"KMI VICTORY MARCH"
Words and music by Captain A.D. Stutzenberger

"From the KMI BLUE BOOK"

Come let us raise a song above the cheering throng,
For our dear old K.M.I.
Let us get in step and have the proper pep,
And cheer her on to victory,
Our boys have ever been out to play the game and win
And we'll play it on the square,
Our spirit true will always bring her through,
So let's sing her praises fair.

Chorus:
We've got a grand old school,

The best on earth today,
And we'll bear her banners high!
When we yell, we yell -- like seven kinds of Hell --

(When we yell, we yell like -- well, we cannot tell --)alternate version

We'll raise her name and fame up to the sky.

We'll shout for her  today and make our pledges true,
To our dear old school we'll cry!
For she's 'way down yonder where the bluegrass grows -- 
So here's to K. M. I. ! --
