The Michigan State Spartan band performing the fight song

Michigan State Fight Song

The Michigan State Fight Song is the official fight song of MSU.  The song was created in 1915 by Francis Irving Lankey, a Michigan State Spartan cheerleader.   Lyricist Arthur Sayles helped create the song, by combining original lyrics with the melody from an early 20th Century hymn called "Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus."  Here is the Michigan State Spartans fight song:   

On the banks of the Red Cedar;
There's a school that's known to all;
Its specialty is winning,
And those Spartans play good ball
Spartan teams are never beaten,
All through the game they fight;
Fight for the only colors:
Green and White.

Go right through for MSU,
Watch the points keep growing,
Spartan teams are bound to win,
They're fighting with a vim!
Rah! Rah! Rah!
See their team is weakening,
We're going to win this game,
Fight! Fight! Rah! Team, Fight!
Victory for MSU!
