“On, On, U of K”
On, On, U of K.
We are right for the fight today.
Hold that ball and hit that line;
Every Wildcat star will shine.
We’ll fight, fight, fight
For the blue and white,
As we roll to that goal, varsity.
And we’ll kick, pass and run
‘Till the battle is won,
And we’ll bring home the victory.
