University Songs


HAIL TO THEE

Oh, hail to thee, oh, hail to thee,

Mississippi State so fair,

Thy loyal daughters sing to thee,

Our college beyond compare,

Oh, hail to thee, oh, hail to thee,

Thy name an emblem of light.

We rally to thee, to the yellow and white.

(Repeat from first)

 

The spirit of our M.S.C. is one of loyalty

     And true fidelity.

It is the spirit of our glorious name

That gives our college its spread of fame.

The spirit of our M.S.C. is one of loyalty

     And true fidelity.

We raise our voice to you with all our hearts.

Sing Sis-A-Boom!

Sis-A-Boom!

Rah! Rah! Rah!

 

Here’s to our uniform of blue,

Here’s to our friends so staunch and true

And to the faculty and president so wise.

Our hearts’ allegiance never dies.

                        

Here’s to our ivy-covered walls

Chapel and academic halls

And to the golden days

That we have spent with thee,

Our dear old M.S.C.

     MI-double-SI-double-SI-double-PI,

     MI-double-SI-double-SI-double-PI,

     ST-ST-STATE-State.

 

Here’s to our uniform of blue,

Here’s to our friends so staunch and true

And to the faculty and president so wise.

Our hearts’ allegiance never dies.

 

Here’s to our ivy-covered walls

Chapel and academic halls

And to the golden days

That we have spent with thee,

Our dear old M.S.C.

ALMA MATER

Serene as the dawning

Your promise now unfolds

To new heights of wisdom

Proclaiming truth foretold

With courage undaunted

Honor the challenge,

Guiding your purpose bold.

Sing praise to our great Alma Mater,

Oh, sing and cherish your mem’ries forever.

Profound our allegiance;

Secure our belief in God.

This creed of our heritage

Illumines the path untrod.

MAGNOLIA CHAIN SONG

To you, college comrades,

Dear friends of our youth,

We tell of our love in our song

Though distance may part us,

Our hearts will enshrine

Mem’ries of days that are gone.

Chain of magnolias we carry today,

Emblem of hopes and of fears.

Its flowers may perish, its petals may fall,

But it binds us to you through the years.

FRIENDS

We were strangers for such a long time

But now we’re friends till the end of time.

Our hearts were joined together

By the mighty bonds of love

The bonds of love.

 

We met one September.

I’ll always remember

 The tears we’ve shed here

The joys we’ve shared here

And as we leave here,

May we always be friends,

     Always be friends.

     God bless my friends.

     Good-bye, my friends.

FRESHMAN CLASS SONG

We are the freshmen

Oh, the freshmen are we

We’re razzed by the seniors

‘Cause we’re green as can be.

We know we’re the best that can be

‘Cause now we’re members of M.S.C.

We’re sorry for the Seniors

‘Cause it’s their last year

Oh, say by golly, we’re glad we’re here

Four more years for us

We’ll be the best or bust!

Darn it all, we’re glad we are

The Freshman Class!

SOPHOMORE CLASS SONG

     Hey, Hey Sophomores!

We’re the best you know.

Hey, Hey Sophomores,

Get up and let us go -

Got the Spirit -

Got just what it takes -

We’re not behind the eight ball.

We’re playing for high stakes.

JUNIOR CLASS SONG

We are the Juniors of M.S.C.

We’re out to win another victory

We’ve got the spirit

You can’t surpass

We are the dear old Junior Class.

SENIOR CLASS SONG

Hail, Senior Spirit!

Our class stands highest.

Four years we’ve been here,

Now we’re the finest.

First we were freshmen,

Sophomores and juniors.

We are on top now -

Hail to the Senior Class!
