Fare ye well my dear companions,
Now the parting comes,
Tho these halls we leave for others,
Here you'll find a home.
Many are the days of gladness,
Passed in love with you,
Now has come an hour of sadness,
As we bid "adieu".
In these higher seats of learning,
Where new friends we find,
May there sometimes be a yearning,
For those left behind.
Very oft for sweet communication,
Will our thoughts take flight,
To renew in social union,
Friendship's dear delight.
