BRACKENRIDGE, BRACKENRIDGE
We are with you heart and soul
We will fight and win our goal
Ranking high you know why;
Just because you carried through
All those things that are great and good
Brackenridge, here's success to you
BHS, o'er the rest

Fighting fair do-or-dare
Thanks to thee and to thy creed
We will go but we know in a pleasant memory
Will be always within our hearts
Of the days we spent with thee

Fight right through that line
Circle right around those end boys
Touchdown sure this time! Rah! Rah! Rah!
Tackle down them, hold them, ground them
Now let them free
Onward you eagles onto victory
