(With apologies) (Music: The Tale of the Kangaroo)

Oh! if I had a daughter I'd dress her up in green, And send her down to Sackville (Wolfville) To coach the Mt. A. (Acadia's) team.

But if I had a son, sir, I'll tell you what he'd do; He'd yell to ------ with Acadia (Mt. A.) Like his daddy used to do.

Note(s): This song first appears in the 1912 edition of Carmina.
