By lofty elm trees shaded round,
Our grand old Cortland College stands,
To all of us how dear!
We’ll sing to thee, dear Alma Mater,
Of love that shall never die,
We’ll strive for thy glory eternal,
Keep thy stainless honor high.
Inspiring each son and each daughter
The noblest aims to try,
All thy fame and thy spirit,
Thy might are ours
As the swift years hurry by.
