The March Madness Song

Posted by admin on March 14, 2022 Audio | Blog | Original Songs | Tags: , , , , , , | No comments

It’s my annual challenge of attempting to fit 68 college basketball teams, the entire number of those schools invited, including “The First Four”, into one :45 song. Yes, it can be quite difficult to find something to rhyme with the Catamounts.

However, college basketball is riddled with similar names. There are always a few Bulldogs and Wildcats involved in the tournament, making my task a little easier.

Feel free to sing or count along. Here are the lyrics:

Bobcats, Badgers, Boilermakers, Bruins and Blazers,
Blue Devils, Crimson Tide, Scarlet Knights, Red Raiders,
Catamounts, Cougars, Wolverines and Panthers,
Aztecs, Trojans, Tar Heels, Pirates and Ramblers,

Dons, Friars, Gales, Titans, Islanders
Razorbacks, Racers, Rams, Zips, Lancers
Tigers, Tigers, Tigers, Tigers, and some Bears.
With the Spartans twice, we’re only halfway there.

Hurricanes, Huskies, Hokies, Hawkeyes, Hoosiers and Horned Frogs,
Four Wildcats, Two Raiders, and three Bulldogs,
Fighting Illini, Fighting Irish and Cyclones,

Jackrabbits, Longhorns, Aggies, Cowboys and Broncos,
Golden Eagles, Gamecocks, Peacocks, Mocs,
Blue Jays, Blue Hens and Jayhawks,
Spiders, Buckeyes, Volunteers, we’re all finished
Write ’em down, fill out them brackets.
It’s March Madness!

After two rounds of competition, I am happy to present a short and sweet “Sweet Sixteen” version.
