Fight Song & Alma Mater
FSU FIGHT SONG
You've got to fight fight fight for FSU,
You've got to scalp 'em Seminoles.
You've got to win win win win the game,
and roll on down and make those goals.
For FSU is on the warpath now,
and at the battles end she's great.
For it's fight fight fight for victory,
the Seminoles of Florida State.
Florida State! Florida State! Florida State!
The 1950 Homecoming half-time show included a dedication ceremony naming the stadium in honor of university President Doak Campbell. There was also a special performance by the band, christening it the Marching Chiefs and premiering the "FSU Fight Song."
Student Doug Alley wrote the lyrics to the fight song and Thomas Wright, Professor of Music, composed the score. Mr. Wright owns the rights to the song and allows FSU to use the Fight Song every year in exchange for 2 season tickets.
FSU ALMA MATER
"High Over Towering Pines"
High over towering pines our voices swell,
Praising those Gothic spires,
we love so well.
Here sons and daughters stand,
faithful and true,
Hailing our alma mater,
