Fight Songs

  1. Stein Song

    School song

    Fill the steins to dear old Maine
    Shout ’til the rafters ring
    Stand and drink a toast once again
    Let every loyal Maine man sing
    Drink to all the happy hours
    Drink to the careless days
    Drink to Maine our Alma Mater
    The college of our hearts always

    To the trees, to the sky
    To the Spring in its glorious happiness.
    To the youth, to the fire
    To the life that is moving and calling us.
    To the Gods, to the Fates
    To the rulers of men and their destinies.
    To the lips, to the eyes
    To the girls who will love us some day.
