And so comes the fall crisp and cool all colors and leaves

it comes to stadiums and fields in victory and loss

fans who wear their hearts on their sleeves

in the crisp autumn air the football they toss

Fields of green and sometimes blue or red

seats awash with the colors of colleges near and far

hoping it’s your team that comes out ahead

feeling as if your college is the day’s star

Names that echo against the bright fall sky

Dawgs, Gators, Sooners, Huskers, Tide

soaring on every play feeling that TD high

each fan bursting with team pride

The boys of fall are back on the field time now to play

cheer for your team put on the colors show your team pride

a brand new season starts with just this one day

get ready for the ride
