Your Unofficial Stanford Orange Bowl Song: "Miami"

New, 3 comments

I'll see your student petition for President Hennessy to excuse absences for Orange Bowl travelers and raise you Stanford football-themed lyrics to Will Smith's "Miami." You can blame commenter jterry94 for putting that awful(ly) catchy song in my head yesterday. And yes, I'll start previewing the actual game at some point. Promise.

Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah
Miami, uh, uh
South Beach, bringin the heat, uh
Haha, can y'all feel that?
Can y'all feel that?
Jig it out, uh.

Cardinal on its way to the Orange Bowl
In Miami, Stepfan Taylor’s gonna hit that hole
Owen Marecic is perfect
, watch him play, both ways
We work
, all day, OK
Tunnel Workers clearing space, watch the rushing yards grow
Andrew Luck hitting fools and completing every throw,
Defense allows nil, Shayne Skov in your grill
Leaving losers wondering, ‘What’s your deal?’
Eleven wins, all teams and places
Busting faces
Against every different foe, scoring points, making stops, getting sacks
Oh, right, and we've got the Axe
Led in Eugene but then the Ducks got going
We'll bury the Hokies, make 'em feel like it's snowing
This is a team that deserves to be playing
In the Rose Bowl, oh well, let’s stop the complaining

Party in the city where the beat is on
One more win for Andrew Luck before he’s gone*
Welcome to Miami (que es su numero McGillicuddy?)
Moving down the field where the beat is on
Zychlinski on the sideline hiding a yawn,
We're going to Miami
Welcome to Miami

Yo I heard the Hokies ain't nothin’ to mess with
But this is the revenge of the nerds, yeah you heard
Fangio’s scheme, a 3-4 dream
Richard Sherman pick six (We love this Stanford team!)
Can't stop Chase Thomas 'cause he'll find a way through
Bad news Tech, we're better than JMU
Hottest squad in the country and a coach who can teach,
1 win in ’06 and now on to South Beach,
One eighty degrees
Heading southeast, with character and cruelty
Scream it (ay, go Trees!)
Every time we come to town, people want to see
If we're for real, or just a Pac-10 tease
So, by now you know
And if not, we'll gladly show
Pound for pound and blow for blow
Minus Toby, could you envision this?
Stanford Cardinal, Orange Bowl, yeah this is almost bliss

Party in the city where the beat is on
One more win for Andrew Luck before he’s gone
Welcome to Miami (que es su numero McGillicuddy?)
Moving down the field where the beat is on
Zychlinski on the sideline hiding a yawn,
We're going to Miami
Welcome to Miami

UPDATE: *Or maybe not! Seems almost too good to be true.
