Now hands about, good Leopards all,
And sing a rousing chorus,
In praise of all our comrades here
And those who went before us;
For to this lay all hearts beat true,
The gallant hearts that love us,
So fortune fend each absent friend
While there’s a sun above us

 Sing Leopards, sing
 Floreat Sodalitas
 Little matter, well or ill,
 Sentiment is more than skill,
 Sing together with a will
 Floreat Sodalitas, dalitas Pardorum.

The ivy climbs by brick and stone
About the buttressed Hall;
So memory weaves a charm to keep Her servitors in thrall,
And whiskered Leopards think with awe
Of Babel Mandeb’s straits,
Where in the days of long ago
They wrestled with the fates

 Sing Leopards, sing
 Floreat Sodalitas
 Little matter, well or ill,
 Sentiment is more than skill,
 Sing together with a will
 Floreat Sodalitas, dalitas Pardorum.


Then here’s a toast before we part,
“The School House by the Lew”
And may its friends be stout of heart,
Its enemies be few
So we will pledge our noble selves
To use our best endeavour,
That while the merry world goes round
The School may stand for ever

 Sing Leopards, sing 
Floreat Sodalitas
 Little matter, well or ill,
 Sentiment is more than skill,
 Sing together with a will
 Floreat Sodalitas, dalitas Pardorum.
