On Bison



On Bison carry the fight,
State is backing you.
Green and yellow colors bright,
To them we will be true.
State Bison!
Fight them right back to the goal,
A victory for our name.
On You Bison, Fight You Bison,
Stampede and win this game.

The Yellow and The Green


Words by A.E. Minard
Music by C. S. Putnam


Ho! a cheer for Green and Yellow,
Up with Yellow and the Green;
They're the shades that deck our prairies
Far and wide with glorious sheen,
Fields of waving green in springtime,
Golden yellow in the fall-
How the great high-arching heaven
Looks and laughs upon it all!
