Fight Song

Ohio University’s fight song, entitled “Stand Up and Cheer,” has been sung as an athletic song since the early 1900s. The song’s words and theme were adapted from a previous melody, written by Paul P. McNeely in 1909.

Stand Up and Cheer

Stand up and cheer 
Cheer loud and long for old OHIO 
For today we raise 
The Green and White above the rest 

Our team is fighting, 
And we are bound to win the fray 
We’ve got the team, 
We’ve got the steam, 
For this is old OHIO’s day! 
    
Rah! Rah! Rah!
