Dear Calvin,

With many thanks.

Tune of "Harrigan":

What is the name that's above very other name
Don't you know?-------It's Knox!
Where are the sons that will stand for her pride and fame?
Loyal sons----------of Knox!
For she is our grand Alma Mater, you see,
And every inch for her great cause are we,
Where is the friend she can bank on unto the end?
All the sons---------of Knox!


K-n-o-x Knox C-o-l-l-e-g-e,
Proud of all the mighty profs that's in you,
Feed the boys on oatmeal, scones and sinew
K-n-o-x Knox, staunch and true and free,
Is a name that a shame never will be connected with,
Old Knox-------KC

Second Chorus:-

G-a-n-d-i-e-r, you all know spells Gandier,
Proud of all the Presbyterian in him,
Knox College for a head did win him.
G-a-ndier, Princ-i-pal you see,

Tune of "Auld Lang Syne":-

Should sacred memories be forgot,
An' never brought to min'
Can all his influence be forgot,
In the days of auld lang syne?


For auld lang syne, my boys,
For auld lang syne,
Can all his influence be forgot,
In the days of auld lang syne?

Then here's to his dear memory,
Our Father, Teacher, Friend:
Blest peace and Heaven's abundant smile,
May God upon him send.

Chorus:- Repeat second verse.

He's the idol of the College, Knox's grand old man,
Let us shout it, all about it, everywhere we can,
It's M-A-C-L-A-R-E-N.
