Mt. Gayley (13,510 ft.)
Named by Sierra Club in 1938
(Air: "The Pope")
(Repeat last two lines of each verse)
Oh, have you seen the heavens blue,
When just seven [eight?] stars are shining
through, shining through,
Right overhead a jovial crew --
They're joining hands to make the Bear.
And oh, that Bear's a glorious sight,
A-circling 'round the pole all night,
pole all night,
And once you've seen him
you're all right,
You've seen our California Bear.
He has a very patient air, patient air,
He wears a Paderewski hair, 'reski hair,
He's center rush, in the heavens I swear,
Our silent, sturdy Golden Bear!
Oh, have you seen our banner blue,
The Golden Bear is on it, too, on it, too,
A Californian through and through,
Our totem, he, our Golden Bear!
--Charles Mills Gayley
