Alma Mater

Alma Mater we Hail thee, with loyal devotion,
And bring to thine altar our off'ring of praise,
Our hearts swell within us with joyful emotion,
As the name of old Brown in loud chorus we raise.
The happiest moments, of youth's fleeting hours,
We've passed neath the shade of these time honored walls . . .
And sorrows as transient as April's brief showers,
Have clouded our lives, in Brunonia's halls.

Ever True To Brown

We are ever true to Brown,
For we love our college dear,
And wherever we may go,
We are ready with a cheer,
And the people always say, (what do they say?)
That you can't outshine Brown men (and women!)
With their Rah! Rah! Rah!
And their Ki! Yi! Yi!
And their B,R,O,W . . . N
