Song Lyrics (2016)
REFRAIN: Melville school, Melville school,
It’s a celebration! Melville school.
Melville school, Melville school,
It’s a celebration! Melville school…
On Aquidneck Island, by the Bay,
Here in Portsmouth, we learn each day,
At Melville school, where we can follow our dreams!
With Squirt the Whale swimming by our side,
A Great Adventure, set sail for the ride!
With our teachers, friends and families.
Melville teachers are really fun,
Bringing Learning to Life for Everyone.
We jump into Field day, & “Whale done” activities!
In Math and Science, Reading and Arts
With Open Minds and Healthy Hearts
With Music, we’re singing, to be the best we can be!
People help you when you're feeling down,
So you can turn your frown right around.
So stay in school and you'll be cool,
'Cause everyone's learning at Melville School!
(Sing REFRAIN Call & Response Style 2x
then FINAL refrain Singing All-Together)
