The Chairs all are empty, the last guest has gone!
The candles burn lower and lower, and sputter on and on -
But after the last guest's departed, haunting the smoke-laden air;
There remaineth a lingering presence, the ghost of good fellowship rare!
Friends, friends, friends; you and I will be!
Whether in fair or in dark stormy weather - we'll stand or - we'll fall together for S-A-E!
We will always be! Our bonds celebrating 'till death separating - old pals from me!
