The lyrics and music were written by G.E. Leftwich, Jr.
Duke, we thy anthems raise
For all thy praises untold;
We'll sing for the Blue and White
Whose colors we unfold.
Firm stands her line of blue
For they are loyal through and through,
Fighting with the spirit true
All for the love of old D.U.
Fight, we'll fight with all our strength and might;
Win, we can! So here we give a hand:
Hey, Rah, Rah, Rah, Rah,
The lyrics to the song are relatively unknown among the Duke student population; because of this, some students repeatedly sing the words "Blue and White" in place of the actual lyrics when the song is played. However, the students chant a separate "D-U-K-E" at the end of the song.
