UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA SONGS

ALMA MATER
TUNE: Marching Through Georgia
B. F. Stacey

Come salute the Red and Blue and sing again our song;
Sing it till the welkin rings, with echoes loud and long;
Sing it as we ought to sing it, cheerily and strong--
True to our dear Alma Mater,

Chorus--

Hurrah! Hurrah! The Red and Blue for me;
Hurrah! Hurrah! for our old 'Varsity;
Loyal hearts will turn to her, wherever they may be--
True to our dear Alma Mater.

Chorus--

Those with purpose strong and true, receive a friendly hand;
Welcome are all honest hearts to this fraternal band;
Pledged to help each other here, we'll by each other stand--
True to our dear Alma Mater.

Chorus--

Priceless is the help we gain in this familiar place;
Let us then be earnest as the moments fly apace;
And an unstained record leave to those who take our place --
True to our dear Alma Mater,

Chorus--

When the parting day rolls 'round, and College joys are past,
And the cares of business life fall 'round us thick and fast,
Still we'll give the U. of A. our homage till the last--
True to our dear Alma Mater.

THREE CHEERS

TUNE: When Johnny Comes Marching Home

Dedirated to the Athletic Association of the University of Arizona by J. M. Patton and B. F. Stacey

Get ready for the jubilee, Hurrah! Hurrah!
Our teams will fight for victory, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The girls must sing, the boys must shout,
The faculty must all turn out,
And we'll give three cheers for every victory won--
Hurrah! Hurrah! Hip-hip! Hip-hip! Hurrah! *
Yes, we'll give three cheers for every vict'ry won,

Once we were only "kids," you know, Hurrah! Hurrah!
But healthy "kids" will always grow, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The other fellows whipped us then,
But now we all are grown to men;
So we'll give three cheers for every vict'ry won--
Hurrah! Hurrah! Hip-hip! Hip-hip! Hurrah!
Yes, we'll give three cheers for every vict'ry won.

From Maine to California, Hurrah! Hurrah!
From Florida to Canada, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The Red and Blue shall honored be--
Loved banner of our 'Varsity--
Then we'll give three cheers for every vict'ry won--
Hurrah! Hurrah! Hip-hip! Hip-hip! Hurrah!
Yes, we'll give three cheers for every vict'ry won.

It will not do to simply say, Hurrah! Hurrah!
We'll do our duty day by day, Hurrah! Hurrah!
We'll train ourselves, and do it well,
Then meet the foe and give them--w-e-l-l--
We will give three cheers for every vict'ry won--
Hurrah! Hurrah! Hip-hip! Hip-hip! Hurrah!
Yes, we'll give three cheers for every vict'ry won.

U. OF A.
TUNE: The Gold and Olive
B. F. Stacey

On the plains of Arizona,
'Neath an ever cloudless sky,
Far away from serging ocean,
And the storm-bird's plaintive cry;
With the mountains round about her--
Where the "Red Men" once roamed free
And her ensign proudly waving
Stands our dear old 'Varsity.

Chorus--

Let the Red and Blue be greeted
With a strong and cordial cheer,
Let our hearts be ever loyal
To our Alma Mater dear.
Now the dread Apache war songs
Strike no terror to our hearts,
And the Papagos and Pima
Are engaged in peaceful arts--
And the guns of old Fort Lowell
Need no longer guard the way,
For we gradu'ly replaced her
With our dear old U. of A.

Chorus--

Let her worthy sons and daughters
For their Alma Mater stand,
Shielding jealously her honor
In one brave unbroken band;
Let them hold aloft her banner
With a stout and steady arm,
Rallying her children 'round it
From the town, the mine and farm.

Chorus-

Let us always sing her praises
With a voice that's clear and strong,
Filling all the air around us
With the melody of song;
Let us give to her the homage
Which is due from you and me,
And hold sacred in our mem'ry
Our dear University.
