When you think about it, a Griz Card is really one of the more indispensable things a University of Montana college student has. It gives you discounts, it gets you access to places most others would not.

It really was only a matter of time before someone realized its importance and put their love for it into the form of a song. And to be honest? It's actually kinda catchy!

Lyrics:
There you are my maroon friend,
It's time to open my dorm again.
You let me into the gym for fun,
What do you say we go for a run?

Yes, college days are so much better,
With a handy Griz card in the pocket of my sweater.
When I'm hungry you take me to the food zoo,
Is there anything you cannot do?

I never need a wallet to spend money on a date,
I can use U-Money for any deposit, isn't that great!
You're perfect for me, I'll never lose you in the gutter,
It's almost like we were made for each other!

Yes, college days are so much better,
With a handy Griz card in the pocket of my sweater.
When I'm hungry you take me to the food zoo,
Is there anything you cannot do?

It's My Griz Card, mine, just for me!
If I ever lost you I would be terribly sad you see,
You are a good friend, and of that I am glad,
Thanks to you, I'll never ever be sad!

Yes, college days are so much better,
With a handy Griz card in the pocket of my sweater.
When I'm hungry you take me to the food zoo,
Is there anything you cannot do?

Yes, is there anything you cannot do?

 

Oh, and prepare for more to come. Apparently a "Griz Card Song Contest" is underway on campus. Let's just hope there's a little more thought going into those than those absurd Harlem Shake on UM Campus videos from last year...
