YEA, ALABAMA!

I found this song today, and I just had to post it...

"Let the Swanee Tiger scratch; Let the Yellow Jacket sting;
Let the Georgia Bulldog bite; Alabama still is right;
And whether win or lose we smile, for that's Bama's fighting style:
You're Dixie's football pride, Crimson Tide!
Yea, Alabama! Drown 'em Tide!
Every Bama Man's behind you, hit your stride!
Go teach the Bulldogs to behave!
Send the Yellow Jackets to a Watery Grave!
And if a man starts to weaken, that's his shame:
For Bama's pluck and grit have writ her name in Crimson Flame.
Fight on! Fight on! Fight on, men!
Remember the Rose Bowl, we'll win then.
Go, roll to vict'ry! Hit your stride!
You're Dixie's football pride, Crimson Tide!"

Roll Tide Roll!

This year we'll be takin' Big Al all the way to the top.  They learned their lesson in the swamp.  Grab some Swate Tae and watch some football!  Hold your horses, here come the elephants... ROLL TIDE ROLL!

Random interesting fact - the title "Crimson Tide" originated in 1907 during a game with our lifelong rivals, Auburn.  The game was played in the middle of a thunderstorm and Alabama, against all odds, pulled forward to a 6-6 tie.  Their usual white jerseys were stained red from the wet clay.  A reporter, seeing their jerseys, described them as "a crimson tide that drowned the Tigers".
