*Northern Arizona University*

The difference between us isn’t
Race, average body weight, socioeconomics, gender,
or even
A tanned population that’s hot…
Let me break it to you gently:

The difference is we’re Lumberjacks and you’re not.

There may not be a school with this girl ratio,
But there could,
And our guys are not the only guys alive getting wood,
It’s about who we are, though, not what we got:

The difference is we’re Lumberjacks and you’re not.

We’re not the only school with great dining and housing,
Or the only Arizona school with nightlife arousing,
You think you got it now? Give it a shot!
Still wrong.
The difference is we’re Lumberjacks and you’re not.

We’re not the only school with a Greek Week,
Or the only school with friendly strangers who speak,
But a better school? Humph, I think not…

We’re in the greatest school and you’re not.

Because we are the only school with Gabapalooza,
When you step on the lawn, no guard will refuse ya,
And we are the only school that has the Gold Axe,
The highest achievement earned by the Lumberjacks.
And who else has Taylor House—where the haunted rise?
Or homecomings starting with Tequila Sunrise?
Who else rings the New Year with the Pine Drop?
And lives every minute like their hearts about to stop?
A freshman or alum, there’s no difference, you forgot?

We are all Lumberjacks and you’re not.
