Бес жыл бұрын түлеп ұштық ҚазҰУ-ден,
Жырақтамыз ұстаз, шәкірт бір жүрген.
Жиі-жиі хабарласып тұрайық,
Шектелмейік бүгінгідей бір күнмен.
Курстастар кешегі арман жетелер-
Қазір бір-бір аналар мен әкелер.
Баршаңызға бар жақсыны тіледім,
Мақсаттардың билігіне жете бер.
Көңіл болды сағыныштан босаған,
Сыйластықпен сұлу әркез осы адам.
Бас-басыңа бергей Аллам амандық,
Жүздескенше болыңыздар, қош, аман!!!
