Alma Mater
Far Above Cayuga's Waters
With its waves of blue,
Stands our noble Alma Mater
Glorious to view.

Lift the chorus, speed it onward,
Loud her praises tell.
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater,
Hail, all hail, Cornell!

Far Above the busy humming
Of the bustling town;
Reared against the arch of Heaven,
Looks she proudly down.

Lift the chorus, speed it onward,
Loud her praises tell.
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater,
Hail, all hail, Cornell!

Davy, Cornell's Fight Song
Give my regards to Davy,
Remember me to Tee Fee Crane,
Tell all the pikers on the hill,
That I'll be back again!
Tell them just how I busted,
Lapping up the high, high-ball.
We'll all have drinks
at Theodore Zinks,
When I get back next Fall!

My Old Cornell
Oh, I want to go back to the old days,
Those good old days on the hill.
Back to my Cornell,
For that's where they all yell,
Cornell, I yell, Cornell. (Cornell!)
Far above Cayuga's waters
I hear those chiming bells.
Oh, I'm longing and yearning
And always returning
To my old Cornell.

New Cornell Fight Song (NCFS)
C-O-R-N-E-double-L,
Win the game and then ring the bell.
(ding!)
What's the big intrigue?
We're the best in the Ivy League,
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Score the point that puts us ahead,
Knock 'em dead, Big Red!
1-2-3-4,
Who are we for?
Can't you tell?
Old Cornell!
(GO RED!)

Cheer Cornell (WCFS)
Cheer Cornell, Come on and give a yell,
We all shout RED!
The team is marching in.
Freshmen year 'til Senior,
Every Cornell fan knows
It is destiny the Big Red will win.
Watch out all,
the team is coming through.
We are the GREATEST in the Ivy League.
Root for the team in Red and White.
Cheer Cornell with all your might.
Our strength takes us through every fight,
That's why we yell LET'S GO RED!

Evening Song
When the sun fades far away,
In the crimson of the west.
And the voices of the day
Murmur low and sink to rest.

Music with the twilight falls
O'er the dreaming lake and dell.
'Tis an echo from the walls
Of our own, our fair Cornell.

Welcome night and welcome rest,
Fading music fair thee well.
Joy to all, we love the best.
Love to thee, our fair Cornell.

Music with the twilight falls
O'er the dreaming lake and dell.
'Tis an echo from the walls
Of our own, our fair Cornell.

Bone On the Range
Bone, Bone on the Range
Where the flutes and the piccolos play
Where seldom is heard,
A discouraging trumpet
And the beer is not flat all day.

Bone, Bone on the Range
Where the beer and bone rangers play
Where seldom is heard,
A discouraging trumpet
And the flutes are not flat all day.

We Are Da Bones
We are the Bones, We are the future.
We are the ones who make a better band,
So let's start drinking.
There's a choice we're making,
Labatt's or Molson Dry.
It's true we make a better band,
So drink with me.

We are the Bones, We're never sober.
We are the ones with the well lubed slides
In seven positions.
Don't you envy us?
We are such well hung brass.
All we need is a keg of beer
and a frosty glass.

King of the Bones
Trailers for sale or rent,
Rooms to let, 50 cents.
No phone, no pool, no pets.
I ain't got no cigarettes, it takes
Two hours of pushing brooms
To buy an 8 by 12, four bit room, I'm a
Man of means, by no means
King of the Bones.

Third boxcar midnight train,
Destination Bangor, Maine.
Old worn out suit and shoes,
I don't pay no union dues. I smoke
Old stogies that I have found.
Short, but not to big or round. I'm a
Man of means, by no means
King of the Bones.

(TableWine solo....FINALLY!!):
I know every engineer on every train,
All of their children, and all of their names
Every handout in every town
And every lock that ain't locked when no-one's around

Trailers for sale or rent,
Rooms to let, 50 cents.
No phone, no pool, no pets.
I ain't got no cigarettes, it takes
Two hours of pushing brooms
To buy an 8 by 12, four bit room, I'm a
Man of means, by no means
King of the Bones.

The Bud Song
We are the trombones, we have big valves and slides.
We get the most cheers from the fans on all sides.
We're so much better, most every day.
As for the trumpets they can't play!

We are the trombones, we'll drink all of your beer.
Most of the woodwinds call us "honey" or "dear."
As for the trumpets, they can't get dates,
They play like shit and smell like apes!
Da da da da da da da daaaaa.

We're Da Bones (Let it Snow)
Oh the weather outside is frightful,
But the Bones are so delightful,
And we all have such mellow tones,
We're the Bones, We're the Bones, We're the Bones!

The percussion plays with their sticks,
The trumpets are uptight pricks,
We're glad to have it known,
We're the Bones, We're the Bones, We're the Bones.

With some peppermint schnapps in me,
And some warmth from a feminine form,
And her hand placed where it should be,
All through the night I'll be warm!

Oh the weather outside is frightful,
But the Bones are so delightful,
And we all have such mellow tones,
We're Da Bones, We're Da Bones, We're Da Bones!

Why Do Bones Suddenly Appear
Why do bones suddenly appear
Every time, there is beer?
Just Like me, the long to be
Closer to booze.

Underbone
When trumpets in this world appear
To rid us of our hope and cheer,
What hero should then appear,
To bring us all our precious beer?
Underbone! Underbone. Underbone! Underbone.
Slide of lightning, sound of thunder
Drinking all the table under
Underbone. Under-underunderbone. Uuunderbone.

(AND NO SAINTS LYRICS, Damnit!)
