Message:
Franklin High, our alma mater,
in thy honor now we stand,
thanking thee for all the knowledge
gained beneath thy guiding hand.

Thou hast helped us, thou hast taught us
and inspired us in every way.
Ne'er in life will we forget thee--
Franklin Alma Mater hail!

The rhythm was dirge-like and the words pretentious, but I wonder why I can still belt out this school song word for word yet can't remember where I have parked my car when I go to the Mall.
