I was in the French Quarter and managed to get these Aggie fans (students?, band?) on film. They are singing the Aggie War Hymn. (That’s Texas A&M for those who haven’t caught up yet). Anyway, they were so loud and spirited that they were stopping both foot and car traffic in the French Quarter of New Orleans during Mardi Gras. I feel lucky to have seen this. Here are the lyrics to the song they were singing:
Goodbye to texas university,
so long to the orange and the white.
Good luck to the dear old Texas Aggies,
they are the ones who show the real old fight.
“The eyes of Texas are upon you,”
that is the song they sing so well (sounds like hell).
So goodbye to texas university,
we’re gonna beat you all to
Rough tough real stuff Texas A&M.
Saw varsity’s horns off, saw varsity’s horns off.
Saw varsity’s horns off, SHORT! Ay!
Varsity’s horns are sawed off, varsity’s horns are sawed off.
Varsity’s horns are sawed off, SHORT! Ayyyyyyyy!
