Whippoorwill FFC III, Fantasy Folk Circle Three (44) RE: FFC III, Fantasy Folk Circle Three 29 Jul 97

Just to get you youngsters in the mood to return to school, let's "Take Down That Old Silver Goblet" and quaff one to the ladies. It's sung to the tune of "Put On Your Old Grey Bonnet."

Dick, I didn't find this one in the files. Here 'tis:

Take down that old silver goblet,
With the (your fraternity) upon it,
And we'll open up another keg of beer;
For it's not for knowledge that we came to college,
But to raise hell while we're here.

Now, the dean of the college
says we should have come for knowledge,
And we mustn't ever take another drink;
for all our likker is a dang sight thicker
Than you get from out of the sink.

Oh, they took away our whiskey,
and they took away our beer,
And they're gonna take our cigarettes, too;
But we thank the Lord above us,
that we still have to love us
The co-eds of old Phi Mu (or whatever rhymes).
