Music by Alan T. Waterman; lyrics by Curtis R. Beresford.
The Red and Black shall triumph, as we’re struggling down the field!
Oh fight for Cincinnati, McMicken’s foes shall yield;
Remember men, the honor, that hangs upon the game;
Remember you are battling now for old McMicken’s fame!
Fight, Cincinnati, and show the foe who holds the sway;
For the Red and Black, shall drive them back, and win the game today;
Fight Cincinnati: the vict’ry’s ours again,
The bonfire’s light will flare tonight, the Red and Black shall reign!
