Football Song (1898)
(Air: "Sweet Marie")
You had better play at night, U. N. B., Or some place out of sigh where none can see, For the Football that you play, Has made Davy's hair turn gray, And the Porter's pigs eat hay, U. N. B.
Chorus-- Play the game, U. N. B. Good old game, U. N. B. Though the cup you'll never see U. N. B. For the Football that you play Has made Davy's hair turn gray, And the Porter's pigs eat hay, U. N. B.
When your scrimmage was in line, U. N. B. Oh your play was far from fine, U. N. B. "Cop" and Jones were on the wing, And the rest were on a string, And the crowd began to sing U. N. B.
