Songs

Fight song

Lincoln University doesn't have a name for their fight song, but it is sung to the tune of The Washington And Lee Swing.[5]

Alma mater

Sung to the tune of "Ach wie ist's möglich dann", an old German folk song published in 1827 and variously credited to Georg Heinrich or Friedrich Silcher Kuchen, Lincoln's fight song is called Lincoln, O, Lincoln. (The West Point and Wake Forest alma maters also use the same tune.)[5]
