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!
