Which is more lame? Aggie War Hymn or Texas Fight?

Which is more pathetic?  aTm with their War Hymn which disses 'Texas University' and is filled with gibberish or Tejas with their rebuttal song Texas Fight?  You be the judge after the jump.

Aggie War Hymn (circa 1920)

Hullabaloo, Caneck! Caneck!
Hullabaloo, Caneck! Caneck!

[ what in the world?  I . . . I . . . nevermind ]

All hail to dear old Texas A&M,
Rally around Maroon and White,
Good luck to the dear old Texas Aggies,
They are the boys who show the fight.
That good old Aggie spirit thrills us.
And makes us yell and yell and yell; --
So let's fight for dear old Texas A&M,
We're goin' to beat you all to --
Chig-gar-roo-gar-rem!
Chig-gar-roo-gar-rem!
Rough! Tough!
Real stuff! Texas A&M!

Good-bye to Texas university.
So long to the orange and white.
Good luck to the dear old Texas Aggies,
They are the boys who show
the real old fight.
The eyes of Texas are upon you.
That is the song they sing so well, (SOUNDS LIKE HELL!)
So, good-bye to Texas university,
We're goin' to beat you all to --
Chig-gar-roo-gar-rem!
Chig-gar-roo-gar-rem!
Rough! Tough!
Real stuff! Texas A&M!

Saw Varsity's Horns Off!
Saw Varsity's Horns Off!
Saw Varsity's Horns Off!
Short!


Varsity's Horns are Sawed Off!
Varsity's Horns are Sawed Off!
Varsity's Horns are Sawed Off!
Short!

Odd enough, right?  Let's go now to Texas Fight, which was written as a response to an Aggie song "Farmers Fight" which was also set to the tune of Taps


Texas Fight, Texas Fight,
And it's goodbye to A&M.
Texas Fight, Texas Fight,
And we'll put over one more win.
Texas Fight, Texas Fight,
For it's Texas that we love best.
Hail, Hail, The gang's all here,
And it's good-bye to all the rest!

(YELL)
Yea Orange! Yea White!
Yea Longhorns! Fight! Fight! Fight!
Texas Fight! Texas Fight,
Yea Texas Fight!
Texas Fight! Texas Fight,
Yea Texas Fight!

The Eyes of Texas are upon you,
All the livelong day.
The Eyes of Texas are upon you,
You cannot get away.
Texas Fight, Texas Fight,
For it's Texas that we love best.
Hail, Hail, The gang's all here,
And it good-bye to all the rest!

 

The title premise of my post was actually a joke . . . they are both pitiful as these schools play their never ending game of "I know you are, but what am I".  Never ending, it seemed until the Aggies shuffle off to obscurity in that other conference next year.  

 

You two kiss and say your sorry before finally saying good-bye for the last time, OK?
