It’s Confession Time on ColumbusBestBlog.com

Tomorrow the Buckeyes are in Madison, Wisconsin to play a game against the University of Wisconsin Badgers.

The confession, I am a Badger.  I graduated from the University of Wisconsin.   If you want to be a Badger sing these words to the tune of _______*

If you want to be a  Badger 

“If you want to be a Badger,
Just come along with me,
By the bright shining light,
By the light of the moon;
If you want to be a Badger,
Just come along with me,
By the bright shining light of the moon.

By the light of the moon,
By the light of the moon,
By the bright shining light,
By the light of the moon;
If you want to be a Badger,
Just come along with me,
By the bright shining light of the moon.”

Lyrics from Wisconsin Marching Band 

The Wisconsin Marching Band site say UW Professor Julian Olson wrote the words “and had the words set to music by Charles Mills, then Director of the School of Music*.” 

Really?

‘If you want to be a  Badger’ is not the tune of another song?   It is so ingrained in my brain…. I was thinking it was “Buffalo Girls” maybe because of the stuff about light of the moon in the lyrics.

Really?

There is an mp3 of the song on the Wisconsin Marching Band site.

Most people in central Ohio do not want to be Badgers  but I thought if…

This post is very similar to one I wrote years ago for my Columbus, Ohio real estate site, DiscoverColumbusOH.com for another Buckeye Badger meetup. I forget.  I think the Buckeye’s won that year.

 I am a Badger Coo Coo Catchoo

“Coo Coo Catchoo?”  No that is not in the song  ‘If you want to be a  Badger.’   Coo Coo Catchoo is  from the Beatles but perhaps it the spelling is Koo Koo Katchoo?  You know the song…

 ” I am the something or other,  I am the Walrus Koo Koo Katchoo? “


I am ________

What is the word?

The image is a Real Living ecard.  Real Living is company that sprang from the loins of HER Realtors a Columbus, Ohio real estate company.  I am real estate agent with HER Realtors which was Real Living HER for awhile Coo Coo Catchoo.   I have no Badger images to use. I hope it is not sacrilegious to Buckeye fans for me to use the image.

Buffalo girls won’t you come out tonight, won’t you come out tonight…
