Current William & Mary Fight Song

To be sung every time the Tribe scores!

"Oh, we will fight, fight, fight for the Tribe,

Each time the Big Green team appears.

And we will yell, yell, yell for the Tribe,

And they will heed our mighty cheers.

Come on and cheer our team on to victory,

Let's give a shout for our colors bold-

We'll get a

Touchdown! Touchdown! Touchdown!

And raise the Green and Gold!"

When the Indian team appears,

We will pull like Hell for the Indians

When they hear our mighty cheers

We will circle the ends for the Indians,

And we'll romp right down the field--

Touchdown! Touchdown! Indians!

And----------------line will surely yield.


From the 1978 Football Program:

We will fight fight fight for the Indians

When the big green team appears

We will yell like hell for the Indians

And they will heed our mighty cheers

We will lead our team on to victory

And shout for the Indians bold

We'll have a touchdown touchdown Indians

And raise the green and gold

Rally and cheer the Indians, here they come!

Loyal and fearless heroes every one!
