I'm sure that many school "fight" songs go to the tune. One
I remember from the 1960s (probably written at least ten years
earlier) is for Shimer College (SHY-mer), then located in
Mount Carroll, IL (now part of the IIT campus in Chicago).
Shimer taught the Hutchins curriculum originated at the University
of Chicago, using original readings and the discussion method
in classes. Like Univ. Chicago in its better days, Shimer had
no sports teams except a pick-up soccer group. Notes on obscure references follow.
SHIMER COLLEGE FIGHT SONG
Oh, my eyes have seen the glory of the triumph of the id
My libido has converted me to man from callow kid
My unconscious is unleashed and my superego's rid
And the id goes marching on
Sociology forever, anthropology forever
Integration conquers all
Sublimation and frustration aren't any fun at all
So the Life Instinct each evening finds me at its beck and call
In Science, Metcalf, Dearborn, on the golf course, or North Hall
The id goes marching on.
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of our Freud
Of error and all fallacy his works they are devoid
But after taking OMP my ego was destroyed
And the id goes marching on.
In the 2nd verse the places are buildings where students
could go after hours to make out. Or to an adjacent golf course
if the weather was good.
To describe its liberal-arts program, "integration" was the
buzzword: the courses were woven together, and tested by
exams emphasizing the interconnections. The culminating
course in the senior year was Organization, Methods, and
Principles of Knowledge (OMP), notorious for its difficulty
(or vagueness, some said).
