The tune is to "They Didn't Believe Me." Here are the words:

And when we tell you how wonderful you are,
You'll never believe it, you'll never believe it,
That girls so fine could ever be
United in fraternity
And they all wear the little golden key.
And when you wear one, and you're certainly going to wear one,
The proudest girl in this wide world you'll be,
You'll never believe it,
You'll never believe it's true,
That from this great wide world we've chosen you.

Exactly. When Mr. ISUKappa and I were on our honeymoon we stopped in a mall in Seattle. I was in the Crane's store (admiring all the gorgeous stationery I can't afford yet) and they had They Didn't Believe Me (which is an old jazz song) playing over the sound system. I started humming along thinking to myself, I know this song, how do I know it??? Finally, about two hours later, it hit me--it was a Kappa song!

We sing "If you ask us" and then segue into "And When We Tell You" Ahh... memories.

If you ask us why we love you
We will ask you if you know
How the melodies of music
Seem to blend together so
There is something in the music
In the life of KKG
That tunes us all together
In just one key

(I'm doing that from memory, so I'm not sure if the words are exactly right)

It's a two-part song meaning one group of people is always singing in the background while the second group sings the main verse.

[group 1 - by themsevles the first time, the second time group 2 joins in]
ba doom ba doom Go Kappa
ba doom ba doom Go Kappa
ba doom ba doom Go Kappa
boom boom boom boom KKG

[group 2]
Go Kappa and you'll go the right way
Go Kappa and you're here to stay
Go Kappa and you will see
What a great bunch of girls live at KKG

the 2nd group doesn't start their line until the first group gets to Go Kappa on each of their lines (so you always hear the ba doom ba dooms) and they end with KKG at the same time, in harmony. I don't think there's a name to the tune and it's kind of hard to explain without hearing it, but it's just a cute, neat little song. It's usually a "welcome" song during one of our recruitment rounds.

In regard to the tune to "Up in Monmouth College," my son said the chorus kind of sounded like "If You're Happy and You Know It." Maybe that will help us figure out if the tune is a "real" song!

I thought of another one we did the other day:

Well I'm a
Kappa Kappa Gamma
Bet your life I am a
Girl who's proud to wear the
Golden Key
So tell the
Other houses
What ya wanna be
Be the best go KKG

sung through twice then followed by
K-A-PP-A take it twice and add a G-A-MM-A
Kappa Kappa Gamma YAY!

Funny story...

The camp I've attended/worked at since I was fifteen has an older song that is rarely sung called "The Ashgrove" - It's a really beautiful slow song, and we mostly stick to peppy fast songs about animals, but a few times each summer someone will sing "The Ashgrove" at a campfire...

This past summer, one of my little sisters came to camp with me, and we're at opening campfire and two vocally gifted counselors are doing a wonderful rendition of "The Ashgrove" - and Tracy catches my eye from around the fire circle, and starts mouthing something. I can't figure out how she would know the words to this song, since it was her first summer at camp, and then I realize what she's doing...

She's singing "On the Heart of Each Sister" - it's the same tune! I had been hearing both songs for a few years, and never realized that they had the same tune! It was so neat. Wonder which song came first...

That's too funny! I think it's even older than that. I want to say it's originally a hymn because I knew the tune before I became a Kappa! If I had my Kappa songbook, I could tell you.

ETA: I just checked my songbook and you're right! The tune attributed is The Ash Grove. So that one must have come first!

We always sang "Kappa oh Kappa" immediately before "And when we tell you."

Kappa oh Kappa our hearts are with you
The love of each sister will last our lives through
A million tomorrows will always be
Locked in our hearts
by the bonds
of the Golden Key

there's at least one more verse, but I can't remember it.

Anniebell, I am totally new to this forum so I don't even know if I am doing this right. But I am looking for new recruitment songs and was wondering if you could email me the wavs. I appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks!
