FIGHT SONG (Sung to the tune of "Anchors Aweigh")

"Go colors Black and Gold... fight strong and bold!
We have a winning team that proves that we will never fold!
All through the years we fight, on to victory (fight... fight... fight!).
Until we win this game, the kids will yell 'hooray' for Waverly! (fight!)"
