Chicago Bears Fight Song: Bear Down, Chicago Bears
Bear Down, Chicago Bears, make every play clear the way to victory;
Bear Down, Chicago Bears, put up a fight with a might so fearlessly.
We’ll never forget the way you thrilled the nation with your T-formation.
Bear Down, Chicago Bears and let them know why you’re wearing the crown.
You’re the pride and joy of Illinois, Chicago Bears, Bear Down.
Check out www.youtube.com for fans singing the fight song. Two that are unique are Lyric Opera’s Bryan Griffin (you can’t miss him, he is wearing the costume of his current role in Die Fledermaus and has fuzzy red hair with a matching beard) and the one featuring a picture of Papa Halas.
In the extended version of the song, players mentioned in the break are: Halas, Driscoll, Turner, George, Atkins, Sayers, Butkus and Payton. They are all in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Some of you may remember Vlasta’s Chicago Bears Polka. It can be downloaded at www.letspolka.com
