KU Crimson is a color that's very bright
It's the shade of red that you see at night
When you look at the traffic lights or a fire truck
Or a juicy tomato that you want to pluck

KU Crimson is also the color of a rose
That you might give to someone you love or propose
It's the color of blood that flows in your veins
Or the color of wine that you drink to ease your pains

KU Crimson is a color that stands out from the rest
It's the color of passion, of energy, of zest
