More Fighting Irish Music!

Hike, Notre Dame

The march is on
No brain or brawn,
Can stop the charge of fighting men,
Loud sings the cry,
A grim defy,
Of hard attack let loose again.
O it's hike, hike, hike to victory,
The call to rise and strike,
For Notre Dame men are winning,
When Notre Dame hears hike, hike, hike.

Hark to the cheering
Songs rising high,
Hark, hark to the roar,
As her ranks go marching by!
Shoulder to shoulder,
Chanting her glorious name,
Burn high your fires, 
And sing along for Notre Dame.

When Irish Backs Go Marching By

Rah! Rah! Rah!
Up! Notre Dame men answer the cry
Gathering foemen fling to the sky
Fight! Fight! Fight!
Brave hosts advancing challenging your name
March to the battle, Notre Dame!

And when the Irish backs go marching by
The cheering thousands shout their battle cry:
For Notre Dame men are marching into the game,
Fighting the fight for you, Notre Dame
And when the Irish line goes smashing through
They'll sweep the foemen's ranks away;
When Notre Dame men fight for Gold and Blue,
Then Notre Dame men will win the day.

Down the Line 

On down the line! Beside the glory of her name.
On down the line! Beneath the colors of an ancient fame.
On down the line! Another day for her proclaim.
Old Gold and Blue - You're going through -
Go down the line for Notre Dame.
