Alma Mater

On the banks of the Mohawk River
With its hills of blue
Stands our honored Cohoes High School
A stirring sight to view

Then hail to Cohoes High School
Whose blue and gold is our rule
We gain strength from thee O Alma Mater
Praise and hail Cohoes

We will treasure Alma Mater
And we now declare
Our loyalty and affection
As our voices fill the air
Then hail to Cohoes High School
Whose blue and gold is our rule
We gain strength from thee O Alma Mater
Praise and hail Cohoes

Loyal hearts beat proudly
And our pulses thrill
At the thought of that honored building
That stands upon the hill

Then hail to Cohoes High School
Whose blue and gold is our rule
We gain strength from thee O Alma Mater
Praise and hail Cohoes
