Dear C.A. Brown, oh how, we love you
We love you true, your alma mater too
And with your help, we’ll climb the ladder of success
Remembering you helped us do the rest

Dear C.A. Brown, forever we will think of thee
Remembering all the times we spent with you
Dear C.A. Brown we’ll love you more and more each day
Until the tie that binds us all will roll away

Dear C. A. Brown, when time has passed and you grow old
We won’t forget the good you’ve done for us
And we will love you more and more each passing day
Remembering you helped us to pave the way

Remembering all the times we spent with you
Dear C.A. Brown we’ll love you more and more each day
Until the tie that binds us all will roll away
Until the tie that binds us all will roll away.
