Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Fight! Blue Devils, Fight!" is one of the two official fight songs of Duke University, along with "Blue and White."

The lyrics were written by Douglas Ballin, and the music was composed by J.F. Hewitt.[1]

Notes

  • Typically, only the first verse is sung. Often, "Blue and White" is played after the breakstrain, or occasionally, "Dixieland Strut."
  • The word "touchdown" in the first verse is changed to "basket" or "slam dunk" for basketball games.
  • "Carolina" in the first verse refers to Duke's traditional rival, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
  • Duke students often modify the lyrics slightly when they sing the song at sporting events: the fifth through seventh lines are replaced by, "Go Devils! We're gonna win tonight, Carolina, go to hell! Eat shit!"
