GLENBARD WEST FIGHT SONG!

Oh, it's G-L-E-N-B-A-R-D
Oh, well, it's Glenbard, Glenbard fight again!
And for the school and team we love so well,
We're going to yell and yell and yell and yell and yell!
And when the teams in green and white appear,
With heads held high we stand and shout and cheer,
And for the school and team go on to fame
win this game.
Fight, team fight!
