1 Haste thee, school-boy, haste away,
Far too long has been thy stay,
Many a time you've tardy been,
Many a lesson you've not seen;
Cheerfully, joyfully haste away,
Far too long has been thy stay.

2 Haste thee, school-boy, haste away,
Join no more the laggard's play;
Quickly speed your steps to school,
And there mind your teacher's rule;
Cheerfully, joyfully haste away,
Join no more the laggard's play.

3 Haste thee, school-boy, haste away,
Learn thy lessons well to-day;
Love the truth, and shun the wrong,
Then no day will seem too long;
Cheerfully, joyfully haste away,
Learn thy lessons well to-day.

4 Haste thee, school-boy, haste away,
While thy youth is bright and gay;
Seek the place with knowledge blest,
'Twill thee guide to endless rest;
Cheerfully, joyfully haste away,
While thy youth is bright and gay.
