‘Utah Man’ looks almost identical to 1885 frat song

University of Utah » Fight song’s lyrics very close to those of “My Name is Sigma Chi.”

< Previous Page

No other gang in college dares to meet us in a muss;

So fill your lungs and sing it out and shout it to the sky,

The Blue and Gold forever, I’m a loyal Sigma Chi! Hey!

And when we prom the avenue, all lined up in a row,

Then arm in arm and step in time as down the street we go;

And no matter if a freshman green or in a senior’s gown,

The people all admit we are the warmest gang in town.


We may not live forever on this jolly good old sphere,

But while we do we’ll live a life of merriment and cheer;

story continues below

And when our little day is done and night is drawing nigh,

With parting breath we’ll sing the praise of good old Sigma Chi.


Utah Fight Song

Utah Man

I am a Utah man, sir, and I live across the green.

Our gang, it is the jolliest that you have ever seen.

Our coeds are the fairest and each one’s a shining star.

Our yell, you hear it ringing through the mountains near and far.


Who am I, sir? A Utah man am I; A Utah man, sir, and will be till I die; Ki!Yi!
