Do you remember

The beginning of Xavier?

They were shapin’ the minds of the girls

While keeping the ‘43 traditions

Our skirts were swingin’

In the AC, the kids are playin’`

Signing up for Rio, Remember

As we studied the night away

 Ba de ya – say do you remember                                                                                     

Ba de ya – Being a xavier gator

Ba de ya – never was a cloudy day

Thank you (repeated) x10-

Thank youuuuuuuuuu

Our prayers are with you

Holding hands with your heart to see you,

Only polo’s ‘n oxford’s, Remember

how Xavier was here to stay,

Now in Founders, we celebrate the Jubilee,

Only diamonds and love, Remember

The joy we have forever  

 Ba de ya – say do you remember                                                                                     

Ba de ya – Being a xavier gator

Ba de ya – never was a cloudy day
