  • Six finalists for revised "I'm a Jayhawk" selected

    Available on the alumni facebook page.

    Here are the six entries selected as finalists.

    #1

    Talk about the Sooners, and the Cowboys and the Bears
    Talk about the Tiger and his tail,
    Talk about the Wildcats, and those ole’ Cyclone boys,
    But I’m a bird to make ‘em weep and wail

    Chorus:
    ‘Cause I’m a Jay, Jay, Jay, Jay, Jayhawk,
    Up at Lawrence on the Kaw—
    ‘Cause I’m a Jay, Jay, Jay, Jay, Jayhawk,
    With a sis-boom, hip hoorah,
    Got a bill that’s big enough to twist a Tiger’s tail,
    Rope some ‘Horns and listen to the Red Raiders wail—
    ‘Cause I’m a Jay, Jay, Jay, Jay, Jayhawk,
    Riding on a Kansas gale.

    Talk about the Sooners, the Cowboys and the Bears,
    Talk about the Tiger and his tail,
    Talk about the Longhorns, those good ol' Texas boys,
    But I'm the bird to make 'em weep and wail.'

    Chorus:
    Cause I'm a Jay, Jay, Jay, Jay, Jayhawk,
    Up at Lawrence on the Kaw
    'Cause I'm a Jay, Jay, Jay, Jay, Jayhawk,
    With a sis-boom, hip hoorah.
    Got a bill that's big enough to twist the Tiger's tail
    Crush a bear and listen to the Wildcats wail
    'Cause I'm a Jay, Jay, Jay, Jay, Jayhawk,
    Riding on a Kansas gale.

    Will just have to change it in 5 years anyway, so why waste the time.
