Stand and cheer for the gold and brown
As we fight to win the victory crown
We will win because our name’s renown
We’re the Bruins of Capital High
We’re the Bruins dressed in our gold and brown
And our foe we will put down
As with honor we will win
At each game our school begins

We will fight to give our school a name
That will make us proud at every game
We will be the envy of each town
As we proudly wear our gold and brown
