Penn has seen its share of amazing athletes come to play on its fields. But any Quaker will tell you that teamwork and enthusiasm come from the stands as well.

You can be sure that anywhere a Penn team is competing, Penn fans will be there to cheer them on. These three songs are the highlights of any Penn fan's handbook.

*Anytime Penn scores, students burst into the celebratory "Battle Cry of Penn."

Hang Jeff Davis on a sour apple tree

Down sent McGinty to the bottom of the sea

She's my Annie, and I'm her Joe,

So listen to my tale of


Got any ice today lady?


Giddey up (FUCK YOU!)




Oh Pennsylvan-i-a!

*After the third quarter, Penn fans sing "Drink a Highball," a.k.a the "Toast Song." Originally the song was accompanied by a drink. That tradition has been replaced by a shower of toast thrown on the field.

Drink a highball, at nightfall,

Be good fellows while you may

For tomorrow may bring sorrow,

So tonight, let's all, be gay (get laid!)

Tell the story, of the glory,

Of Pennsylvan-i-a,

Drink a highball, and be jolly

Here's a toast to dear old Penn!

*After every major University event Penn students, alumni, faculty and fans join together to chant "The Red and the Blue."

Come all ye loyal classmen now,

In hall and campus through,

Lift up your hearts and voices

For the royal Red and Blue.

Fair Harvard has her crimson,

Old Yale her colors too,

But for dear Pennsylvan-i-a,

We wear the Red and Blue.

Hurrah! Hurrah! Pennsylvan-i-a,

Hurrah for the Red and the Blue!

Hurrah, Hurrah, Hurrah, Hurrah!

Hurrah for the Red and the Blue!
