SOUTH PLAINFIELD HIGH SCHOOL
ALMA MATER

Music & Lyrics by:
Judith A. Feltham & Daniel A. Spisso
Class of 1958


Hail to thee, South Plainfield High;
Cheer our guiding light.
Wave the emerald banner high;
The symbol of our might.
Hear us, Tigers, when we cry;
Stand for truth and right.
Raise your voices to the sky;
Stand for truth and right.
Raise your voices to the sky;
Cheer the Green and White.
Praise to thee, South Plainfield High;
Loyalty be thine.
May thy mem'ry never die
Though far our paths may wind.
Tigers sever not the tie,
Which our hearts doth bind.
Raise your voices to the sky;
Cheer the Green and White.
Raise your voices to the sky;
Cheer the Green and White.
