Fight Song (Video & Lyrics):

You’ve got to fight, fight, fight, for FSU!
You’ve got to scalp ’em Seminoles!
You’ve got to win, win, win, win, win this game,
and roll on down and make those goals!

For FSU is on the warpath now,
And at the battle’s end she’s great!
So fight, fight, fight, fight to victory!,
Our Seminoles from Florida State!

(Say and YELL)
Florida State, Florida State, Florida State!

(Repeat Chorus)
