Fight Song[edit]

The Baker University Wildcats Fight Song lyrics are listed below:[9]

Lyrics

It’s that old Baker Spirit, Fight to Win,
That leads us on to victory;
We breathe it in the air; we find it everywhere;
It thrills us through and through;
A Son that’s true can’t say the
Old gray mare she ain’t what she used to be, for
Baker’s just the same;
She’s got the same old Pep,
She’ll never lose her Rep,
We’re going to win this game!
