Copyright, 1881, by Will H. Kennedy.

We're students in a college where all branches we pursue.
We're versed in all the classics that the ancients ever knew ;
In Latin studies we excel, our Greek is superfine.
For oft we burn the midnight lamp and thus improve the mind

We vanquish all with bat and ball, and when our college crews
Determined rise to win a prize, there's no such word as "lose."
We'll swim or skate, or leap a gate, these are the students joys;
For worth and mirth, there's none on earth, like Yankee college boys.

Our " Freshmen " and our " Sophomores " will strive with might and main.
Our rivals beat on flood or field our honor to maintain;
Athletic games and knowledge, too, improve the "coming man,"
And form in after years the " brain " and " muscle " of our land.-Chorus.

We dearly love a harmless joke, and often will prepare
A feast of fun to drive away and keep away dull care ;
And when a comrade needs a friend, yes, any in our band,
He'll find the Yankee college boys are ready heart and hand.- Chorus.
