*UNK*

There’s blue in the Trails and Rails,
As well
As the Museum of Nebraska Art,
There’s blue on the Kearney
Country Club rugs,
&
The Meadowlark Hills
Golf Course carts.

Blue moves through
Great Platte Archway,
As well as Apollo and Harmon Park,
Blue over sandhills and the Hilltop Mall,
Real Boys in Blue—not Paul Blart.

There’s blue in our
breweries, lounges, and cafés,
There’s even blue in district courts
that comes from Nebraska;
There’s blue moving out from within our school—
Throughout the town of
Kearney, Nebraska.

Have you ever wanted to spread your colors?
Seen on every sidewalk and person—
To a man?
Then come to Kearney, Nebraska,
Because at UNK,
You can.

When you make it up to Downtown Kearney,
And you are ready to paint the town blue,
Make sure you deliver a message from the school:
Tell them that
Louie sent you.
