The man known for writing the Minnesota Twins "We're Gonna Win Twins" rally song has died. 

Dick Wilson, 83, died August 29. Wilson, known as the "King of Jingles", wrote the song which has been synonymous with Twins baseball since the team moved to Minneapolis from Washington D.C. in 1961.

Twins president Dave St. Peter told WCCO's Dave Lee during the Morning News about the song's impact.

"A couple different generations have grown up hearing that song and immediately thinking about Twins baseball," St. Peter said. "Whether it's Met Stadium, the Metrodome, or Target Field." 

If you aren't familiar with the jingle, or the lyrics, you can hear it prior to every Twins home game when the Twins take the field.

"We're Gonna Win Twins" lyrics:

We're gonna win Twins, we're gonna score!

We're gonna win Twins, watch that baseball soar!

Knock out a home run, shout a hip-hurray!

Cheer on the Minnesota Twins Today!
