The Cougar Song (aka The Cougar Fight Song)
Brigham Young University

By Clyde D. Sandgren

Rise all loyal cougars and hurl your challenge to the foe.
You will fight, day or night, rain or snow.
Loyal, strong, and true
Wear the white and blue.
While we sing, get set to spring.
Come on Cougars it's up to you. Oh!


Rise and shout, the Cougars are out
along the trail to fame and glory.
Rise and shout, our cheers will ring out
As you unfold your vict'ry story.

On you go to vanquish the foe for Alma Mater's sons and daughters.
As we join in song, in praise of you, our faith is strong.
We'll raise our colors high in the blue
And cheer our Cougars of BYU.

College Song
Brigham Young University

By Annie Pike Greenwood

All hail the College that we love
At the throne the throne of wisdom's sway,
O let us lift our songs above
The thronging multitude today.

No pride nor riches here may sue
The head the heart the hand united must be true.
Be true to thee our white and blue,
When they join our happy band


Then cheer anew for the B. Y. U.
We've come to work to live to do.
We'll raise our standard, bear it through
Our hearts are true to the B. Y. U.

No college emblem half so sweet
As our colors pure and true,
No college banner that we greet
Like thee, our dear old white and blue.

No youth its beauty e'er denies
Such tho't no maid allows for blue is in her eyes,
For blue is in her eyes,
And of white her thoughtful brow.
