Music & Lyrics

O Cincinnati, magic name, I proudly to the world proclaim;
No sweeter word ever charmed my ear,
None to my heart was ever so dear,
A fountain of eternal youth, a tower of strength, a rock of truth.

Oh varsity, dear varsity, thy loyal children we will be,
Thy loyal, loyal children we will be.

Of wealth and station some may boast, of wide renown from coast to coast;
None nobler teachings did instill,
Than old McMicken on the hill,
The black and red banner floats on high, let all join in the battle cry.

Oh varsity, dear varsity, thy loyal children we will be,
Thy loyal, loyal children we will be.

Long may she live, her children's pride, and grow and prosper far and wide.
At all time let our motto be: stand first and last for old UC,
We dedicate with might and main, to Alma Mater this refrain:

Oh varsity, dear varsity, thy loyal children we will be,
Thy loyal, loyal children we will be.

Come on and give a cheer for dear Old Cincy.
Lift your voice in praises clear.
Show you're pulling hard for Cincy,
School we love and hold so dear.
Yea Cincy!
Loyal to our Alma Mater,
We will ever down the foe,
Fight! Boys! Fight! The battle is on!
Yea Bearcats! See us go!

The Red and Black shall triumph,
As we're struggling down the field!
Oh fight for Cincinnati, McMicken's foes shall yield:
Remember men, the honor, that hangs upon this game;
Remember you are battling now for old McMicken's fame!

Fight, Cincinnati, and show the foe who holds the sway;
For the Red and Black shall drive them back,
And win the game today:
Fight Cincinnati: the victory's ours again,
The bonfire's light will flare tonight,
The Red and Black shall reign!

Cheer Cincinnati, Cincy will win
Fight to the finish, never give in (Rah, Rah, Rah)
You do your best boys, we'll do the rest boys,
Onward to victory! Go Red, Go Black, Go Bearcats! Fight! Fight! Fight!
(Give me a) B-E-A-R-C-A-T-S Go UC!
