The catchy tune is well known to most college sports fans and has been consistently ranked as one of the 'best' and most original college fight songs. Although there are lyrics to the song (see below), it is not uncommon for Wildcat fans to stand and clap while the song is played, as opposed to singing the lyrics.
On, on, U of K, we are right for the fight today,
Hold that ball and hit that line;
Ev'ry Wildcat star will shine;
We'll fight, fight, fight, for the blue and white
As we roll to that goal, Varsity,
We will kick, pass and run, 'till the battle is won,
And we'll bring home the victory.
