One of the greatest college football fight songs, "On Wisconsin" celebrates its 100th anniversary this year. The UW Marching Band website says:
“The melody of this famous song was composed in 1909 by W.T. Purdy, a corporation clerk who prior to that time had never set foot in
Written accounts of the earliest performances of On Wisconsin reveal that the first performance occurred on November 10, 1909, when it was sung by the ‘Glee Club’."
That was then....this is now.
Plunge right through that line!
Run the ball clear down the field,
A touchdown sure this time. (U rah rah)
Fight on for her fame
Fight! Fellows! - fight, fight, fight!
We'll win this game.
Stand up, Badgers, sing!
"Forward" is our driving spirit,
Loyal voices ring.
Raise her glowing flame
Stand, Fellows, let us now
Salute her name!
