10. Bradley (Charge On!)

Charge on, Charge on Bradley,
March right down the field,

Fight on, fight on Bradley,
And fight for varsity!

7. Drake (The “D” Song)

Here’s to the one who wears the “D,”
Makes a good fight for varsity,
Here’s to those who’ve fought and won,

Ready to battle like days of old,
Fights like a Bulldog for victory,
Oh, here’s to the one who wears the “D.”
