Lyrics

When some loud bragger tries to put me down
And says his school is great
I tell him right away
"Now, what's the matter, buddy
Ain't you heard of my school?
It's number one in the state"
(Hey, hey, take it away, get that ball and fight!)

So be true to your school (rah, rah, rah, rah, sis, boom, bah)
Just like you would to your girl or guy (rah, rah, rah, rah, sis, boom, bah)
Be true to your school, now (rah, rah, rah, rah, sis, boom, bah)
Let your colours fly (rah, rah, rah, rah, sis, boom, bah)
Be true to your school (rah, rah, rah, rah, sis, boom, bah)

I got a letterman sweater (ah)
With a letter in front
I got for football and track (ah)
I'm proud to where it now
When I cruise around (ah)
The other parts of the town
I got a decal in back (ah)

So be true to your school (rah, rah, rah, rah, sis, boom, bah)
Just like you would to your girl or guy (rah, rah, rah, rah, sis, boom, bah)
Be true to your school, now (rah, rah, rah, rah, sis, boom, bah)
Let your colours fly (rah, rah, rah, rah, sis, boom, bah)
Be true to your school (do it again, do it again, we like it, we like it)

(Wah, wah, wah, wah, rah)
Come Friday we'll be jacked up on the football game (ah)
And I'll be ready to fight
We're gonna smash 'em, now (ah)
My girl will be working on her pom-poms, now
And she'll be yelling tonight (ah)

So be true to your school, now (rah, rah, rah, rah, sis, boom, bah)
Just like you would to your girl or guy (rah, rah, rah, rah, sis, boom, bah)
Be true to your school, now (rah, rah, rah, rah, sis, boom, bah)
Let your colours fly (rah, rah, rah, rah, sis, boom, bah)
Be true to your school (rah – push 'em back, push 'em back, way back!)

Rah, rah, rah, rah, sis, boom, bah
Rah, rah, rah, rah, sis, boom, bah
Rah, rah, rah, rah, sis, boom, bah
Rah, rah, rah, rah...
