Class Song

One Alone

- Words by Barbara Drucker

Shadows fall, the time is nigh;
Sweet breezes whisper a lullaby.
Each one ready to depart, a
World of friendship beats
Warm within each heart.

Newport High, Oh, Newport High ----
May love and Fortune's smile
Beam down on you dear School.
Pray God to Thee,
Tomorrow Victory
Our Love for thee, dear Newport High.


Graduation Day

- Joe Sherman / Noel Sherman, 1956

(Beach Boys version recorded 05/05/65)

There's a time a for joy
A time for tears
A time we'll treasure through the years
We'll remember always
Graduation day

At the senior prom
We danced 'til three
And there you gave your heart to me
We'll remember always
Graduation day

Though we leave in sorrow
All the joys we've known
We can face tomorrow
Knowing we'll never walk alone
When the ivy walls
Are far behind
No matter where our paths may wind
We'll remember always
Graduation day
We'll remember always
