Verse:
Come cheer for Wash -ing -ton and Lee,
We're going to win an -oth -er vic -to -ry;
The White and Blue we will ev -er wave in tri -umph,
For the U -ni -ver -si -ty. RAH! RAH! RAH!
Fight to the fin -ish we are with you,
Break thru the line on ev -'ry play;
Rush the ball on down the field and we will
win this game to -day.
 
Chorus:
When Wash -ing -ton and Lee's men fall in line,
We're going to win a -gain an -oth -er time;
For W. and L. I yell, yell, yell, yell, yell,
And for the u -ni -ver -si -ty I yell, I yell like hell,
So fight! fight! fight! for ev -'ry yard;
Cir -cle the ends and hit the line right hard!
And roll the en -e -my up on the sod!
RAH! RAH! RAH!
