Does anyone remember a student song from St Andrews University in the 1950's
Where did this song come from, and when was it performed?
You ask for a toast, and you ask for a song,
Here's a song and a toast in one.
For I'll sing you a toast to the one we love most,
Fill your glasses and drink every one.
Here's a toast to the red, red Gown,
Fill your glasses and drink to the Gown.
We are here but a day, let us live while we may,
Tomorrow we must all go down.
We are here for the wisdom that knowledge imparts,
In Science and Medicine, Law and the Arts,
And we'll leave with a place evermore in our hearts,
For the red, the red of the Gown.
