Hot-To-Go is the traditional cheers that symbolizes the spirit of our Society. The lyrics of the cheers are shown below:


*E-F-S hot-to-go
Ar ha, hot-to-go
Ar ha, hot-to go*
(Repeat * 2 times)

#We said get, get, get on down# (Repeat # 2 times)

Come on everybody, let’s shake the floor,
And we start to sing, when I count to four,
I say one (one), two (two), three (three), four (four),

EFS unite and show our might,
(EFS unite and show our might)
And show them how we work and play,
(And show them how we work and play)
We work in the day and party in the night,
(We work in the day and party in the night)
We boogie till the night is end,
(We boogie till the night is end)

We are, we are EFS, EFS,
We are, we are EFS, Kong U EFS.
