The New Mexico State Fight Song: The Long History Of Drinking & College

Aggies, Oh Aggies

The hills send back the cry

We're here to do or die

Aggies, Oh Aggies

We'll win this game or know the reason why

And when we win this game

We'll buy a keg of booze

And drink it to the Aggies

Till we wobble in our shoes

A-G-G-I-E-S!

Aggies, Aggies, Go Aggies

Aggies, Oh Aggies

The hills send back the cry

We're here to do or die

Aggies, Oh Aggies

We'll win this game or know the reason why!

Their fight song is based on a popular turn of the century song titled "Oh Didn't He Ramble." The lyrics referencing drinking continue to be controversial, but as of yet, remain part of the song. With the recent uproar about Target marketing beer pong as essential college gear, maybe we have to first look back on our own traditions and see what needs some updating.
