Bring in the skins with the pins and the patches on their flights
The rovers with the clovers who've spent far too many nights
Out with us till closing time we hope we're not imposing on you
Get the crew together- it's the old school off the bright
Flush the boys out of Dot we're gonna need them there
And tell the trouble-makers that hang out in Harvard Square
We need every able asshole every asshole you can spare
We're going off the bright invite them to this fine affair
Tell the Irish in Southie and the South End Puerto Ricans
The North End Italians and the wind bags up on Beacon Hill
There will be no tomorrow, it's going down tonight
So get the crew together- it's the old school off the bright
We want the punks, the drunks the lay abouts the steady working joes
The white collars, the rednecks and our blue blooded bros
The jocks, the preps, the stoners, the homeless, and homeowners
Every loser, boozer, drug abuser, sharpie and Two-Toner
We'll take the jills and bring on the jacks
From Forrest Hills all the way to Father Mac's
The rude girls and the rudies, don't fail it's your duty
Cause tonight will be the night
So get the crew together
It's the old school off the bright [x3]
Get the crew together
It's the old school off the bright
