Yellow and Green / On Bison
« on: September 14, 2006, 10:35:06 pm »
Well since alot of students dont even know what the Yellow and Green/On Bison is I thought I would add some information about it:

Yellow and Green

The Yellow and The Green
Words by A.E. Minard
Music by C. S. Putnam

Ho! a cheer for Green and Yellow,
Up with Yellow and the Green;
They?re the shades that deck our prairies
Far and wide with glorious sheen,
Fields of waving green in springtime,
Golden yellow in the fall?
How the great high-arching heaven
Looks and laughs upon it all!

Here in autumn throng the nations,
Just to gather in the spoil,
Throng on freight-cars from the cities,
Some to feast and some to toil,
Then the yellow grain flows eastward
And the yellow gold flows back;
Barren cities boast their plenty
And the prairies know no lack.

Hushed upon the boundless prairies
Is the bison?s thund?ring tread,
And the red man passes with him
On his spoilers? bounty fed.
But the Norse, the Celt and Saxon
With their herd increase, and find
Mid these fields of green and yellow
Plenty e?en for all mankind.

Ho! a cheer for Green and Yellow,
Up with Yellow and the Green;
They?re the shades that deck our prairies
Far and wide with glorious sheen,
Fields of waving green in springtime,
Golden yellow in the fall?
How the great high-arching heaven
Looks and laughs upon it all!

On Bison

On Bison
On Bison carry the fight,
State is backing you.
Green and yellow colors bright,
To them we will be true.
State Bison!
Fight them right back to the goal,
A victory for our name.
On You Bison, Fight You Bison,
Stampede and win this game.

"We are the Pride"

Verse:
We are the pride of North Dakota
State collegiates are we
Sons of the green and yellow prairies
Our colors will ever be
(Yell) State BISON!!
Cheer for our dear ol' alma mater
Proud and loyal are we
And we'll fight -- RAH! RAH!
Yes we'll fight -- RAH! RAH!
For North Dakota State U team.

Chorus:
Cheer for the Bison -- HIT 'EM AGAIN!  HIT 'EM AGAIN!
Cheer for the Bison -- HIT 'EM AGAIN!  HIT 'EM AGAIN!
Band refrain -- (Yell) FIGHT!
Band refrain -- (Yell) FIGHT!
Band refrain -- (Yell) FIGHT!
Repeat chorus.

Bison, Bison, Fight Fight Fight
Bison, Bison, Show Your Might

I think students should have to learn them, or at least recognize the songs.

They should throw it in more often, at least play the songs on campus more!
