Songs to thee Wisconsin, ever let us sing,
Praise to alma mater, ever let us bring.
Queen of all the west, college we love best,
Queen of all the west, college we love best.

May thou e’er inspire, heav’nly wisdom’s fire,
May thou e’er inspire, heav’nly wisdom’s fire.

May we ever cherish memories of thee,
See the dawn of greater, grander thigs to be.
Queen of all the west, college we love best,
