Bear Down, Chicago Bears

Bear Down, Chicago Bears is the fight song of the Chicago Bears of the National Football League.

The song was written in 1941, the year after the Bears had shocked the professional football world by defeating the Washington Redskins in the NFL Championship Game by the score of 73-0, which remains the largest shutout margin in any game in the history of the NFL.

The listed author on the published piece is Jerry Downs, a pseudonym for Al Hoffman who is a member of the Songwriter's Hall Of Fame.

At home games, the song is played every time the Bears score, even after a safety, as was made clear during the NFC Championship Game on January 21, 2007.

Bear down, Chicago Bears! Make every play clear the way to victory!
Bear down, Chicago Bears! Put up a fight with a might so fearlessly!
We'll never forget the way you thrilled the nation with your T formation.
Bear down, Chicago Bears, and let them know why you're wearing the crown.
You're the pride and joy of Illinois. Chicago Bears, bear down!
