Rock Out to the Sneezy the Penn State Squirrel Song

Onward State introduced Sneezy the Penn State Squirrel to the world last fall and it’s been Sneezy mania ever since. Penn State’s favorite squirrel has taken the world by storm, appearing in international media and running a popular Facebook fan page.

But I guess they say you haven’t really made it until they write a song about you.

Bill Dann and Jack Servello took care of that earlier this week with the release of the “Sneezy the Penn State Squirrel Song.” Check it out below:

Lyrics:

Here’s another famous squirrel song that some say may be cheesy
This rodent is gray, approachable, and known to all as Sneezy
Some squirrels have a reputation and some are downright rogue
But not our stylish Sneezy girl, for she is strictly vogue

She has a well-known cousin who hails from Jersey Shore
Last year his fame spread far and wide, the one that we dubbed Thor
Yeah, he may sport a purple hue, but Sneezy bleeds blue and white
Our fashion conscience fluffy tail is a household name alright!

Chorus:
Though the Pennsylvania air makes me sneeze (ah-choo!)
It is here that I live a life of ease
I am Happy Valley’s favorite furry girl
They call me Sneezy the Penn State Squirrel (ah-choo!)

With several siblings she was born atop an old elm tree
The others went their separate ways when time came to be free
But Sneezy seemed to have a date with destiny and fame
And it wasn’t long till everyone on campus knew her name

One day a College student came into Sneezy’s World
She fell in love with her warmth and charm and bushy tail so curled
And seeing great potential, she proposed a business deal
She would dress her up in custom hats in exchange for a meal

Chorus:
Though the Pennsylvania air makes me sneeze (ah-choo!)
It is here that I live a life of ease
I am Happy Valley’s favorite furry girl
They call me Sneezy the Penn State Squirrel (ah-choo!)

Working for peanuts and other treats suited Sneezy fine
No other squirrel had this chance among her own bloodline
One day she’d be a Princess and the next time she’s a witch
Or a cowsquirrel in the saddle, our Sneezy found her niche

She’s been a hippie from the 60’s paying tribute to a fad
A nurse to make you better, a darling College Grad
A funny little Valentine, a friend to Uncle Sam
She’s even been a Christmas elf, miss Sneezy’s quite the ham

Chorus:
Though the Pennsylvania air makes me sneeze (ah-choo!)
It is here that I live a life of ease
I am Happy Valley’s favorite furry girl
They call me Sneezy the Penn State Squirrel (ah-choo!)

To say that she wears many hats is no exaggeration
She’s made her mark and many friends among the Nittany Nation
We’re hoping Berkey Creamery will name her in a flavor
Something filled with crunchy nuts that everyone can savor

Though known to many globally, she takes it all in stride
And is content to be a welcomed guest which makes us swell with pride
For no matter where the spotlight shines, her home will ever be
Right here amidst her humble roots, our hometown girl Sneezy

Chorus:
Though the Pennsylvania air makes me sneeze (ah-choo!)
It is here that I live a life of ease
I am Happy Valley’s favorite furry girl
They call me Sneezy the Penn State Squirrel (ah-choo!)
