I'm a Sigma

(to the tune of "Are You Sleeping")

I'm a Sigma. I'm a Sigma.
Who are you? Who are you?
Can't you tell by looking?
Can't you tell by looking?
I'm one too. I'm one too.

With a Little Bit

The Lord above made Tri Sigs to be loyal
To be honest, generous, and true.
The Lord above made Tri Sigs to be loyal
And with a little bit of luck,
He will help us to be loyal too!
With a little bit, with a little bit,
With a little bit of luck,
He'll help us too.
Tri Sigma is based on loving sisterhood,
United in all the things they do.
Trri Sigma is based on loving sisterhood.
And with a little bit of luck,
With a little bit of luck,
We may be sisters some day soon
With a little bit, with a little bit,
With a little bit of luck,
We may be sisters too.
With a little bit, with a little bit,
With a little bit of luck,
We may be sisters too.

Take a Little Bit of Ginger

Take a little bit of ginger,
Take a little bit of grit,
Take a little bit of spirit,
Take a little bit of wit,
Take a little bit of sunshine,
Take a little bit of pep
Put them all together
That's a Sigma rep.

m-m-m-m ginger,
m-m-m-m grit,
m-m-m-m spirit,
m-m-m-m wit,
m-m-m-m sunshine,
m-m-m-m pep
Put them all together,
That's a Sigma rep--
U-ta-tion, yeaaaah!

Tri Sig Girl

A Tri Sig girl is hard to beat
She's got that Sigma look
From head to feet.
She's got that smile, that style
That winning way.
And when you look at her you'll
Recognize her and you'll say:
"Now there's a girl I'd like to know.
She's got that Sigma look from
Head to toe.
And when you look at her,
It's quite a treat, it's hard to beat
A Tri Sigma girl!"

Love for you we shar.

Always will be there.

Days of Tri Sigma

(to the tune of "Where Are You Going My Little One")

Days of Tri Sigma will fly away, die away
Days of true friendships will be memories
We have loved, we have learned
Let us now teach in turn
For the flame we have kindled
Forever must burn.

All of our footsteps will fade away, fade away
Others will follow the paths we have trod
With our songs filled with joy
With our hearts filled with love
We must keep the flame burning
For those yet to come.

500 Miles

There's a gleam in my eye
And you know the reason why.
I have pledged my loyalty to Sigma Tri.
Sigma Tri, Sigma Tri, Sigma Tri, Sigma Tri.
I have pledged my loyalty to Sigma Tri.

Once you meet a Sigma Tri
You will love her till you die
A friend to you she'll always be,
eternally.

Sigma means the world to me
Friendship, love, fidelity
Join the sisters here with me and
You'll agree,
You'll agree, you'll agree
Join the sisters here with me
Be a sister here with me in Sigma Three.

Cruel War

The cruel war is raging
The pledges have to fight
To wear down members
From morning till night.
We must wear our pledge pins
It grieves my heart so
Can't we please just forget it
No, pledges, no.

It's not just on Monday
But every other day
That members will call us
And we must obey
I'll carry their lunches
My pledge pin I'll put on
And then have them ol' coke dates
From dusk until dawn.

The many things we do
The many things we said.
If I'm not soon active
I'll surely be dead.
Soon comes my pledge test
I'll do my very best
May I come with you members
Yes, my pledge, yes.
