The Lyrics

As a college football fan north of the Mason-Dixon line, my favorite teams are Ohio State and Notre Dame. I generally pull for any Northern team to win a championship (even if that team has to be OSU's hated rivals Michigan), as most of the national titles in the two-poll era have been won by teams in the South. OSU, the winner of the first College Football Playoff in 2014, is the only non-Southern team to do so, which was also officially true of the BCS era. As of this parody's publication, the North has never placed more than one team in the CFP in any given year, nor has a Northern team advanced to the CFP in consecutive years.
Hey brother, ready for another
College football season
In the Northern states, lots of great teams
Don't need any rhyme or no reason
Got that right

There's the Notre Dame Irish, OSU Buckeyes
The Penn State Nittany Lions
Syracuse, Pitt, Boston College, Purdue
You know I'm not lyin'

Whatever your team is, let's hear it for the North
It is where the sport began
Take a lead into the fourth

(We say)
We are damn Yankees
Proud to be damn Yankees
(How we doin')

Let's go Nebraska Cornhuskers, Iowa Hawkeyes
Wisconsin, Minnesota Gophers
M-Go-Blue, MSU Spartans too
Have one of them in first

It's a huge tradition, it's called Northern pride
We all cheer for Northern football teams
You know it's gonna be a fun ride

(We say)
We are damn Yankees
Proud to be damn Yankees
We are damn Yankees

Indiana Hoosiers and Illinois Illini
Over in Columbus it is called "dotting the I"
Missouri, Iowa State and plenty more teams can you see
Let's all hope that the South falls once again
Smile when you say, "Damn Yankees"

We are damn Yankees
Proud to be damn Yankees
We are damn Yankees
Proud to be damn Yankees
Damn Yankees, damn Yankees
