If you should pass through Newgate Street, Bareheaded boys with coats of blue,
Among the crowd you're sure to meetó And all with yellow stockings too.
Their coats are long as well as blue, And when at football they do play,
They find them rather heavy too, So tuck them up out of the way.
In Christchurch passage will be found The entrance to the School; and though
It looks so quiet, all around
We hear the crowd go to and fro.
Above the doorway there you see
The Boy King's statue:óWould you know Who founded this great school? 'Twas he,
More than three hundred years ago.
