Current William and 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!”
Previous William and Mary Fight Songs
From the 1931-1932 Indian Handbook:
Fight, Fight, Fight for the Indians
Oh, we will fight, fight, fight for the Indians,
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
Victory, circa 1929, by Oscar E. Wilkinson (Sheet music in the Special Collections Research Center, Earl Gregg Swem Library)
Rally and cheer the Indians, here they come!
Loyal and fearless heroes every one!
Fighting to praise our name and conquering for greater fame with courage of old,
So warriors raise your crest to glory for the best,
With might and main we cheer, cheer, cheer, we cheer for William and Mary,
March on to Victory.
Tricolors down the field to win today,
Faith everlasting never to yield,
Our varsity will always fight, fight, fight, fight,
Right on to victory!
