Finale: To the tune of “Men of Harlech”

Foster FAMDA says goodnight now;
Time has come to dim the lights now
We must vanish from your sight now,
And go home again.

With orchestra and dancing,
And ballet girls romancing,
The Choir too has sung for you,
The songs you found entrancing,
Plays and sketches in full measure,
We have given for your pleasure;
So, with memories you’ll treasure
We must say goodnight.
