8. The Jesus Cheer
Words by Inside Joke
Music by Bobby Perry and Inside Joke

Back in college when I rolled wit The Cats
We used to get the crowd going, until they was going whack
From chanting cheers, people getting hype
From The Fight Song, to yelling "Blue and White"
"Go Big Blue" was a big cheer at UK
But spelling CATS was the crowd fave
C-a-t-s
Was the "Y" in Kentucky, along with the best
It's all good, until my life got rearranged,
Heard a new cheer, went and changed my team
With my new team, came a new cheer
To let you know who I love, got to make it clear
So get ready, buckle up, we going on ride
Gonna teach you a new cheer that make you come alive
Yeah, you think Rupp can get loud?
Just wait till you hear His warriors shout
Chorus:
(Give me a J) J - you got your J you got your J
(Give me an E) E - you got your E you got your E
(Give me and S) S - you got your S you got your S
(Give me a U) U - you got your U you got your U
(give me a S) S - you got your S you got your S
What's the spell? Jesus
Who's the King? Jesus
Who's the Lord? Jesus
He's the one that frees us!
Cheering for sports, but sports won't bleed
So I'm cheering for Jesus cause he died for me
Make noise for my team, but for Him i'll scream
Called out His name and he set me free
Yeah, done been redeemed!
Spelling Jesus, cause i can't spell Elohim
or El Shaddai or Adonai
Praise Him so loud set the church on fire
Shoot dawg, He invented sports
Even made the wood, that goes on the courts
Making me wanna get delirious
Too many up in the pews acting all serious
While Florida fans be doing the Gator Chomp
Tennessee fans singing Rocky Top
The Braves cheer with the Tomahawk Chop
And the best we do is ring a bell on a rooftop?
Well not anymore, because we raising the roof
We'll be singing "We will Rock You!"
While "We Are Marshall" some may say
"We Are Disciples," Can you give a J?
Chorus:
You might call this a Jock Jam
But it's more like praise to the Grate I Am
The Lion of Judah, known as The Lamb
Blowing His name like the horn of ram
Time out, folks getting up for YMCA
But we shouting out the name above all names
Yeah, any time of the day
Because there's only one name by which man might be saved
You know it, and that name is Jesus
Ain't ashamed of his name, because his name frees us
While the world's trying to deceive us
Getting us more pumped about sports than about Jesus
It' ain't that he needs us
Cause he can make the rocks cry out if he pleases
But that ain't gonna happen, uh uh no way
Cause all his peeps on their feet to say
2 Bits...
