    The Dark Blue and Gold



    Through the four long years of Roxbury
    'Midst the scenes to us so dear,
    Full of hustle, full of hurry,
    Are the days that we spend here.
    As we won athletic victories
    On the football field of old.
    Still we work for dear old Roxbury
    And the Dark Blue and the Gold.

    Although other schools are larger,
    And their names are better known,
    Still the school that we will favor
    Is the school that is our own.
    We will work for dear old Roxbury
    And float her colors bold.
    For the colors of our High School
    And the Dark Blue and the Gold.

    When the cares of life o'ertake us,
    Mingling fast our locks with gray,
    Should our dearest hopes betray us,
    False fortune fall away.
    Still we banish care and sadness
    At the memories of old,
    And recall those days of gladness
    'Neath the Dark Blue and the Gold
