For reading and writing, for football and hurling,
For singing and dancing and music so cool,
In all your days rambling, you’ll see none resembling
The pride of the Royal, Ratoath National School.
The students are gracious, the classrooms are spacious,
The buildings and gardens look good as a rule.
The pyramids of Giza and the Great Wall of China
Are nothing compared to Ratoath National School.
The teachers are blessed with the wisdom of Solomon.
Beside them poor Einstein would seem like a fool.
If you want education, there’s just one location.
The best school in Ireland, Ratoath National School.
On sporting occasions, in countless locations
Our students show pride, to the cause they are true.
They never stand back, they will always attack
When wearing their colours, the yellow and blue.
We have Tara for history, Newgrange is a mystery,
Round towers and castles in Trim and Clongoole.
But the one spot to visit, a shame if you miss it,
The best place in Ireland, Ratoath National School.
Queen Lizzy of England and Barack Obama
Are coming to visit and stay for a while.
We’ve sent invitations to join celebrations
In the best National School on the Emerald Isle.
