would be impressed if you knew all three!
Let's face it, not nearly enough of us know the lyrics to Duke's alma mater,
or to the official fight songs, and no, Devil With The Blue Dress On doesn't
count. Besides, that would make Duke the only school in the country with a
transvestive fight song.
Not that there's anything wrong with that (gratuitous Seinfeld reference).Â
Anyway, as a public service, here are the fight songs, and also lyrics. These
are RA files so they shouldn't take long to load. If they were MP3, we'd say
slap 'em on a Rio or something, but still, the quality is pretty good.
And please let us know if we made any stupid link mistakes or anything.
Dear Old Duke
Dear old Duke, thy name we'll sing,
To thee our voices raise, we'll raise
To thee our anthems ring in everlasting praise.
And though on life's broad sea,
Our fates may far us bear;
We'll ever turn to thee, Our Alma Mater dear.
Blue & White
Duke we thy anthems raise
For all the praises untold
We'll sing for the Blue & White
Whose colors we unfold
Firm stands her line of blue
For they are loyal through and through
Fighting with the spirit true
All for the love of old D.U.
Fight, we'll fight
With all our strength and might - Hey!
Win we can!
So here we lend a hand:
Hey! Rah Rah Rah Rah D-U-K-E Rah!
Fight Blue Devils Fight
Fight Fight Blue Devils
Fight for Duke and the Blue & White
March on through
For the slamdunk'sÂ there for you
Go get 'em!
Duke is gonna win tonight
So turn on the steam, team
Fight Blue Devils, Fight!
