Play it while you sing along!

Cheer, cheer for Lake Forest High
the school whose spirit never dies.
Cheer for the team that has made it famous in the years gone by
and we will cheer for the blue and the gold,
the colors ever wave on high.
So let’s add to the score and win here once more,
come on and fight Lake Forest High.
