    THE FIGHT SONG

    Oh, we’re from old Alexis. We’re not as big as Texas,
    But we’ve got what it takes to make a name!
    We’ve got lots of spirit and you’re gonna hear it,
    When we win this (football) game!*
    Oh, there’s a time for learning, but now it’s time for turning
    To our team who will get us what we want!
    Yes, our foes will suffer, when they see we’re tougher
    From Alexis I. duPont!
