    Don't know the words...

    Does there exists a youtube of the student section singing along with "Go Cyclones Go!" aka the 'Don't know the words' song? I was wanting to show it to someone and could not find it. Thanks for the help.

    I never knew the words, let alone the song title.

    There are no words, except "Go!"

    The part where everyone sings "Don't know the words, don't know the words, don't know the words to this stupid ---- song" has no words. Then, there's a part where the band plays a long note, after that you say "Go!" and keep doing it after each of the notes. After the last long note, then you say "Go! Go! Go!" That's it. That's the words, as Bill Nye would say "Now you know!"

    I always though the end was, "and I don't care"

    Re: Don't know the words...

    Yeah, if I remember right recently they've started trying to have people say "I don't care" so that kids aren't hearing the entire student section swearing. Probably not a bad idea, for our school's reputation and all that. There has been a lot of controversy over if this song should even be played, and they don't ban people from singing "I don't care."

    Yeah b/c during the course of a football game the song is going to be the only time a kid hears the f word. If the Lil Clone zone is anywhere near the student section, well thats a mistake in itself. "Mommy why does the student section smell like mouth wash?"

    Re: Don't know the words...

    Silly question, but is this song an ISU original? Listening to it without yelling, I realize it's actually a good song with lots of gametime flare.

    Our words are: "Don't know the words, Don't know the words, Don't know the words so I'll just yell!"

    but I like...and I don't care!

    Re: Don't know the words...

    A few things.

    1. The actual song title is Go Cyclones Go! working in the ISU music department while I was a student I learned the actual title of the song.

    2. I know the words (or don't, however you want to phrase that) and require no assistance on that front.

    3. Sucks that they are trying to stop people from doing that.

    4. Yes the song after the fight song is the correct song however I was looking for a video with the students actually singing along at a football game. This way the person I am trying to explain this too doesn't look at me silly when I sing it to them by myself.

    They are trying to stop people from singing it because it is extremely disrespectful to the band and the university.

    Re: Don't know the words...

    speaking of putting the clone zone next to the student section, I think we're really playing with fire by putting the recruits next to the student section. I know when I was a student, multiple times parents and recruits looked at individuals in the student section (and the section as a whole) with ****** off looks and glares that could only be interpreted as, "I can't wait to get out of here". On one hand you have the riled up students showing recruits and familys how passionate our fans are, and on the other hand you have drunken idiot students showing recruits and parents how drunk and moronic students get at ISU.

    It's too bad that the rest of the stadium doesn't get as jacked up as the students otherwise I'm sure we'd move the recruits somewhere else.
