This was the cheer at Quad Fest for Alspaugh Term II '05. One MaggieFaith, in a rebellious moment of fedupwithteamspiritness shouted ALSPAUGH ALSPAUGH WE'RE FLAMING QUEENS!!! This kind of stuck- well, with those of us who "don't appriciate the awesomeness that is quadfest."

The actual lyrics for the cheer

(To the tune of My Country 'Tis of Thee)

God save our gracious Green,
Long live our noble Green,
God save the Green.
Send us victorious,
Happy and glorius,
Long to reign over us:
God save the Green.

O Lord our God, arise,
Scatter our enemies,
And make them fall;
Confound those Pegramites,
Revoke the fourth year rights;
Show them our Green might:
God save us all.

Thy choicest gifts in store
On us be pleased to pour,
Long may we reign.
May we defend our laws
And ever give us cause
To sing with heart and voice,
God save the Green.

Not in this dorm alone,
But be God's mercies known,
From quad to quad!
Lord make the TiPsters see,
That Alspaugh winners be,
And form our family,
The campus over.

From every latent foe,
From the assassins blow,
God save the Green!
O'er us thine arm extend,
For Alspaugh's sake defend,
Our TiPsters, staff and friend,
God save the Green!
