CMU Fight Song
Written by 'Howdy' Loomis (class of '35)
FIGHT, Central down the field, FIGHT for victory, FIGHT, fellows never yield; We're with you, oh varsity.
Onward with banners bold, to our colors we'll be true, FIGHT for Maroon and Gold, Down the field for C. M. U.
Varsity! Rah! Rah! Victory! Rah! Rah!
CHIPPEWA, we're proud of that nickname.
Hear our song loud and strong,
CENTRAL is going to win this game!
Come on and ... (Repeat thru "C. M. U.")
