Back in my College Republican days, we had space at the bottom of a page of our (only) newsletter. We had room for three verses of the song - the first, second and ninth.

All throughout the city, natives "spurn the Northern scum" who invade our stadium to root for their teams. Like next weekend when the "Damn Yankees" come visiting.
