"Wikitoria Hi."

page 22

"Wikitoria Hi."

Air: "Marching through Georgia."

Throw the ball about, my boys, we're on our game to-day,
On the fields of Miramar we'll show them how to play,
Punt and dribble like the College men of former day,
With our war-cry, "Wikitoria!"

For we're the boys who love the good old game,
For we're the boys to make a bid for fame,
We're ever keen, our football's clean,
We must let no one mar
The great traditions of Victoria.

We know no game is ever won until the whistle blows,
A motto we have all made clear to e'en the stoutest foes,
And though defeat may often greet the boys in emerald clothes,
Push and battle for Victoria.

Chorus : "For we're the boys," etc.

When hostile forwards siege our lines go down and stop the rush
The fending of the foemen do not let your tackles brush,
But find the line and turn them back and opposition crush,
Fighting for 'Varsity and Victoria.

Chorus : "For we're the boys," etc,


N.B.—There is a song of Victory!!
