"The Fighting Gamecocks Lead the Way"
Hey, Let's give a cheer, Carolina is here,
The Fighting Gamecocks lead the way.
Who gives a care, If the going gets tough,
And when it is rough, that's when the 'Cocks get going.
Hail to our colors of garnet and Black,

So, Go Gamecocks Go - FIGHT!
Drive for the goal - FIGHT!

So, let's give a cheer, Carolina is here.
The Fighting Gamecocks All The Way!
