NOTRE DAME SONGS YOU NEED TO KNOW:
(Click on Title for music)

Notre Dame Victory March

 

Cheer! Cheer for old Notre Dame. 

Wake up the echoes cheering her name.

Send the volley cheer on high,

Shake down the thunder from the sky.

What tho’ the odds be great or small,

Old Notre Dame will win over all.

While her loyal Sons are marching

 onward to victory.

 

Notre Dame, Our Mother (Alma Mater)

 

Notre Dame, our Mother,

Tender, strong and true

Proudly in the heavens

Gleams the Gold and Blue.

Glory’s mantle cloaks thee,

Golden is thy fame

And our hearts forever

Praise thee, Notre Dame:

And our hearts forever

Love thee, Notre Dame.
