Georgetown/ George Washington Rivalry

Fight Songs

  1. There Goes Old Georgetown

    fight song

    It’s been so long since last we met
    Lie down forever, lie down
    Oh, have you any money to bet
    Lie down forever, lie down!

    There goes old…Georgetown
    Straight for a…touchdown
    See how they…gain ground
    Lie down forever, lie down
    Lie down forever, lie down!

    Rah! Rah! Rah!
    Hurrah for Georgetown
    Cheer for victory today
    ‘Ere the sun has sunk to rest,
    In the cradle of the west
    In the clouds will proudly float the Blue and Gray.

    We’ve heard those loyal fellows up at Yale
    Brag and boast about their ‘Boola-Boola’
    We’ve heard the Navy yell, we’ve listened to Cornell
    We’ve heard the sons of Harvard tell
    How Crimson lines could hold them
    ‘Choo! Choo! Rah! Rah!’, dear to Holy Cross
    The proud old Princeton tiger is never at a loss
    But the yell of all the yells,
    The yell that wins the day
    Is the ‘HOYA, HOYA SAXA!’ of the dear old Blue and Gray.
