MR. TWO BITS CHEER
Said before the start of each home football game:
All for the Gators, stand up and holler!
(Three large arm circles with your right arm ending by reaching your arm straight up in the air to end.)
Former Vice President for Student Affairs, Gen. David Kratzer as
Mr. Two Bits in November 2018.
UF ALMA MATER
Composed by Milton L. Yeats, the alma mater is performed at commencements and after home football wins with the whole team, coaching staff, fans and the band.
Florida, our Alma Mater,
thy glorious name we praise.
All thy loyal sons and daughters,
a joyous song shall raise.
Where palm and pine are blowing,
where southern seas are flowing,
Shine forth thy noble gothic walls,
thy lovely vine clad halls.
Neath the orange and blue victorious, (throw right arm in the air)
our love shall never fail.
There’s no other name so glorious, (throw right arm in the air)
all hail, Florida, hail!
WE ARE THE BOYS
One of the longest running and most beloved Gator traditions happens after the third quarter of every home game. Gator Fans stand up, throw their arms around their neighbors’ shoulders and sing “We are the Boys” while swaying left to right.
We are the boys from old Florida
Where the girls are the fairest,
The boys are the squarest
Of any old state down our way (shout “hey”)
We are all strong for old Florida
Down where the old Gators play (shout “Go Gators” and throw right arm in the air)
In all kinds of weather
We’ll all stick together
(hold sway for 3 count)
