“Illinois Loyalty”

We’re loyal to you Illinois,
We’re “Orange and Blue,” Illinois,
We’ll back you so stand
‘Gainst the best in the land,
For we know you have sand, Illinois,
Rah! Rah!
So crack out that ball Illinois,
We’re backing you all Illinois;
Our team is our fame protector,
On! boys, for we expect a vict’ry from you Illinois!

Che-he! Che-ha! Che-ha-ha-ha!
Go Illini go!
Che-he! Che-ha! Che-ha-ha-ha!
Go Illini go!
Illinois! Illinois! Illinois!

Fling out that dear old flag of Orange and Blue,
Lead on your sons and daughters, fighting for you;
Like men of old, on giants placing reliance, shouting defiance
Oskee wow-wow!
Amid the broad green plains that nourish our land,
For honest Labor and for Learning we stand,
And unto thee we pledge our heart and hand,
Dear Alma Mater Illinois.

“Oskee Wow Wow”

Old Princeton yells her Tiger,
Wisconsin her Varsity,
And they give the same old RAH! RAH! RAH!
For each university,
But the yell that always thrills me,
And fills my heart with joy,
Is the good old Oskee-wow-wow
That they yell at Illinois.

Oskee-wow-wow Illinois!
Our eyes are all on you.
Oskee-wow-wow Illinois!
Wave your Orange and your Blue, RAH! RAH!
As the team trots out before you,
Every man stand up and yell,
Back the team to gain a victory,
Oskee-wow-wow Illinois! HEY!

Teddy Roosevelt may be famous,
And his name you often hear,
But it’s heroes on the football field
Each college man holds dear.
We think with pride of Roberts,
Artie Hall and Heavy, too.
Oskee-wow-wow for the wearers
Of the Orange and the Blue!

(Repeat Chorus)
