Lyrics:

When we first came on the campus, Freshmen we, as green as grass; Now, as grave and reverend Seniors, Smile we over the verdant past.

Chorus-- Co-ca-che-lunk-che-lunk-che-la-ly, Co-ca-che-lunk-che-lunk-che-lay, Co-ca-che-lunk-che-lunk-che-la-ly, Hi! O, co-ca-che-lunk-che-lay.

We have fought the fight together, We have struggled side by side, Broken are the bond that held us, We must cut our sticks and slide.

Chorus

Some will go to Greece and Athens, Some to Italy and Rome, Some to Greenland's ice mountains, More, perhaps, will stay at home.

Chorus

What will the President do without us, For so very long a time? "Really, Gentlemen, this is disgraceful, Where do you get your Manus sign?"

Chorus

When we come again together, Vigentennial to pass; Wives and children all around us, Won't we be an uproarious class?

Chorus
