Did I miss the article on the new lyrics?

there needs to be one in between "knowing it by heart" and the mumbling one. I know it the same way a lot of people know "bohemian rhapsody" I know probably 75-80% of it and mumble the missing words here and there.

My three year-old son can sing the lyrics, and most fans/alumni/students can't? Wow! Not that it is that big of a deal but it is part of the many traditions we have.

I actually spent many years teaching my family (willingly or no) the lyrics to MANY of our good ol' Kansas songs, including the fight song. However, I taught them using the original original lyrics... you know... Aggies... Braves... and they'll be the ones we still sing, so can't say we'll notice a whole lot.
