Crusaders all, now hear our call
And to the world proclaim
We're Kennedy, and let men see
We're proud of our great name;
No matter what the odds are or
How great the foe may be
With might and right we'll arm ourselves
And fight to victory.
We're Kennedy, we're tried and true
We hold our heads up high!
So give a cheer for the gold and blue
As we go marching by!
Words by Patrick J. Butler, 1965. Music adapted from John F. Kennedy's favorite march "The Boys from Wexford," which was used as the theme in the television production of "Profiles in Courage."
