School Cheer

We don't drink,
We don't cuss,
Norfolk, Norfolk.

I am told that this is the most often repeated cheer for the biggest high school in Norfolk, Virginia.

Informant says that he heard this from a class mate of his in Washington, DC in the fall of 1967.

Smile

Someone gave me a smile today,
I tried my best to give it away
To everyone I chanced to meet
As I walked down the street.
But everyone that I could see
Gave my smile right back to me;
When I got home, besides my smile,
I had enough to reach a mile!

 

Submitter comment:

Informant says she has known it for a long time but has no record of source.
