Hey girls, I hope somebody actually reads this message http://www.greekchat.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif I was just wondering if any of ya'll know any cute & catchy theta chants to do at things like derby days & other sorority competitions. We always do the same one over and over and over and personally I am ready for a new one. Ours goes "Kappa Kappa, Alpha Alpha, Theta Theta Theta! We're the best, hell yes, Kappa Alpha Theta!" So not only is it repetitive, but I guess a little crude too. Anyway, if your chapter has anything better to offer (which shouldn't be too hard http://www.greekchat.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif), please let me know!

We actually have a ton of cute, Greek Week easy to do songs, but I can't remember them right now! We have an awesome Song Chair who is a Music major that I could give you the e-mail of if you contact me. The one I can remember is a lot like yours:
K-A-PP-A A-L-PH-A T-H-ET-A, Kappa, Kappa, Kappa Alpha Theta, and we repeat...boring I know...and then there's a go hot Theta one, I can't remember

Hey! :) Eventhough i'm a new Theta member at Eastern Kentucky University, and i dont knwo a lot of our chants and songs yet, there is one that i learned during rush time that stood out . "DAMN! it's hot in here! It must be the Theta's in the atmosphere. I say DAMN! it's hot in here it must be the theta's in teh atmosphere!" This cheer always made me smile and pumped me up while waiting to go into the party :)

things you learn when you're a Rho Chi...

yes, I'm a Kappa, sorry to crash your board, but I did learn a cute little Theta chant similar to the ones here:

a K and an A and a P-P-A
A and an L and an P-H-A
T and an H and an E-T-A
Go Theta!
Go Theta!

repeat as desired

Have fun learning these...singing as a group was one of our favorite things to do

During rush, the Thetas used to do this between each song:


KAPPA Alpha Theta, Kappa ALPHA Theta, Kappa Alpha THETA!

I know this reply is pretty late, but for Rush next year we have a song we do alot,

It is like one of the other ones that was posted on here

K and an A and a PPA
A and an L and a PHA
T and an H and a ETA

GO THETA!

Love it, Love it, Love it, Love it,
Love it till you die.
Sing it, Sing it, Sing it, Sing it,
Sing it to the sky.
Fly your Kite we're on to Victory, hey!

K and an A and a PPA
A and an L and a PHa
T and an H and a ETA

GO THETA!

And repeat how ever many times you feel is neccessary!

And there is always the old stand by, I'm a Theta
Shes a Theta. Wouldnt you want to be a Theta!

Good luck in rush girls even though I know it is far away!

I know this topic was way long ago, but we use a really cute song/ chant during recruitment that always gets stuck in my head (and those of the PNMs too :) ):

We are the best (clap clap)
We are the K-A-T
We make up (clap clap)
The best sorority
You can try (clap clap)
But you can't match the fun
'Cuz Kappa Alpha Theta's always number one!

We got swing (clap clap)
No one else is better
--- in the middle of this verse we just start clapping to the beat--
And we're always hot no matter what the weather
We the top the list
The cream of the crop
Kappa Alpha Theta is the top!

She's a Kappa Alpha Theta
Cute little lass
She's a Kappa Alpha Theta
Notice her class
She's a Kappa Alpha Theta
Doin' it right
She's a Kappa Alpha Theta
Wearin' her kite, yeah...

And over and over :) Then on bid day we just do the first part as our cheer. It always gets us all pepped up!

PS: We also do the "KAPPA alpha theta, kappa ALPHA theta, kappa alpha THETA" chant

Thanks for the bump, Jess! Not gonna lie, there were some of these I forgot allllll about! The Theta Kite lullabye is one of my favoriites. But we did a LOT of the above.

This is a variation on one of the above:
Song...
SOOOOOOO strike up a cord for kappa alpha theta, she is the best one that we know, we know! we love our colors, they are BLACK and GOLD! we love our twin stars, shinning out so bold! So won't you strike up a cord for kappa alpha theta, sing through the livelong niiiiiiight! So won't you say "YO HO" and we want you all to know that - Kappa Alpha Theta is alright-right-right!

and this one:
With a K and an A and a P-P-A
A and an L and an P-H-A
T and an H and an E-T-A
Goooo Theta!
Fly em, fly em, fly em til you die!
Come on Thetas, come on Thetas,
raise your voices high!
(repeat twice)

and the lullabye we did slightly differently:
there's a kite called a theta kite,
made of golden light and shadows,
spun by the stars in my room last night.
it's a kite made to catch a dream
hold it tight until I wake
as if to tell me that dreaming's alright.

Is this how you bump? To get the conversation going again?
I'm particularly interested in songs sung at Alpha Omicron, University of Oklahoma because in reading these posts I find that different chapters sing different songs.
Thanks!

Here's 2 more I can remember (though not from the U of OK chapter)...

We did this one as our entrance song to Preference.
One in love, and Theta friendship true
One in faith, that Theta's there for you
One in hope, that you will join us too
With twin stars and kites above.

This one was a big sisterhood/candlelight song:
Remember the black, dear, remember the gold
Remember the story that's always been told
Remember the friendships so faithful and true
Remember that Theta loves no one but you
Once you have found her, you'll find heaven there
As for we Theta's, we can't help but care
Remember she's with you where ever you are,
Just always look for the kite and twin stars
(the tempo picks up for the next part)
Remember the black and gold, dear
Remember the kite we fly
Remember when you are old, dear
That Theta's with you til you die! (high note!)
Remember the twin stars shining through out eternity
(Tempo starts to slow down again)
And if you remember Theta
She'll always remember you
Re-MEM-ber (slow and drifting off at the end)

Any specific song(s) sung at candle passings? We have TWO engaged members and it's been quite a while since we've done a candle passing. Everyone is quite excited and for the life of me, I cannot recall what we sang but I do not think it was "Remember".

Help?

Can anyone write out the lyrics to "Boom boom for the girls we love?" We're having a hard time remembering them and the actives who used to sing it are graduated now...

AZTheta

Not exactly the "boom boom" I remember (although parts are the same) but then, things have evolved and changed over the years:


THETA DOOR CHANT

Boom boom, Boom boom, Boom boom boom boom
Boom boom, Boom boom, Boom boom boom boom

Boom Boom there’ll be nothing but Theta
Boom boom for the girls we love.
Boom boom there’ll be nothing but Theta
‘Neath the twin stars up above.
There’s black and gold
There’s friendships old
There’s Theta pins for the girls we win
Boom boom, there’ll be nothing but Theta
Boom boom for the girls we love.

Boom boom, Boom boom, Boom boom boom boom.
Boom boom, Boom boom, Boom boom boom boom

Theta Theta Theta Theta
I wanna be, I wanna be a, be a, be a
Theta now right here at USC*
We wear our black and gold for everyone to see
So when you’re thinking hey hey what should I do?
Just remember that… Theta Loves YOU!!!

T, T-H, T-H-E-T-A, go Theta
Boom, boom boom, don’t you wanna be a Theta
T, T-H, T-H-E-T-A, go Theta
Boom, boom boom, only way to go is Theta
T, T-H, T-H-E-T-A, go Theta
Boom, boom boom, we want you to be a Theta
T, T-H, T-H-E-T-A, go Theta (repeat)

*you could insert the name of your school here

prettyv, I'll search song books next time I'm at the chapter and if I find Boom Boom, I will photocopy the page(s) that has/have the actual "boom boom" song and music. The chant is added. I can hear the song in my head now (ear worm!).

There are a LOT of songs that are no longer sung; some are very "dated". It's like the hymns that are no longer sung in many church services today. Styles change.

We always sang "Remember" and "Theta Kite" and "One in Love" for candlelights. We just sang all 3 over and over until the candle was blown out.

One of Whitman's favorite chants:

Kappa Kappa Kappa Kappa
Alpha Alpha Alpha Alpha
Theta Theta Theta Theta
Kappa Alpha Theta

Kappa Kappa Kappa Kappa
Alpha Alpha Alpha Alpha
Theta Theta Theta Theta
Kappa Alpha Theta

Boom, boom, boom boom Theta
Boom, boom, boom boom Theta

Boom boom there'll be nothing but Theta
Boom boom for the one that I love
Boom boom there'll be nothing but Theta
with the twin stars up above

There's a Theta kite for every girl, that's right!
And the two twin stars are shinning bright.
Boom boom there'll be nothing but Theta
Boom boom for the one that I love

Kappa Kappa Kappa Kappa
Alpha Alpha Alpha Alpha
Theta Theta Theta Theta
Kappa Alpha Theta

Kappa Kappa Kappa Kappa
Alpha Alpha Alpha Alpha
Theta Theta Theta Theta

Mary Poppins, I know I'm a month late, but do you mean...

I'm a Theta! She's a Theta!
Wouldn't you like to be a Theta too?
Be a Theta! Kappa Alpha Theta! Woo!
Be a Theta! Kappa Alpha Theta! Woo!

And I will now have that song in my head for the next week. :)

I seem to remember that all the words were altered from the ad jingle (text below). Am I right, or am I having a senior moment?

I drink Dr. Pepper and I'm proud
I used to be alone in a crowd
but now you look around these days
there seems to be a Dr. Pepper Craze!
I'm a pepper, he's a pepper, she's a pepper
we're a pepper, wouldn't you like to be a pepper too?
I'am a pepper, he's a pepper, she's a pepper,
if you drink Dr. Pepper you're a pepper too!

Us peppers are an interesting breed
an original taste is what we need
ask any pepper and he'll say
Only Dr. Pepper tastes that way!

I'm a pepper, he's a pepper, she's a pepper
we're a pepper wouldn't you like to be a pepper too?
I'm a pepper he's a pepper' she's a pepper
We're a pepper wouldn't you like to be a pepper too?

Be a pepper, Drink Dr. pepper,
Be a pepper, Drink Dr. Pepper. (Come on!)
Be a pepper, Drink Dr. Pepper,
Be a pepper, Drink Dr. Pepper. (Alright!)
Be a pepper, Drink Dr. Pepper,
Be a pepper, Drink Dr. Pepper.

We never did all the words, we only did the bolded portion altered to the part above. I added the word "too" as I forgot it the other day. We did it as more of a chant on one of the party days.

How do we not have the words to Rock A Bye in this thread? I am posting it now, so that in my old age, I won't have to remember! Apparently one of our very esteemed members has a daughter that is FAR too enamored of ladybugs, so she needs to start singing this song asap!

If anyone has another verse or remembers the words differently, chime in! It seems like I am missing a verse.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rock a bye, rock a bye my baby
Dream sweet dreams, dreams that someday maybe
you will be a Theta, too
and wear the black & gold

(then you make a shooshing sound that I am going to have to sing to you and you snap your fingers)

Don't you cry
there is no reason
Theta tears aren't the ones in season
Pi Phis sigh & Chi Os (or Tri Delts) cry
'cause they don't wear the kite

shooo sho sho shoo sho

Rock a bye, rock a bye my baby
dream sweet dreams
dreams that some day maybe
you will sing this when you're old
knitting little booties out of black & gold!

Hmm... found some songs that I am not familiar with when doing some Googling:

Theta Songs for the BIG Reunion


Theta Lips

Theta lips are smiling;
Theta eyes are too,
Theta love is sweetest;
Theta hearts are true,
Theta’s kite went sailing
Where the pansies grew Theta knows true friendship;
Theta, I love you.

Theta Town

Me and my gal from Theta town, town, town, town
I’d walk a million miles around,
We have our lemonade, picnics, parties, serenades;
Me and my gal from Theta town, town, town, town
To me she is just like a dream, dream, dream;
Got a figure like a Theta beauty queen.
You should see her gown,
It would really knock you down.
Me and my gal from Theta town.

Ring Out Three Cheers

Ring out three cheers for Theta, for Theta,
For we love her as you know;
And surely we’ll not forget her, forget her,
When at last we all must go,
And if we get gay and turn night to day,
It’s nobody’s business but our own, but our own;
Nobody’s business, nobody’s business,
Nobody’s business but our own.

A Beta and A Theta

A Beta and a Theta were a-neckin’ I declare,
Out behind the Beta house, they didn’t know I was there.
Oh, the Beta he was bold, the the Theta she was shy,
And when he asked her if he could, this was her reply,

“You can do it if you wanna, but you better do it right!
You better never do it like you did the other night!
‘Cause if you do, I’m telling you,
I’m never gonna let you, I’m never gonna let ya,
I’m never gonna let you,
Kiss me again!”

Smile Awhile

Smile awhile, as only Thetas do;
While twin starts are watching over you.
Theta eyes you know are true,
Glow with love from only you------
Theta lips come smiling through the years,
Poised to laugh and kiss away the tears;
Give your heart to one that’s true
To your Theta girl.

Boom, Boom

Boom boom, there is nothing but Theta,
Boom boom, for the one that I love.
Boom boom, there is nothing but Theta,
And the twin stars up above.
There’s a Theta kite for every girl that’s right,
And two twin stars shinning out so bright.
Boom boom, there is nothing but Theta,
Boom boom, for the one that I love.

Don’t Pick the Pansies

Please, please, don’t pick the pansies,
Don’t pick the pansies please, please.
Thetas have raised them, so stand back and praise them,
Our black and gold flowers must stay;
So don’t pick the pansies today.

We are Thetas (Theta), Thetas (Thetas)
You can tell by the gleam in our eye.

(Repeat the first verse)


Our Dear Theta (1965)

Now we’ve found in our dear Theta,
A sisterhood loyal and true,
Happiness filled us when we earned the right
To ever be true to the kite.
We’ve found there’s a new way of living,
Through kindness and giving to all,
We know we have found the best place for us---
Our Kappa Alpha Theta home.

Sisters (1966)

Sisters, we’ve learned from each other,
By sharing our problems along with our joys.
Giving each one to the other,
And forming a bond of true sisterhood.

Sisters, we’ve added new meaning to Theta,
Our choice, a new way of life.
Always, we’ll think of these days here,
So greatful to Theta for all we have gained.

Love (1967)

Love is the special way we feel each day,
With all our sisters here to share the way,
Love is the way we feel together here,
Knowing that Theta will be always near.
Faith in the twin stars shining,
Hope in our daily striving,
Love is the greatest of these three.

Theta Remembers (1968)

Theta remembers the hearts oh so tender,
As time goes on and paths are parting.

We will remember a love we surrender,
The love so true and ever growing.

Learning from sisters that living is loving,
And giving our all to the one we hold dear.

We will remember the hearts oh so tender
Our Theta.

Today (1969)

Today while the pansies still bloom in our hearts,
The love that we cherish lasts though we’re apart.
A million tomorrows may all pass away,
Ne’er we’ll forget all the joy that we share, today.

I’ll be a Theta, always a Theta,
You’ll know that I am b the smile that I wear.
Tearful and joyous, we’ll understand always,
Who cares what the morrow may bring.

Love is a mem’ry that time cannot alter,
A virtue without which we stand all alone.
Today we’re together, tomorrow a mem’ry,
To Theta we’ll always belong.
