Come cheer for Washington and Lee,
We're going to win another victory;
The White and Blue we will ever wave in triumph,
For the University. RAH! RAH! RAH!
Fight to the finish 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 today.
When Washington and Lee's men fall in line,
We're going to win again another time;
For W. and L. I yell, yell, yell, yell, yell,
And for the university I yell, I yell like hell,
So fight! fight! fight! for ev'ry yard;
Circle the ends and hit the line right hard!
And roll the enemy up on the sod!
