Lyrics

Neely Pritt:
You'll find happy hearts, and smiling faces
And tolerance for the ethnic races - in Denton

Harry Weiss:
You'll find a rambling rose and a picket fence

Emily Weiss:
Tenderness and innocence - in Denton

Vance Parker:
You'll find conference rooms
And a children's playground
Denton is a real OK town
Civic pride and civic duty
And Denton girls are
Full of beauty

Brenda Drill & Frankie:
You may call us the goody goody two shoes
We're here to cheer you with the good news
That D-E-N-T-O-N gets T-E-N
That's ten out of ten!
