Writers of song

The only Sigma Chi song more frequently sung than "The Sweetheart of Sigma Chi" is "A Sig I Am." Written in 1884 by three undergraduates of the Beta Chapter at Wooster, this century-old song can be heard echoing in every chapter house throughout the Sigma Chi world. Every Sigma Chi knows the words and melody. Its popularity among Sigma Chi's can be attributed to its simplicity of melody and words. It was first sung by the delegates to the 1884 Grand Chapter.

A Sig I am, a Sig I'll be; A Sig through all eternity.
A Sig by day, a Sig by night; to be a Sig is my delight.
Sig, oh Sig, Sigma Chi; I'll be a Sig until I die.
Sig, oh Sig, Sigma Chi; I'll be a Sig until I die.
