The fight song is the only song my 2 day old daughter knows. Or, atleast the only one I have sang to her.
Good Man!! I use to work at a physicians office where we were once trying to hold down a very young child for stitches. The child was very scared and screaming her head off. Her dad was right by her side and was trying his best to calm her. He started to sing the Iowa fight song and I looked at him and said "Please don't make it worse." He had a good sense of humor and laughed.
Not that it has ever come in handy in my life, but i know the words to the Iowa state and Iowa fight songs, as well as about a dozen other schools across college football. I could voice the music (without the words) to about 50 as well.
The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.
At freshman orientation or something like that we had to sing it. We were given shirts with the words on the back so you just read it off the person in front of you. We did it like 5 times and have known it since then.
