Stratford, Wisconsin
Stratford, you pearl of Wisconsin
Your name spells contentment to me;
Though through places far many I've wandered,
I have always found shelter in thee.
Your fast growing, pretty surroundings;
Your bustling and well kept highways;
Your mills, your stores and your houses,
Show your spirit so everyone says.
For me there is none that is better,
Your people good citizens all.
Who everywhere always uphold you,
Should misfortune to you e'er befall.
Some folks leave you but sooner or later,
They always come back that we know,
You're simply the best town we know of,
And I'm right here "to tell the world" so.
For you are the town that we cherish;
That we love and will always hold dear;
And we don't care to stay from you far away,
For We're happy and proud to be here.
Good Luck to you Stratford, Wisconsin,
Your future is bright as can be;
We are with you and for you and of your,
Our unbounded faith is in thee.
