Dear Old Suitland High School
(composed by Billy Pirrone '53 and Ronnie Crown '54)

Dear old Suitland High School
We are proud of you
To our Alma Mater
And our colors too
To the sons of Suitland
Brave and loyal too
To you Suitland High School
We’ll be ever true.

In our hearts we’ll always be
Ever true to thee
Here’s to Suitland High School
Glorious to see
As the years go passing by
Their fame will never die
To you Suitland High School
Dear old Suitland High
