The Lyrics

Atherton Street in State College is Business US 322, and leads you to the Penn State main campus in what some call Happy Valley.
See my education
Be nothing but a blur
Headed for Penn State
I just could endure
Never look back, that's what I swore
I'll take my Cougar to Penn State
In State College

Take Atherton Street to Happy Valley
Into downtown State College
Take Atherton Street to Penn State
On Atherton Street in Happy Valley
You can hear 'em talk about the Nittany Lions
Take Atherton Street to Penn State

Follow Interstate eighty
Like the old Warren Beatty
You'll eventually get there
And you'll have some fun
Never look back, this is my plan
Drive my Cougar to Penn State
In State College

Take Atherton Street to Happy Valley
Into downtown State College
Take Atherton Street to Penn State
On Atherton Street in Happy Valley
You can hear 'em talk about the Nittany Lions
Take Atherton Street to Penn State

Leave my cares behind
Take my own sweet time
Penn State's on my mind

Take Atherton Street to Happy Valley
Into downtown State College
Take Atherton Street to Penn State
On Atherton Street in Happy Valley
You can hear 'em talk about the Nittany Lions
Take Atherton Street to Penn State

WE ARE...PENN STATE!
