In our hands lies the future
Of this great land
If we all work together
Doing our best for the common good
There's no limit to what we can achieve
When it's time for work or play
We'll always be there with a will
to win, yet be good sports
If it’s down that we must go
Then everyone will know that
we'll be back to try again
Yes, our spirit never dies
But always bounces back with vim
Though the chance be great or slim
When we're put against the rest
On a field or any test
Yes, Berinba is the best
