what does the Hokie Bird sing
does he sing like Nikki G
inspiring chants and cheers
GO HOKIES
with eyes still filled with tears

what does the Hokie Bird sing
does he sing for victory
for a nation filled with grief
GO TECH
our hearts in disbelief

what does the Hokie Bird dance
does he dance right where he stands
puffed chest and waiting ear
LETíS GO
stands strong against the fear

what does the Hokie Bird dance
does he dance now all alone
as he waits for a reply
HOKIES
in strength he yields to sigh

what does the Hokie Bird cheer
does he cheer for those who died
in his voice we hear them say
H-O-K-I-E-S
together as we pray

what does the Hokie Bird cheer
does he cheer for those alive
we lift our voices to cry out
HOKIES
one voice we stand and shout

what does the Hokie Bird sing
he sings to dance and cheer
with him we stand and say
LETíS GO HOKIES
invent the brighter day

what does the Hokie Bird sing
he does sing for victory
this family will prevail
LETíS GO TECH
in Godís steps we wonít fail

This is probably refering to one of America's recent tragedies. I'm not familiar with the HOKIES, but the message is still apparent.

A very nice message of victory over triumph.
