Words to "Buckle Down Winnebago"

Buckle down, Winnebago, Buckle down;
you can win, Winnebago, if you knuckle down.
If you break their necks, if you make them wrecks,
You can break the hex, so buckle down!
Make 'em yell, Winnebago, make 'em yell.
You can win, Winnebago, if you ring the bell.
If you don't give in, take it on the chin,
You are bound to win, if you will only buckle down!
If you fight you'll chuckle at defeat.
If you fight, your luck'll not retreat. We repeat.
You can win, Winnebago, if you buckle down.
If you mow them down, if you go to town,
You can wear the crown, if you will only buckle down.
