CLASS SONG (WHICH WILL BE SUNG ON THE 22ND OF FEBRUARY), by             Poet's Biography
First Line: We're sober men and true
Last Line: Will go home with us as before.
Subject(s): Schools; Students


We're sober men and true
In the class of '82;
We recite all our lessons
Without asking questions,
As scholarly men should do.

In Greek we're most intense;
In Literature immense;
But, hey -- diddle -- diddle,
Our Latin's a riddle.
And often devoid of sense.

When we go out of door,
Of text-books half a score
Tucked under our arm
To protect 'em from harm
Will go home with us as before.
