Youth of Wilson, still undaunted
Banners to the sky are flaunted.
Daring hearts and hands are wanted
Onward! Seek the light.
Youth of Wilson, never yielding,
Swords of truth and courage wielding,
Name of honor ever shielding,
Battle for the right.
Tear the false asunder,
Trample error under,
Let valor fly in all the sky,
And virtue speak in thunder.
Youth of Wilson, school of glory,
Make her name live on in story,
Let the echoes ring back bravely:
Dear old Wilson High.
