I'm a Jayhawk

One of the traditions freshmen learned Monday was the KU fight song: Talk about the Sooners, The Cowboys and the Buffs Talk about the Tigers and his tail Talk about those Wildcats And those Cornhuskin' boys But I'm a bird to make 'em weep and wail 'Cause I'm a Jay, Jay, Jay, Jay, Jayhawk Up at Lawrence on the Kaw 'Cause I'm a Jay, Jay, Jay, Jay, Jayhawk With the sis-boom, hip hurrah! Got a bill that's big enough To twist a Tiger's tail, Husk some corn and listen to the Cornhuskers wail 'Cause I'm a Jay, Jay, Jay, Jay, Jayhawk Riding on a Kansas gale.
