"Fun? Well Rather" The Diary of Virginia Clay McClure - part of the Sesquicentennial Stories Series

October 1910

Ruth’s New Song for the Rally

With a boom and a bang and a bing,
We’re here to make things ring.
With a jing and a jangle, a jump and a tangle,
The game will now begin.
Kerflunk! The ball they sling,
By jings that’s the thing!
It’s over the goal, they’re in the hole,
Just hear Kentucky sing-

When Kentucky’s foot-ball boys come on the field
The other team is going to have to yield!
For K.S.U. lets yell, yell, yell, yell, yell,
For Ky. State let’s “       
                                 “ like 

And fight for every yard,
Circle ends and buck their line so hard
That we’ll leave old Central on the sword,
Rah! Rah!! Rah!!!
Oh! The moon shines tonight on poor old Tulane,
She’s got an awful pain,
We licked her in the game;
When a team goes up against Kentucky
They’re mighty lucky
To come out whole.”

Rah, rah, rah, rah, rah
Rah, rah, rah, rah, rah
Rah, rah, rah, rah, rah
Team! Team! Team!

Here comes Kentucky, the team that
Always wins in football,
And every fall, we beat them all
The stunts we’ll pull off will show old
Central how to play the game,
In all but name we’re champions now.
