Let's Go Liners

Once a Liner Always a Liner

Our high school in NJ has had a rivalry with our neighboring high school PA for many years. It is one of the longest football rivals and dates back to 1905. I wrote this to support my hometown

Twas the night before the big game 

And all through the town 

All the people were cheering

For their team to win the crown


Which side of the river 

Will be the big winner 

Whose gonna go home 

For the best tasting dinner 


Rovers of Easton  

Black and red to the end

Will the trophy go with them 

Or will they be on the mend


The Liners of Pburg 

Bleed garnet and gray

With Suzie beside them 

They are ready to play


The day is upon us 

113 years in the making

A year of bragging 

Is up for the taking 


Bring on the cheerleaders

And the marching band 

The players are ready 

They will all be so grand 


When the coin is tossed 

There is nothing finer 

Than hearing the crowd yell

 Let's go Liners
