School Song and Fight Song
THOMAS JEFFERSON ALMA MATER
Frederick Abbott, a speech teacher, wrote the lyrics for the school song, and Francisco DeBurgos, the music teacher, wrote the score.
There is a school we all love well,
‘tis THOMAS JEFFERSON
Her glories we all always tell,
Our THOMAS JEFFERSON.
On field and campus winning boys
And girls all ready stand for
Dear old THOMAS JEFFERSON
Our Alma Mater Grand
Dear old school of mine,
I’ll sing thy praises everywhere,
Dear THOMAS JEFFERSON.
FIGHT SONG - (FIGHT THE TEAM) ACROSS THE FIELD
Across the Field is a fight song of The Ohio State University and is used at Thomas Jefferson High School athletics and various school events. According to the Songs of The Ohio State University
"Introduced at a pep rally for the 1915 Illinois game, Across the Field made its Ohio Field debut at the same game. Though the lyrics are geared to the football field, it has become a rallying song for all Buckeye teams. Its strains are instantly recognized as representing the best of Ohio State, whether played in a TV commercial, a tailgate party, or a women's basketball game. While it has been arranged in many different ways and used for many purposes, its most popular appearance is at Buckeye football games. During tough drives, TBDBITL plays Across the Field to urge the players on to victory. The players conclude every game day by singing it in the locker room at the end of it all."

Fight the team across the field
Show them Jeff High is here
Set the Earth reverberating
With a mighty cheer
RAH! RAH! RAH!
Hit them hard and see how they fall
Never let that team get the ball
Hail! Hail! The gang's all here
So let's beat the (Bears) now!
For who! For whom!
