Original Music Sample – VERSE 1

 

VERSE 1

 

They're playin',

 

a game,

 

In Arizona.

 

With a style,

 

And grace,

 

Op-po-nents,

 

Ag-o-nize.

 

And they're livin',

 

With a passion,

 

A scant few know.

 

That a Trident held,

 

By old Sparky,

 

Signifies.

 

 

Original Music Sample – Chorus 1

 

CHORUS

 

And now ya know,

 

Which way to go,

 

When ya,

 

Choose schools.

 

Cause in Tempe,

 

Student out-come,

 

Amplifies.

 

Un-derstand,

 

When out-side of,

 

Arizona.

And you'll,

 

Be on the,

 

Sun Devil side.

 

 

Original Music Sample – VERSE 2

VERSE 2

 

I dated

 

A girl

 

Who lived in Tuc-son.

 

Yeah, I drove down,

 

Cause her pasta,

 

Was un-real.

 

When word got to the Pres',

 

He took my Tri-dent.

 

Swore off I-tal-ian.

 

Got back my Tri-dent.

 

On ap-peal.

BRIDGE - optional, probably spoken verse

 

In high school they advised me,

 

That an East Coast university,

 

Inflates my success odds three-fold.

 

Compared to some, I'd pay more in one year.

 

Than four might cost, if staying here.

 

Learning under the best, while able to cheer,

 

Teams that proudly rock maroon and gold.

And now ya know,

When ya,

Cause in Tempe,

 

Talk of dope-ness,             [Note: From the Black Eyed Peas song]

 

Resonates.

 

Booyah!     [From the supporting cast]

You're out-side of,

 

Arizona.

And you'll,

 

Trans-fer to the,

 

Sun Devil State.

And now ya know,

Cause a dia-mond,

 

And coal lump are,

From the state of,

 

Arizona,

 

Rock on.

 

But then,

 

They say that a,

 

Sun Devil's dope.

 

 

The End
