How long has it been?

Who's asking: Jack the Bulldog, Washington, DC

Yes, it's been 23 years since Georgetown's men's basketball team won the NCAA tournament. And no, Jack the Bulldog doesn't actually talk.

But any Georgetown fan knows that this question has only one answer, and that's the Georgetown Fight Song:

It's been so long since last we met,
Lie down forever, lie down;
Or have you any money to bet,
Lie down forever, lie down.

There goes old... Georgetown,
Straight for a... rebound,
See how they... gain ground,
Lie down forever, lie down,
Lie down forever, lie down.

Rah! Rah! Rah!
Hurrah for Georgetown,
Cheer for victory today.
'Ere the sun has sunk to rest,
In the cradle of the West,
In the clouds will proudly float
The Blue and Gray.

We've heard those loyal fellows up at Yale
Brag and boast about their Boola-Boola.
We've heard the Navy yell,
We've listened to Cornell;
We've heard the sons of Harvard tell
How Crimson lines could hold them.
Choo Choo, Rah Rah, dear old Holy Cross;
The proud old Princeton tiger
Is never at a loss.
But the yell of all the yells,
The yell that wins the day,
For the dear old Blue and Gray.

I have not been able to find an MP3 of this, though I have it on good authority that one exists. If anyone has it, feel free to post it in the comment section.

I can't get it to work for me, but it might be a Windows Media Player problem.
