Colgate Fight Song!

Fight, fight, fight for dear old Colgate!

With heart and hand now, we’ll win for thee!

Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Alma Mater,

On to victory we’re marching!

Foes shall bend their knees before us,

And pay their homage to power so great,

So let us send out a cheer, and banish all fear,

While we are fighting hard for Old Colgate!
