The Michigan Wolverines have the most all-time wins and the highest winning percentage in college football history. It has, in my opinion, the most awesome helmet and it’s fight song has their competitors shaking in their shoes before they ever arrive at the gate. Michigan Stadium has record-breaking attendance and many rivalries. The annual season-ending game against Ohio State was once voted as ESPN’s best sports rivalry.

That being said – ARE YOU READY FOR SOME WOLVERINE FOOTBALL?

The greatest college football march ever composed! So said the legendary John Philip Sousa. “The Victors” is called the “1812 Overture” and “Stars & Stripes” of all college football marches or fight songs.

In case you don’t know the words and I KNOW you want to sing along, I have included a second version just for YOU. Most of the time, only the chorus is sung. Look below for the full lyrics.

Another season of football and I am so excited. I love my Michigan, but I watch and enjoy a good game no matter who it is. I want to spend my Saturdays, Sundays, Mondays and Thursdays in front of the TV. I do not want a knock on the door or a ring on the phone. Please honor my wishes and DON’T BOTHER ME. Not only will I bite, I may……………

The Michigan Fight Song

It was composed by UM student Louis Elbel in 1898.

Now for a cheer they are here, trimphant!

Here they come with banners flying,

In stalwart step they’re nighing,

With shouts of Vict’ry crying,

We hurrah, hurrah, we greet you now, Hail!

Far we their praises sing

For the glory and fame they’ve bro’t us

Loud let the bells them ring

For here they come with banners flying

Far we their praises tell

For the glory and the fame they’ve bro’t us

Loud let the bell them ring

For here they come with banners flying

Here they come, Hurrah!

(chorus)

Hail! to the victors valiant

Hail to the conqu’ring heroes

Hail! Hail! to Michigan

The leaders and best!

Hail! to the victors valiant

Hail! to the conu’ring heroes

Hail! Hail! to Michigan,

The Champions of the West!

(break strain)

We cheer them

We cheer and cheer again

For Michigan, we cheer for Michigan

We cheer with might and main

WE cheer, cheer, cheer

With might and main we cheer!

(chorus)

An alternate set of lyrics were found in University athletic files circa the 1920s. Did Elbel write them – no one knows.

Hail! to our Alma Mater!

Hail! to dear old Ann Arbor

Hail! Hail! to Michigan

The Athens of the West!
