Most memorable songs/chants

When you went through rush, what were some of the most memorable songs or chants?

For me, I will never forget...

"Kaaaapa, kaaaaapa, kaaaapa gaaaamma..
I am so haaaaappy that I aaaaaaammmmaa..."



Also, Tri Delt did a Jimmy Buffet themed rush skit so they rewrote Cheeseburger in Paradise as Tri Deltas in Paradise. Very cute! I was singing it for days!

My two were:

"I really hate to leave ya but I really must say,
Goodbye from Z-T-A"

and the one that we can't ever get out of our heads around here (to a fault, it's ridiculous!) is:

"Tri-Delta... do do do... Tri-Delta... do do do... Tri-Delta Tri-Delta do do do do do Delta D-D"

I've even started singing it with DG in it:
Delta G... do do do... Delta G... do do do... Delta G Delta do do do do do do Delta DG!
... yeah, it doesn't fit at all, but it gets stuck.

I love Rush chants and cheers!!!!

Such a good thread!!!

I loved the Tri-Delta chant that ended,
"...All we want is pledging you to Delta Delta Delta"

All the girls would make the Delta sign with their hands....so fun.
Does anyone know the whole chant? I still mumble it in my head whenever anyone on a GC rush thread goes DDD.

DG
A Delta Gamma that's what I amma
A Delta Gam Gam Gam
That's what I am am am
So, Rah Rah for DG
Rah Rah for DG
Rah Rah for DG
DELTA GAMMA

Not sure if I remember that chant right, I think I might be putting two together...but I loved the DG chants.

Gamma Phi:

G G G Phi B
Gamma, Gamma Phi Beta
G G G G Phi B
We're Gamma Phi Beta Girls!

Very Catchy!

And of courses I loved ADPis,
Boom Boom Boom Boom
I wanna go ADPi,
Boom Boom
and honey that ain't no lie
Boom Boom
I wanna go ADPi
Don't you?
Boom Boom Boom Boom
I wanna wear white and blue
Boom Boom
and wear that Diamond too
Boom Boom
I wanna go ADPi don't you?
We truly are sisters known for loyalty,
we can't be beat on friendship,
It's Alpha Delt for me!
Boom Boom Boom Boom
I wanna go ADPi
Boom Boom
Any honey that aint no lie
Boom Boom
I wanna go ADPi
Don't you, Don't you, Don't you?
Won't you?

LOVED IT, SO MUCH FUN!!!

Gamma Phi had a similar one with this funny clapping thing -- no one could get it out of their heads all week!
Sung in rounds...
half singing Gam-ma Phi Be-ta, Gam-ma Phi
And the other half singing:
We are the girls
Who really are amazing
With our crescent and pearls
We are true hearted girls
(can't remember the last line..ugh)

Alpha Phi:
A - with an A - with an A-L-P
With a P- with a P- with a P-H-A
P - with a P - with a P-H-I
Allllpha, Alpha Phi!

Sing an ivy, sing an ivy, sing it to the sky! Hey!
Shout an ivy, shout an ivy, shout it 'till we die!
All the world will shout an ALPHA PHI!

And my fav, of course...
Pi Phi Beta Phi
P-I-P-H-I Pi Phi
Me for Pi for Beta Phi for
I just love Pi Beta Phi

Now we sing to our Pi Phi
Vision of our binding ties
HONOR! FRIENDSHIP! LOYALTY!
Hail the best Fraternity

She's an angel in disguise
Sisterhood personified
Wears an arrow sleek and smart
Pointing high above her heart

College Days may come an go
Pi Phi lingers in the glow
NORTH! SOUTH! EAST! WEST!
Pi Phis are the very best!

And the Pi Phi Beta Phi part gets repeated between each....
Fell for it hook, line and sinker!

Our rho chis sang a song for each sorority each day before parties started and it will never get out of my head...it went like this:

Chi Omega Chi Chi Omega, Chi Omega Chi Chi Omega, Chi Omega you will see its the best sorority! Chi Omega Chi Chi Omega!
Tri Delta, Tri Delta, Delta Tri Delta Tri Delta Delta Delta HEY!
K-A-P-P-A D-E-L-T-A, Kappa K, Delta D, we're the best sorority!
K-A-P-P-A Take it twice and add a G-A-M-M-A Kappa Kappa Gamma HEY!
All my life I wanna be a DG, DELTA GAMMA
Kappa Alpha Theta Kappa Alpha Theta Kappa Alpha Theta Theta Theta!

Anyway, try having THAT stuck in your head LOL!
One of the songs the Chi O's did during rush was stuck in my head forever too...it was to the "I wanna be a supermodel" song from clueless but went " I wanna be a chi omega"....Great, now that I typed these, they are all stuck in my head again LOL!

Delta Phi Epsilon is the only sorority that I remember singing/chanting during Rush.

This one sticks out the most in my head:

D, D, D with a Phi
Phi, Phi, Phi with an E
D with a Phi, Phi with an E
D Phi E

My roomie was a DG and while they didn't sing it at Rush, I always had it in my head:
I don't give a good God da*n
Who the hell or what I am
As long as I'm a Delta Gam
Go DG!

My Kappa mother used to sing all the time around the house:
Wiiiiiiiiiiith a K and an A and a P-P-A
And a G-A-M-M-A
That's Kappa Gamma
That's Kappa Gamma

She also would sing what was to become one of my cheers (she said she always remembered the XOs on her campus yelling):
Chi Omega Chi
Chi Omega Chi
Chi Omega, Chi Omega, Chi Chi Chi
Rho Beta Upsilon Eta Sigma Chi
Chiiiii Omega
Chi Omega Chi

I just remembered parts of two songs that I got so hooked on. I think they were both Chi O...went something like this...

I'm Chi Omega born and Chi Omega bred and when I die I'll be Chi Omega dead.

Is that right?

And the other song went something like "C with an H with an I..."

We actually use the "Delta Gamma born and bred" one at our school. And I think you are mixing up two different Delta Gamma ones, but I may just not have heard of it. I know we do Delta, Delta Gamma I'm so happy, that I amma... and then we do the Rah Rah for DG seperately. But I'm not absolutely sure. The other one that both us and KD use goes like this:
D-E-L-T-A Delta D-E-L-T-A
G-A-Double M-A Gamma G-A-Double M-A
We are the Delta Gammas
We wear the bronze, pink, and blue
We are the Delta Gammas
Don't you wanna be DG, too?

KD just says "We are the ones for you" instead of bronze, pink, and blue

FINALLY...
The KD one that they used second round that I got stuck in my mind is
K-A-Y D-E-E
K is for Kappa, D is for Delta
We are the Kappa Delta Girls
We are so
Happy to meet you,
Come out and greet you,
We are the Kappa Delta Girls...

Then there's more, but it's been a while since I rushed, so I forget... but if I remembered that much... well, yeah, it stuck.

At my school, it was Pi Phi that did that one, and NO ONE I have talked to has been able to forget it! It's been almost 3 years, and I can still sing it...and I only went back to Pi Phi once or twice during recruitment.

AchtungBaby80,
Isn't it funny how these things stick with you well after Rush is over? I love this thread it's bringing back such good memories, the downside being I can't get these chants out of my head!

Allllpha, Alpha Phi!

Sing an ivy, sing an ivy, sing it to the sky! Hey!
Shout an ivy, shout an ivy, shout it 'till we die!
All the world will shout an ALPHA PHI!
On our campus we used a similar one, and I don't remember A Phi using it:

With an A, with an A, with an A L P
With an A L P and a P H A
With an A L P and a P H A
Alllllpha Xi!

Sing it, sing it, sing it, sing, sing it to the sky,
Come on sisters [fuzzies], come on sisters,
Shout it till you die,
I'm so proud
To be an Alpha Xi!

But the chant that really sticks in my head:

My sorority has a first name
It's A L P H A
My sorority has a last name
It's D E L T A
The middle name is hard you see
It's spelled X I pronounced K-zeeeeeeeeeeeee
A L P H A X I, D E L T A Buh-bye!
