I love to fence, I love to fight.
I think about it day and night.
I’m fencing everywhere I go,
So just sit back and watch the show.
I love my swords and they love me.We’re such a happy family.
Sabre, foil, and épée, too -
I love them all, now how about you?
I always practice fencing drills,So I can improve my skills.
Do calisthenics all day long,
So my arms and legs stay strong.
When I walk out the crowd will cheer.My fifteen-point salute strikes fear.
I look my opponent in the eye,
And boldly say, “Prepare to die!”
I hear it’s generally understoodThat I’m a modern Robin Hood.
I know every line from The Princess Bride.
Zorro is my cousin on my father’s side.
I love it on the fencing team.I’m living out a lifelong dream.
As the musketeers do call,
“It’s all for one and one for all.”
Sound off. 1-2.Sound off. 3-4.
UCM! UCM! UCM! Allez!
This was a request of Dusty Brooks, Dictator-for-life of the UCM Fencing Club. It is based on standard military cadences. The words were written to reflect the spirit of humor that Dusty and I as well as many of the other members of the fencing club shared when we fenced 2001-2005.
