Listen here.

In our hearts, we will soar like eagles,
In our lives, there will be friendships true.
When we raise the banner of Landstown High,
We will cheer black, silver, and blue.
Lift us high with commitment to greatness.
Our success is the service we do.
In a class, on the field, eagle spirits are sealed
When we cheer black, silver, and blue.
In our hearts, we will soar like eagles.
In our lives, there will be friendships true.
When we raise the banner of Landstown High,
We will cheer black, silver, and blue.
Fair Landstown, we honor you!
