The Lyrics

I happened to notice that the name of one of USC's most promising players - Barkley - is in the original song. The name Hickory was a nickname for one of America's most notable presidents - Andrew Jackson.
In the city of Burbank
Lived a guy named Hickory
And he played with the Bulldogs
Led them all to victory.

It was time to graduate
So he won a scholarship
And he made the Trojan team
He'll clinch the championship.

We all play on the greatest football team
Awesome football team, SC football team
We all play on the Trojan football team
Super football team, SC football team.

Our white horse is on the field
Tommy Trojan in red and gold
And the band begins to play -

(USC fight song)

USC has the greatest football team
All American champion football team
We all play on the SC football team
California's team, Trojan football team.

Interception! Matt Barkley holds the football!
And he's on his way!
80 yardline! 90 yardline!
He's in the end zone -
It's a touchdown!

We don't win at every game (We're to blame.)
We bust our butts ('Cause we got guts) to make the goal (And that's no bull!)
But we know ('Cause it's so!) one of our men (Say it again!)
Will be playing (That's no lying!) the Super bowl! (The Super Bowl!)

We all play on the Trojan football team
SC football team, awesome football team.....
(Repeat as many times as you like. In this song it doesn't matter.)

Nice job on a fun lilt. Must give 5s tho' the very mention of USC gives me hives. (Actually, I hardly give a rat's arse about college or any football, but a Facebook friend is a USC fanatic who has all season been flooding my news page with daily rants & raves per USC's weekly fate. I may yet have to hide her before season's end.)

Thanks, Stan. I don't take it that seriously, but I'm a Trojan fan. Anyone who never misses the Super Bowl will note that whatever team makes it there has at least one player who is a USC graduate. By the way, I meant 20 yardline and 10 yardline. It seems like 80 and 90 from that perspective.
