Fight songs

Official fight song: Up With the White and Gold

Oh, well, it's up with the White and Gold,
Down with the Red and Black,
Georgia Tech is out for a victory.
We will drop our battle-axe on Georgia's head,
When we meet her our team is sure to beat her.
Down on the farm there will be no sound
Till our bow-wows rip through the air;
When the battle is over Georgia's team will be found
With the Yellow Jackets swarming 'round!

Official fight song: Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech

I'm a ramblin' wreck from Georgia Tech
And a hell of an engineer--
A helluva, helluva, helluva, helluva, hell of an engineer,
Like all the jolly good fellows,
I drink my whiskey clear.
I'm a ramblin' wreck from Georgia Tech
And a hell of an engineer.


Oh! If I had a daughter, sir,
I'd dress her in White and Gold.
And put her on the campus
To cheer the Brave and Bold.
But if I had a son, sir,
I'll tell you what he'd do
He would yell, "To Hell with Georgia,"
like his daddy used to do.


Oh! I wish I had a barrel of rum
And sugar three thousand pounds,
A college bell to put it in
And a clapper to stir it round,
I'd drink to all good fellows
Who come from far and near.
I'm a ramblin', gamblin',
Hell of an engineer! Hey!

Official alma mater

Oh, sons of Tech, arise, behold!
The banner as it reigns supreme,
For from on high the White and Gold
Waves in its triumphant gleam.
The spirit of the cheering throng
Resounds with joy revealing
A brotherhood in praise and song,
In memory of the days gone by.
Oh, Scion of the Southland!
In our hearts you shall forever fly.


We cherish thoughts so dear for thee,
Oh, Alma Mater, in our prayer.
We plead for you in victory,
And in the victory we share!
But when the battle seems in vain
Our spirits never falter,
We're ever one in joy or pain,
And our union is a lasting bond.
Oh! May we be united.
Till the victory of life is won.
