Crimson and Blue

By: Gus Brandmeyer

There is crimson and blue on the floors,
Where the players shoot, shoot, shoot, and score,
In the stands the crowd cheers,
For all of Lawrence to hear,
Basketball is in our DNA,
Ever since James Nai,

Too many alumnus to think of,
From Phog Allen, to Paul Rudd,
A torrent of crimson and blue fill the air,
Allen Fieldhouse is always a lot louder,
They are so loud, it makes the games unfair,

The Basketball goes swoosh,
When the player takes the shot,
James Naismith was an inventor,
Paul Pierce was a legend,
And this school is like their home,
We had Mario who could shoot three.
And we had Wilt who was seven foot three,
Some of our players are tall,
And some can shoot the ball,
We always get the job done,
And along the way we have some fun,

Big 12 champs eleven times in a row,
That is why every team considers us foe,
National champs five times,
Big 12 champs too many times,
And so many legends it is unbelievable

Overall KU is great school,
We represent the colors crimson and blue,
So as is said by all the fans,
Rock chalk Jayhawk,
Go KU.
