Oh my gosh... can it be?!? I'm developing school spirit! I guess this sort of thing happens when you graduate highschool!

Another great MIT song...

Godiva was a lady who through Coventry did ride 
To show the royal villagers her fine and pure white hide
The most observant man of all, an engineer of course, 
Was the only one who noticed that Godiva rode a horse 

We are, we are, we are, we are, we are the Engineers 
We can, we can, we can, we can, demolish forty beers 
Drink rum, drink rum, drink rum all day, and come along with us 
'Cause we don't give a damn for any old man who don't give a damn for us! 

She said, "I've come a long, long way, and I will go as far 
With the man who takes me from this horse and leads me to a bar 
The man who took her from her steed and lead her to a beer 
Was a bleary-eyed surveyor and a drunken engineer 

A maiden and an Engineer were sitting in the park 
The Engineer was working on some research after dark 
His scientific method was a marvel to observe 
While his right hand held the figures, his left hand traced the curves 

Princeton's run by Wellesley, and Wellesley's run by Yale 
And Yale is run by Vassar, and Vassar's run by tail 
Harvard's run by stiff pricks, the kind you raise by hand 
But M.I.T. is run by Engineers, the finest in the land 
      MIT was MIT when Harvard was a pup
      And MIT will be MIT when Harvard's time is up
      And any Harvard Son of a Bitch who thinks he's in our class
      Can pucker up his rosy lips and kiss the Beaver's ass
An MIT surveyor once found the gates of Hell 
He looked the devil in the eye, and said "You're looking well" 
The devil looked right back at him, and said "Why visit me - 
You've been through Hell already; you went to MIT!" 

We are, we are, we are, we are, we are the Engineers 
We can, we can, we can, we can, demolish forty beers 
Drink rum, drink rum, drink rum all day, and come along with us 
'Cause we don't give a damn for any old man who don't give a damn for us! 

some more...(note I'm not responsable for the obscene verses, simply making a record, thats all)

Godiva was a lady well-endowed there is no doubt
She never wore a stitch of clothes, just wound her hair about
The first man who did make her was a Engineer, of course,
But on just one beer an artsie queer had made Godiva's horse

Venus was a statue made entirely of stone
Without a stitch upon her she was naked as a bone
On seeing that she had no clothes, and Engineer discoursed
"Why, the damn thing's only concrete, and should be reinforced!"

An artsman and an Engineer once found a gallon can
Said the artsman, "Match me drink for drink, let's see if you're a man."
They drank three drinks, the artsman fell, his face was turning green
But the Engineer drank on and said, "It's only gasoline!"

An Engineer once stumbled through the halls of Building 10
That night he'd drunken rum enough to drown a dozen men
In fact, the only things there were that kept him on his course
Were the boundary conditions and the Coriolis force

Late one night, an engineer was lost in work and toil,
He set off to find a darling girl to help discharge his coil.
In no time at all he'd warmed her up, her resistance at a low...
They fluxed until the morning's light, when their fuses, they did blow.

We saved our dough for years to send the kid to MIT
Although we knew it was a place of wild depravity
But now we know our kid is safe and we should have no fear
He's never even heard of Sex cause he's an engineer

My father peddles opium, my mother's on the dole
My sister used to walk the streets but now she's on parole
My uncle plays with little girls, my Auntie raped a steer
But they don't even speak to me, 'cause I'm an Engineer

Fornication, Copulation, Penetration, Fuck
Rim job, reem job, nose job, blow job, cunnilingus, Suck
Eating beaver, dipping wick, taking it up the rear;
these words don't mean a thing to me cause I'm an engineer

I am a whore from Radcliffe and I fuck for fifty cents
I'll lay my ass upon the grass, my pants upon the fence
I'll let you rub my belly and, on sundays fuck for free.
But get off of me you son of a B, if you're from MIT!

And some more verses, because you can never have too many for a drinking song. Courtesy of the MIT Songs section of How to GaMIT, in defiance of the MIT administration. Also, if you're looking for the tune to this wonderful MIT song, try finding a CD by the MIT Chorallaries or attend one of their a capella concerts. Although this is a commonly known song, they're one of the few musical groups willing to sing it in public.

My father was a miner from the Northern Malamute,
My mother was a mistress in a house of ill repute.
The last time that I saw them, these words rang in my ears,
The Army and the Navy went out to have some fun.
They went down to the taverns where the fiery liquors run.
But all they found were empties, for the engineers had come,
And traded all their instruments for gallon kegs of rum.
Rapunzel let her hair down for two suitors down below,
So one of them could grab a hold and give the old heave-ho.
The Prince began to climb at once, but soon came out the worst,
For the Engineer rode the elevator and reached Rapunzel first.
Caesar set out for Egypt at the age of fifty three,
But Cleopatra's blood was warm, her heart was young and free.
And every night when Julius said goodnight at three o'clock,
There was a Roman engineer waiting just around the block!
An engineer once staggered in though the Roderick Gate,
He was carrying a load you would expect to ship by freight.
The only thing that kept him upright and on his course,
Were the boundary conditions and the coriolis force.
Ace Towing roams the streets of Cambridge each and every night,
They tow cars and stow cars and hide them out of sight;
They tried to tow Godiva's horse, the Engineers said "Hey!"
Then towed away their towing truck, and now the Ace must pay!
Sir Francis Drake and all his ships set out for Calais Bay.
They'd heard the Spanish rum fleet was headed on their way.
But the engineers had beat them by a night and a half a day
And though as drunk as ptarmigans, you still could hear them say:
My father peddles opium, my mother's on the dole.
My sister used to walk the streets, but now she's on parole.
My brother runs a restaurant with a bedroom in the rear.
But they don't even speak to me 'cause I'm an engineer.

An MIT computer nerd got drunk one fateful night
He opened up the console and smashed everything in sight
When they finally subdued him, the judge he stood before,
Said, "Lock him up for twenty years, he's rotten to the core!"
A man sat in a tavern with a lovely Cambridge lass
And stared when for the nineteenth time she raised and drained her glass
he said "You've out drunk four strong men, and half the bar, my dear."
but the maiden smiled demurely and said "I'm an engineer."
A Harvard lad in robes was clad and set to graduate.
A pompous gleaming spectacle he was upon that date.
But not a quarter hour after he got his degree,
he was serving fries to engineers from good old MIT!
The firehose by day and forty beers by night,
An engineer may never sleep and still be just as bright.
And should you ever ask him how he keeps up his routine,
he'll raise his trusty can of JOLT, smile and say "caffeine"
