Fight Songs

  1. S.U. Alma Mater

    Played after every game regardless of the outcome

    Where the vale of Onondaga

    Meets the eastern sky

    Proudly stands our Alma Mater

    On her hilltop high.

    Flag we love! Orange! Float for aye-

    Old Syracuse, o’er thee,

    Loyal be thy sons and daughters

    To thy memory.  


    When the evening twilight deepens and the shadows fall,

    Linger long the golden sunbeams on the western wall.

    Flag we love, Orange,

    Float for aye,

    Old Syracuse o’er thee!

    Loyal be thy sons and daughters

    To thy memory  


    When the shades of life shall gather, dark the heart may be,

    Still the ray of youth and love shall linger long o’er thee’.

    Flag we love, Orange,

    Float for aye,

    Old Syracuse o’er thee!

    Loyal be thy sons and daughters

    To thy memory

  2. Down the Field

    The school’s official fight song

    Out upon the gridiron stands old Syracuse,

    Warriors clad in orange and in blue,

    Fighting for the fame of Alma Mater.

    Soon those Crouse chimes will be ringing,

    Soon you’ll hear those fellows singing.

    Onondaga’s braves are out to win today,

    The sons of Syracuse are ready for the fray,

    The line holds like a wall and now the Orange has the ball,

    So ready for that old long yell. Rah! Rah! Rah!  



    Down, Down the field goes old Syracuse,

    Just see those backs hit the line and go thru’;

    Down, down the field they go marching,

    Fighting for the Orange staunch and true.

    Rah! Rah! Rah!

    Vict’ry’s in sight for old Syr-a-cuse,

    Each loyal son knows she ne’er more will lose,

    For we’ll fight, yes, we’ll fight, and with all our might

    For the glory of old Syracuse.
