1 Don't you hear the school-bell ringing?
Don't you hear the school-bell ringing?
Don't you hear the school-bell ringing?
Calling us to school!

Chorus:
We're a band of singers,
We're a band of singers,
We're a band of singers,
And we'll sing our cheerful songs.

2 We will mind our dearest teachers,
We will mind our dearest teachers,
We will mind our dearest teachers,
And do as they wish. [Chorus]

3 We must try to learn our lessons,
We must try to learn our lessons,
We must try to learn our lessons,
We will learn them well. [Chorus]

4 We'll take pains with our reading,
We'll take pains with our reading,
We'll take pains with our reading,
We will do our best. [Chorus]

5 Try again, shall be our motto,
Try again, shall be our motto,
Try again, shall be our motto,
And we shall succeed. [Chorus]

6 We will never say, I cannot,
We will never say, I cannot,
We will never say, I cannot.
Though the task be hard. [Chorus]

7 We will always say, I cannot,
We will always say, I cannot,
We will always say, I cannot,
When tempted to sin. [Chorus]
