Subject: ADD: Sing a Song of Colleges
rutgers has an interesting variation - oral history interview of Richard M. Snethen, Rutgers College Class of 1943:

Sing a Song of Colleges

Sing a song of colleges, I'll tell you where to go.
Oxford for her knowledge; Cornell to learn to row,
Yale for her gall darn luck, Rutgers for her men.
NJC for pretty girls, for rivals NYU.

Sing a song of colleges a dying mother said,
"Don't send my boy to Princeton; I'd rather see him dead,
but send my boy to Rutgers, or even to Cornell,
but as for Pennsylvania, he's better off in hell.

To hell, to hell with Pennsylvania,
to hell, to hell with Pennsylvania,
to hell, to hell with Pennsylvania,
to hell with the U of P, PU."
