Where does this cheer (fight song?) come from?

Asked by LostInParadise (24861points) September 20th, 2010

I just heard Garrison Keilor do a cheer to Minnesota using this tune and I thought it might be associated with some college, but a Google search turned up empty. The version I heard goes like this:

_ _ _ _, hats off to thee
To our colors true we will always be
Firm and strong, united are we.
Rah rah sis boom bah
Hitch your wagon to a star
Onward to victory!

Somehow I associate this with my high school, but I am certain that even if they said it there, that is surely not where it originated.

Honor to our college, Minnesota U!
Loyal to thy standards, We’ll ever be untrue.
Underneath thy pennant pulses beat with pride, and
Victory e’er shall be our aim o’er the nation wide!
(Yell)
Refrain
Minnesota, hats off to thee,
To thy colors true we shall ever be…
Firm and strong, united are we.
Rah, rah, rah, for Ski-U-Mah,
Rah, rah, rah, rah, rah, rah, rah,
Rah for the U of M.

Garrison Keilor was right on—I should have STARTED there.
