Here is the song lyric of Tom Lehrer : and you can also sing and watch music video
Thank you, for my first encore I'd like to turn to a type of song that
people like myself find ourselves subjected to with increasing frequency as
time goes on, and that is the college alma mater. You'll find yourself at a
reunion of grads, and old undergrads, and eh... somebody will start
croaking out one of these things and everyone will gradually join in --
each in his own key, of course -- until the place is just soggy with
nostalgia. Well, a typical such song might be called Bright College Days,
and might go like this.
Bright college days, O carefree days that fly,
To thee we sing with our glasses raised on high.
Let's drink a toast as each of us recalls
Ivy-covered professors in ivy-covered halls.
Turn on the spigot,
Pour the beer and swig it,
And gaudeamus igit-ur.
Here's to parties we tossed,
To the games that we lost,
We shall claim that we won them some day.
To the girls young and sweet,
To the spacious back seat
Of our roommate's beat up Chevrolet.
To the beer and benzedrine,
To the way that the dean
Tried so hard to be pals with us all.
To excuses we fibbed,
To the papers we cribbed
From the genius who lived down the hall.
To the tables down at Morey's (wherever that may be)
Let us drink a toast to all we love the best.
We will sleep through all the lectures,
And cheat on the exams,
And we'll pass, and be forgotten with the rest.
Oh, soon we'll be out amid the cold world's strife.
Soon we'll be sliding down the razor blade of life.
But as we go our sordid sep'rate ways,
We shall ne'er forget thee, thou golden college days.
Hearts full of youth,
Hearts full of truth,
Six parts gin to one part vermouth.
