Fight Hornet Fight


Fight Hornet Fight

"Fight, Hornet, Fight!" is the official fight song of California State University, Sacramento. It is most widely known for being played by the Sacramento State Marching Band after scores at Sacramento State football games, and during the band's pre-game and halftime shows. It is designed specifically for being played after a touchdown, field goal, extra point, or a safety.

Fight, Hornet, Fight! is also played as the band forms a tunnel for the football team as they enter Hornet Stadium before the beginning of each home game. After every Hornet win, the football team comes over to the sideline where the band's section is and sings along while the song is being played.

Fight, Hornet, Fight! was composed by Don McDonald, '52, in 1949. The current arrangement of the song was written by former Band Director Jeffrey Edom in 1997.

Lyrics

"Fight on, Sacramento State"
"Fight on to victory"
"The Hornet is on the wing,"
"The foe will know that we can show them"
"We’re meant for fame and glory,"
"All the World will know"
"The Hornet’s NEST is BEST in the WEST (Shout) BY TEST!"
"Sacramento State, (Shout) LET’S GO!!!"

"Go, Go, Go, Go, Go."
"Fight, Fight, Fight, Fight, Fight."
"Go, Fight, Go, Fight, Win."
