    We begin our walk in the majestic entrance
    With the famous pictures of our cities past
    Such as the men and women who served in wars
    Or the leaders of yesterday their heritage cast
    A stroll around the Fred Kyrouz Chambers
    Its spirit of many moments of our cities past
    A place where all would gather in celebration
    For the holidays feasts or parties in the hall
    In years past where basketball was played
    Or where gatherings were held for fancy balls
    We journey to the top of the City Hall Tower
    Where in each round widow you can view
    The cities fishing boats coming into the harbor
    Their hopes and dreams by their catch renewed
    We have below our clock the Samuel Sawyer bell
    Above of which sets his table with each leg its lessons to tell
    Last of all we explore the Balcony of those who led
    Our city and what their wisdom gave us to this day
    That of not looking back, but moving ahead
    Gloucester will grow and lead us the right way
