About Be True to Your School

"Be True to Your School" is a song written by Brian Wilson and Mike Love for American rock band the Beach Boys, released as the third track of their album Little Deuce Coupe on October 2, 1963, and later as a single on October 28. The song features the melody of the University of Wisconsin's fight song, "On, Wisconsin!", although it is a tribute to Hawthorne High School, which the Wilson brothers attended.

When some loud braggart tries to put me down
And says his school is great
I tell him right away
"Now what's the matter buddy
Ain't you heard of my school
It's number one in the state"
(Hey hey take it away, get that ball and fight)

So be true to your school
(Rah rah rah rah sis boom bah)
Just like you would to your girl or guy
(Rah rah rah rah sis boom bah)
Be true to your school now
(Rah rah rah rah sis boom bah)
Let your colors fly
(Rah rah rah rah sis boom bah)
Be true to your school
(Rah rah rah rah rah)

I got a letterman's sweater
With a letter in front
I got for football and track
I'm proud to where it now
When I cruise around
The other parts of the town
I got my decal in back

So be true to your school
(Rah rah rah rah sis boom bah)
Just like you would to your girl or guy
(Rah rah rah rah sis boom bah)
Be true to your school now
(Rah rah rah rah sis boom bah)
Let your colors fly
(Rah rah rah rah sis boom bah)
Be true to your school
(Do it again, do it again, we like it, we like it)

(Rah rah rah rah rah)
Come Friday we'll be jacked up on the football game
And I'll be ready to fight
We're gonna smash 'em now
My girl will be working on her pom-poms now
And she'll be yelling tonight

So be true to your school
(Rah rah rah rah sis boom bah)
Just like you would to your girl or guy
(Rah rah rah rah sis boom bah)
Be true to your school now
(Rah rah rah rah sis boom bah)
Let your colors fly
(Rah rah rah rah sis boom bah)
Be true to your school
(Push 'em back, push 'em back, way back)

(Rah rah rah rah sis boom bah) (let your colors)
(Rah rah rah rah sis boom bah) (let your)
(Rah rah rah rah sis boom bah) (let)

The Beach Boys

The Beach Boys are an American rock band, formed in 1961 in Hawthorne, California. The group was initially composed of brothers Brian, Dennis and Carl Wilson, their cousin Mike Love, and friend Al Jardine.

The band's early music gained popularity across the United States for its close vocal harmonies and lyrics reflecting a Southern California youth culture of surfing, cars, and romance. By the mid 1960s, Brian Wilson's growing creative ambition and songwriting ability would dominate the group's musical direction. The primarily Wilson-composed Pet Sounds album and "Good Vibrations" single (both released in 1966) featured a complex, intricate and multi-layered sound that wa… more »
