Homecoming

The University of Missouri claims to be the originator of the tradition of homecoming.[6] Before 1911, games against the University of Kansas were played in Kansas City. However, a change in conference regulations required intercollegiate football games to be played on campus starting in 1911. Fearing that game attendance would be low, the new Missouri coach, C. L. Brewer, appealed with great success for the "Old Grads" to "Come Back Home" to boost attendance and help dedicate MU's new football field. The fans responded, swelling the crowd at Rollins Field in Columbia to more than ten thousand. MU, The NCAA, Trivial Pursuit, and Jeopardy! all verify that this game in 1911 was the first homecoming game. For other uses, see Homecoming (disambiguation). ...

First Verse


Old Missouri, fair Missouri
Dear old varsity.
Ours are hearts that fondly love thee
Here's a health to thee.


Chorus


Proud art thou in classic beauty
Of thy noble past
With thy watch words honour, duty,
Thy high fame shall last!


Second verse


Every student, man and maiden
Swells the glad refrain.
'Till the breezes, music laden
Waft it back again.


Chorus


Proud art thou in classic beauty
Of thy noble past
With thy watch words honour, duty,
Thy high fame shall last!


Fight Songs

The fight song(s) are used in several different combinations. The most recognizable (and longest) is Every True Son, Mizzou Cheer, and Fight Tiger all in a row. Fight Tigers can be used on its own and may have also been known as The Tiger Song of U of M many years ago.

Every true son, so happy hearted
Skies above us are blue.
There's a spirit so deep within us
Old Missouri, here's to you! (Rah! Rah!)
When the band plays the Tiger war song
And when the fray is through
We will tramp, tramp, tramp around the columns
With a cheer for old Mizzou!


Mizzou Cheer

Hit it! Hurray, hurrah! Mizzou! Mizzou!
Hurray, hurrah! Mizzou! Mizzou!
Hurray, Hurrah! And a bully for old Mizzou! Rah! Rah! Rah! Rah!
Mizzou-Rah! Mizzou-Rah! Mizzou-Rah! Tigers!


Fight Tiger

Fight, Tiger, fight for Old Mizzou.
Right behind you everyone is with you.
Break the line and follow down the field.
And you'll be, on the top, upon the top!
Fight, Tiger, you will always win.
Proudly keep the colors flying skyward.
In the end you'll win the victory,
So, Tigers, fight for Old Mizzou!


Give a Cheer

This song is a more recent addition, written by alumnus Carl E. Bolte.


Give a cheer for Mizzou's Tigers!
We will show 'em how to play.
Give a cheer for Mizzou's Tigers!
And our Tigers will win today.
We've got the team that will never retreat;
We've got the team they can never defeat!
Give a cheer for Mizzou's Tigers!
And our Tigers will win today!
Give a cheer for Mizzou's Tigers!
And our Tigers will win today!
