Repertoire

The MTU Pep Band plays a large variety of music. With well over 100 songs to choose from, with the exception of the "Fight Song," it is rare that you will hear them play a piece more than once per game/weekend.

Audience participation is a must in many of the songs. You can clap your hands, get up and dance, or even sing along! The lyrics to many of our songs can be found below.

Fight Song (a.k.a. Fight Tech Fight!)

Fight Tech, fight Engineers.
For banners bright Engineers.
From Northern hills, we’ll sound our cry,
We’ll ring your praises to the sky!

Fight Tech, fight Engineers.
For right with might Engineers.
We’ll win the game in the glorious name
of the Michigan Michigan Michigan Engineers!

No Beer!

In Heaven there is no beer.
That’s why we drink it here.
And when we’re gone from here,
Our friends will be drinking all our beer.

In Heaven there is no snow.
That’s why we want to go.
And when it’s ten below,
Our friends will be freezing in the snow.

In Heaven there are no refs,
But here they’re blind and deaf.
And when we all have left,
Our friends will be BITCHIN’ AT THE REFS.

In Heaven there are no bones.
Who make those awful tones.
And when we all have flown
No one will be listenin’ to the bones.

In Heaven there is no sex.
That’s why we use “Brand X”.
And when we hit the decks,
Our friends will be having all our sex.

And many more…

Engineers

We are, we are, we are, we are, we are the engineers.
We can, we can, we can, we can drink all of forty beers.
Drink up, drink up, drink up, drink up, and come along with us,
for we don’t give a damn for any man who don’t give a damn for us.

My father was a miner on the upper Malamute.
My mother was a hostess in the house of ill repute.
And at the tender age of three, they threw me on my ear,
And there was nothing left for me to do but become an engineer.

(The Hard Verse)
We are, we are, we are, we are, we are, we are, we are,
We are, we are, we are, we are, we are, we are, we are,
We are, we are, we are, we are, we are, we are, we are,
We are, we are, we are.

(Special Hockey Verse)
Sieve, Sieve, Sieve, Sieve, Sieve,
Sieve, Sieve, Sieve, Sieve, Sieve,
Sieve, Sieve, Sieve, Sieve, Sieve,
Sieve, Sieve, Sieve, Sieve, Sieve

And many, many more…

The MTU Pep Band has many cheers of varying styles and flavors.

White Corvette

I’m dreaming of a white Corvette,
Just like the one in Motor Trend,
With a big fast engine,
and Goodyear Tires,
To do doughnuts in the snow.
I’m dreaming of a white Corvette,
With every Yugo that I pass,
May your drives be merry and fast,
And may all your Corvettes be white.

You are my Sunshine

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine.
You make me happy, when skies are grey.
You’ll never know, dear, how much I love you.
Please don’t take my sunshine away.

Ref Cheers

[Because, well, everyone loves ref's!!]

I’m Blind! I’m Deaf! I wanna be a Ref!

Zebra! Zebra! Short and Stout, find your head and PULL IT OUT!

I got a rope! I got a tree!
