Spirit Songs

  • Fight Song

    Listen (Instrumental) 


    Fight, Fight, Fight for NAU,
    Take the ball and follow through,
    Lead the Blue and Gold to fame,
    As we win another game.
    Cheer, Cheer, Cheer for NAU,
    We want a victory,
    So fight, fight, fight,
    With all your might,
    For we want a victory tonight.

  • Timber



    Timber, Timber,
    Everybody's calling for Timber,
    Swing your ax
    You Lumberjacks
    Timber's got to go down the river today.
    Timber, Timber,
    Everybody's waiting on Timber
    Swing your ax
    You Lumberjacks
    Timber's got to go down the river today.
    Ax man fell that tree,
    Cut out a ship for to sail the sea,
    Cut out a cabin for me and mine,
    Out of the whispering pine.
    Timber, Timber,
    Soon we'll have a cradle of timber,
    Swing your ax
    You Lumberjacks
    Timber's got to go down the river today.

  • Alma Mater



    Hail Alma Mater,
    Hail NAU
    Thy name forever
    A guiding light so true
    Strong as the pine trees,
    Our love will never fail,
    To Thee, Alma Mater,
    Hail! Hail! Hail!
