Fight 'Em (music)
Down from the North
Comes the Purple and Gold
To skin our Golden Bear
Washington's 'leven will never hold
The charge of our mighty Bear.
Our team on the field
Has a line of steel
And every man is game;
When the strength
of the Blue and Gold they feel,
Those Northmen will be tame.
So fight, fight, fight, fight
Fight, fight, fight, fight,
Fight! For the Blue and the Gold;
And the team on the field
Will not bend brake or yield
And fight like Big "C" teams of old.
And every time they buck the line,
We're sure our team will hold.
For victory means fame (For victory's in sight)
For California's name, (For California's might)
So fight, fight, high 'em California!
Fight ‘Em (Down From the North)
Written in 1915 by I. B. Kornblum and H. E. Kowalski
“Fight ‘Em” was written by I. B. Kornblum with lyrics by H. E. Kowalski for the 1915 Big Game. The only difference that year was that Big Game was played against the University of Washington instead of Stanford because Stanford had chosen to return to competitive play in rugby. Known then as “Down From the North,” “Fight ‘Em” was an immediate hit with the student body. In 1919, football relations were reestablished with Stanford, so “Fight ‘Em” was only played for rallies and games with Washington. Though rarely played anymore, the Cal Band has pulled out “Fight ‘Em” for recent contests with the Washington Huskies, but unfortunately, the student body no longer recognizes the significance of the song.
