Dynamite

Dynamite, Dynamite
When VANDY starts to fight.
Down the field with blood to yield,
If need be, save the shield.
If vict’ry’s won, when battle’s done,
Then VANDY’s name will rise in fame.
But, Win or lose,
The Fates will choose,
And VANDY’s game will be the same.
Dynamite, Dynamite
When VANDY starts to fight!
Fight!

Alma Mater

(Text by Robert F. Vaughn, 1907)

On the city’s western border
Reared against the sky
Proudly stands our Alma Mater
As the years roll by.
Forward ever be thy watchword,
Conquer and Prevail.
Hail to thee our Alma Mater,
Vanderbilt, All Hail!
Cherished by the sons and daughters,
Mem’ries sweet shall throng
Round our hearts, O Alma Mater,
As we sing our song.
