    For "I," For "S"

    For "I", for "S", forever
    For Iowa State all the way,
    Let's go! To show them what the gang's all here for
    Go! To show them how the Cyclones cheer.

    For "I", for "S", forever
    For Iowa State do it right!
    It's time to climb up on the vict'ry wagon,
    Fight! Iowa State, Fight! Fight!

    For I, For S

    Re: For I, For S

    From Wikipedia:

    Wilson penned a number of very well-known songs, such as "Seventy-Six Trombones," "Gary Indiana," "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas," "May the Good Lord Bless and Keep You" and "Till There Was You," which was a hit for the Beatles in 1963. He also wrote the University of Iowa's fight song and Iowa State University's "For I for S Forever".

    It is. Hopefully For I for S is played way more than Merideth's other fight song this weekend.

    That just means we kicked a lot of field goals...again.

    I'm hoping for a touchdown or two this year.

    Ah, but "For I, For S" is also played after PATs!


    Green hills for thy throne, and for crown a golden melody/Ringing in the hearts of all who bring thee love and loyalty/Dear Alma Mater, make our spirits great
    True and valiant like the bells of I-O-WA STATE!

    And thank you Stumpy for this:

    No... that means we're scoring and Iowa isn't


    Per wikipedia
    He also wrote the University of Iowa's fight song and Iowa State University's "For I for S Forever".


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!
