School Song, Student Section and Cheerleader Cheers
School Song

Loyal to thee Cyprus High School
Ever faithful to Gold and to Blue.
United we stand for our colors waving,
Waving ever, so fight you Pirates.
Love to our dear alma mater,
May our memories of you never die.
Our spirit and ideals will always stand,
So hail, hail, hail to Cyprus High.
Then on, you mighty Pirates!
We’ll cheer this game to victory.
Our team will always fight to be in the game,
But win or lose they’ll bring us fame,
So on, you mighty Pirates!
We’ll cheer this game to victory.
Our spirits and ideals will always stand,
So fight to the end, you Pirate men.
Love to our dear alma mater,
May our memories of you never die.
Our spirit and ideals will always stand,
So hail, hail, hail to Cyprus High!
