School Song Lyrics

Golden Eagles, fly down the field
Ever to Conquer, never to yield
Golden Eagles, fearless and true
Fight on you Gold and Blue
Go! Go! Go!
On to Vic’try, strike up the band
Fight them far, Fight them near
Stand up and cheer, Hey!
Golden Eagles, win for Mercer County
The best in the land!
