Hail, Montezuma

We with loyal hearts our homage pay;

Proud, working and glorying,

In the spirit of the Aztec name;

To thee, San Diego,

And the fond Traditions old and new,

A tribute raised in lasting praise and steadfast faith;

Hail! Montezuma.


Hail, Montezuma,

We salute thy glorious destiny;

Far seeing in company days,

Men and women strong who live in truth;

To thee, San Diego,

To the Black and Scarlet we'll be true;

An echo comes from Aztec drums through all the years;

Hail! Montezuma.
