��3 We go to taste the joys of life, like bubbles on its tide, Now glittering in its sunbeams, and dancing in their pride;

But bubble like they'll break and burst, and leave us sad, you know, There's none so sweet as memory of Alma Mater O. Oh ! Alma Mater O, etc.

4 Hither we came with hearts of joy, with joy wp now will part, And give to each the parting grasp, which speaks a brother's heart; United firm in pleasing words, which can no breaking know,

For Sons of Yale can ne'er forget their Alma Mater O.

Oh ! Alma Mater O, etc. 6 Then brush the tear-drop from your eye, and happy let us be, For joy alone should fill the hearts of those as blest as we; One cheerful chorus, ringing loud, we'll give before we go, The memory of college days and Alma Mater O,

Oh ! Alma Mater O, Oh ! Alma Mater O, Hurrah ! hurrah ! for college days and Alma Mater O.

OLD NOAH, HE DID BUILD AN ARK.

��Chorus.

���2 He drove the animiles in two by two, || Ter. The elephant and the kangaroo.

Cho. — If you belong, etc.

3 And then he nailed the hatches down, || Ter. And told outsiders they might drown.

Cho. — If you belong, etc.

4 And when he found he had no sail, || Ter. He just ran up his own coat tail.

Cho. — If you belong, etc. 6 Full forty days he sailed around, || Ter. And then he ran th' old scow aground. Cho. — If you belong, etc.

6 He landed on Mount Ararat, || Ter. Just three miles south of Barnegat.

Cho. — If you belong, etc.

7 O, Eve she did the apple eat, || Ter.

She smacked her lips, and said 'twas sweet. Cho. — If you belong, etc.

��8 When Adam walked the garden round, || Ter. He spied the peelings on the ground.

Cho. — If you belong, etc.

9 And when he saw them, he looked blue, || Ter, And vowed he'd have some apples too.

Cho. — If you belong, etc.

10 So he and Eve did strip the tree, || Ter. And chanked away till they could see.

Cho. — If you belong, etc.

11 And then they saw how they'd got sold, || Ter. In sucking down what Satan told.

Cho. — If you belong, etc.

12 And since old Brimstone sold them so, || Ter. Most devilish sells have been the go.

Cho. — If you belong, etc.

13 Then keep your nose upon your face. | Ter. It don't look well when out of place.

Cho. — If you belong, etc. by permission.
