Here Come the Yankees is the official theme song of the New York Yankees baseball team.

It has been the official team anthem since 1967, when it was composed by Bob Bundin and Lou Stallman. Bundin and Stallman were associated at the time with Columbia Records, whose then-owner, the media conglomerate CBS, was also the parent company of the Yankees. It was recorded by the Sid Bass Orchestra and Chorus. The instrumental version airs at the top of all Yankees radio broadcasts and was also used on Yankee telecasts until 1990.

The version with lyrics begins:

Y! A! N! K! E! E! S!
Here come the Yankees
Let's get behind and cheer the Yankees
They're gonna learn to fear the Yankees
Everyone knows they play to win, cause
They're the New York Yankees
