Learn Our Lyrics!



The dawn breaks in Bloomfield o’er hills, lakes and pines,

As bright as the sunrise our Alma Mater shines.

The memories of friendships in ev’ry Black Hawk fills,

With loving hearts we sing to thee;

Thy praises Bloomfield Hills!


The late evening twilight o’er knolls, lakes and pines,

Like soft golden sunsets our Alma Mater shines.

Our memories like shadows the void of absence fills,

With voices raised we sing to thee ,

Thy praises Bloomfield Hills!



Go, Bloomfield Black Hawks, Break right through that line

With your colors flying, We will cheer you all the time


Rah! Rah! Rah!


Go Bloomfield Black Hawks, Fight for victory!

Spread far the fame of our fair name

And Bloomfield Hills will win this game!


Go Hawks Go!

Go Hawks Go!


Hit’ em high, Hit ‘em low, And Go Hawks Go!
