Fight Songs

  1. “Brown University Alma Mater”

    Alma Mater! we hail thee with loyal devotion,
    And bring to thine altar our off’ring of praise;
    Our hearts swell within us, with joyful emotion,
    As the name of Old Brown in loud chorus we raise.
    The happiest moments of youth’s fleeting hours,
    We’ve passed, ’neath the shade of these time-honored walls,
    And sorrows as transient as April’s brief showers
    Have clouded our life in Brunonia’s halls.

    And when we depart from thy friendly protection,
    And boldly launch out upon life’s stormy main,
    We’ll oft look behind us, with grateful affection,
    And live our bright college days over again.
    When from youth we have journeyed to manhood’s high station,
    And hopeful young scions around us have grown,
    We’ll send them, with love and deep veneration,
    As pilgrims devout, to the shrine of Old Brown.

    And when life’s golden autumn with winter is blending,
    And brows, now so radiant, are furrowed by care;
    When the blightings of age on our heads are descending.
    With no early friends all our sorrows to share; –
    Oh! then, as in memory backward we wander,
    And roam the long vista of past years adown,
    On the scenes of our student life often we’ll ponder,
    And smile, as we murmur the name of Old Brown.

  2. “Ever True to Brown”

    We are ever true to Brown,
    For we love our college dear,
    And wherever we may go,
    We are ready with a beer,
    And the people always say,
    That you can’t out drink Brown men (and women!)
    With a scotch and rye and a whiskey dry,
    And a B-O-U-R-B-O-N.

  3. “Brown Cheering Song”

    When Brunonia’s Big Brown Team is in the game,
    And the whole line is fighting to guard her name,
    And the Bear growls like thunder as the backs crash by,
    There’s a killing on the Old Hill tonight.

    Brunonia’s banners are waving in triumph on the hill,
    Brunonia’s cohorts are cheering for the bear has made its kill,
    CHEER (Rah! Rah!)
    This day is Brown’s, Brown’s forever,
    let the vanquished count the cost,
    So rise, rise and cheer, boys,
    till the last white line is crossed.

  4. “Brown Forevermore”

    Our boys are out there fighting,
    Like they’ve never fought before.
    They’re crashing and they’re smashing

    Let’s give our ev’ry effort
    And we’ll help them go to town.
    And we will all be happy
    With a victory for Brown.

    (Sing 2nd Verse – Then Band Repeats Verse)
    Let’s give a cheer for dear old Brown,
    and her team of valiant men,
    We’ll raise our voices to the sky,
    for we will win again,
    We’ll back our team with all our might,
    just to raise a winning score,
    Because it’s fight, fight for Brown boys,
    and for Brown forevermore.

  5. “I’m a Brown Man Born”

    Here’s to good old Brown, drink her down, drink her down.

    Here’s to good old Brown, she’s the jolliest place in town,
    Drink her down, drink her down, drink her down, down, down.

    I’m a Brown man born, and a Brown man bred,
    And when I die, I’ll be a Brown man dead.
    For it’s rah, rah, Bruno-nonia, rah, rah, Bruno-nonia,

    Give us a goal!
    Let’s go, Brown Bear, let’s go, wow!

    Brown Bear, we hear you growling,
    Go at them now and bite and scratch and hug!
    In all your victories, we’ll be rejoicing,
    And in defeat we’ll still be backing you the same as ever;

    To cheer once more as before for dear old Brown!

    And beat the vanquished down;
    So give a cheer, cheer, cheer for Bruno’s team,
