Cal Poly School Songs

All Hail Green and Gold

Written by H.P. Davidson, “All Hail Green and Gold” is Cal Poly’s Alma Mater.

All Hail, Green and Gold,
May your praises e’er be told
Of Friendship, and of courage
And stalwart sons of old!
All Hail, Green and Gold,
In your name we shall prevail,
So to California Polytechnic,
Hail! Hail! Hail!


Ride High You Mustangs

Written by H.P. Davidson, “Ride High You Mustangs” is Cal Poly’s official fight song.

Ride High, You Mustangs!
Kick the frost out, burn the breeze
Ride High, You Mustangs!
Those bow-wows we'll knock to their knees
Hi! Ki! Yi!

Ride High, You Mustangs!
Chin the moon and do it right
Ride High and cut a rusty
Fight! Fight! Fight!

Yea Poly

“Yea Poly” became an official Cal Poly’s school song in 2009. The music was written by H.P. Davidson with lyrics by Joshua Parker (CSC 2009).

On Pacific shores, ‘neath Bishop Peak
Along the serene San Luis Creek
Lies our alma mater, grand as can be!

Many a foe will stalk her ground
But we, mighty Mustangs, won’t be found
But valiantly marching to victory!
Strike up the band for all to hear!
For our alma mater, sing and cheer!
Ride high and she’ll never fail!
Banners of green and gold will raise
And so will the echoes of her praise
For Cal Poly will prevail!

YEA POLY!
