her we stand and now each hand

For her shall be proudly shown

"Fair Play" is still our motto

to "May the best man win the game"

And so we're proud to shout aloud the Wilby name

Music by Royal A. Merwin - '19
