Oh ptarmigan are precious, as I'm sure you'll all agree
And ptomaine is putrescence, not fit for the likes of me
But the man who stands among them all
As just the greatest can,
Is a man of pure and passionate pulse
The true perfervid man!

Perfervid! Perfervid!
A sweet ideal
From which I feel
We never should have swervŽd!
Though some are gay, and some hold sway,
Some are well-verbed and vervŽd,
But give me the man with a passion pure,
ANd hurray for the man perfervid!!
