*Cincinnati*

Don’t believe us when we say that the Red & Black triumphs in
The Big East,
Or that the Bearcats are
Academic Beasts;
Don’t believe that there is a magic in our stance
&
In our dance.
Or that our contributions have helped
America Advance.
No,
Don’t believe that the Cincy experience—
Is worth
Every Student Fee,
No, No, don’t take it from me,
Just come to UC—
&
You’ll see.

No, don’t believe that Cincinnati is the
Queen of the West,
And that when it comes to college charm,
We do it the best.
Ignore our Alma mater when we claim
We are a fountain of youth;
And a towering
Rock of Truth;
And don’t believe that when challenges rain—
The Red & Black Will Reign.
No, No, don’t take it from me,
Just come to UC—
&
You’ll see.
Don’t believe that the Cincy experience—
Is worth
Every Student Fee,
No, No, don’t take it from me,
Just come to UC—
&
You’ll see.
And once you arrive you’ll instantly know…
Then
I’ll say

I told you so.
