    Down the field we we swing in perfect trim
    Behind the team we’ve played to win
    And as we swing we sing a marching song;
    And the song we sing is on the theme
    Of Lafayette and of Her team.
    We’ll swing the Chorus as we swing along.

    On, Lafayette! On Lafayette!
    On, on to greater deeds, Lafayette,
    Give, Lafayette! Give, Lafayette,
    Give, give the best that’s in you
    And hope for a vict’ry.
    Fight the fight and keep your heads unbowed;
    Win, you’re victorious!
    Lose, just as glorious!
    Men of Lafayette, of you we sing.

  2. “Lafayette Alma Mater”

    We’ll gather by the twilight’s glow
    In front of old Pardee,
    In all the world no other scene,
    So fair, so dear to me.
    O Lafayette, O Lafayette,
    To thee our voices raise!
    While loyal lips and loyal hearts
    Unite to sing thy praise.

    We’ll gather by the twilight’s glow
    In front of old Pardee,
    In all the world no other scene,
    So fair, so dear to me.

    And future years shall not erase
    These gems of mem’ry rare,
    But oft we’ll live the scenes again,
    Impressed so firmly there.
    O Lafayette, O Lafayette,
    O joyous college days!
    E’re while these loyal hearts shall beat,
    We’ve loyal lips to praise.
