School Song - "Dear Old Bryant Woods"

Dear Old Bryant Woods,
You're the best in the land,
Where our staff and our students are grand.
We show our pride, where learning is alive
We learn something new every day.
Thanks to Mister Rouse, we have our school house
And we hope it will always stand.
As the first school here let's give a cheer
For Columbia, Maryland.
