MSU Alma Mater (MSU Shadows)
(audio file au 1.4MB)

M.S.U. we love thy shadows
When twilight silence falls,
Flushing deep and softly paling
O'er ivy covered halls;
Beneath the pines we'll gather
To give our faith so true,
Sing our love for Alma Mater
And thy praises M.S.U.

When from these scenes we wander
And twilight shadows fade,
Our memory still will linger
Where light and shadows played;
In the evening oft we'll gather
And pledge our faith a new,
Sing our love for Alma Mater
And thy praises M.S.U.

MSU Fight Song
(audio file mp3 1.4MB)

On the banks of the Red Cedar,
Is a school that's known to all,
Its specialty is winning,
And those Spartans play good ball,
Spartan Teams are never beaten,
All thru the game they fight,
Fight for the only colors,
Green and White,

Go right through for M S U,
Watch the points keep growing,
Spartan teams are bound to win,
They're fighting with a vim, Rah! Rah! Rah!
See their team is weakening,
We're going to win the game,
Fight! Fight! Rah! Team Fight!
Victory for M S U,
Up with the colors,
Unfurl them on high!
Fight! Rah! Team Fight!
