THE BARBL I STERS
1. (TUNE: MY MERRY OLDSMOBILE)
Come away with me, J. Wayne -- we'll go strolling down the lane.
We will leave our car behind -- 'cause our sticker's the wrong kind.
We won't drink with faculty -- there'll be less fraternity.
We will walk, walk, walk about sixty blocks -- while the cars all rot away.
2. (TUNE: OVER THERE)
Over there, over there, send your car to the lot over there.
For J. Wayne is coming, the new plan's humming.
The boys are thumbing everywhere.
So prepare, say a prayer
For the lot we ain't got It ain't there.
We're not disabled, we've Just been tabled.
You can take your stickers and stick 'em you know where.
(We don't care).
3, THE BARBLISTER'S THEME SONG (TUNE: WHIFFENPOOF)
'Round the table, in the Vars'ty
Where the profs all love to dwell,
Swiggin' gallons of that stuff you know so well.
Apple polishers assembled,
With their glasses raised on high;
The old A for admiration casts its spell.
Now that A for admiration
Is a magic thing to sell,
And our sages of the Law all think its swell.
So we'll put aside our ladies
And concentrate on profs,
And the casebooks and reports can go to hell.
CHORUS: We are poor little lambs being led astray;
Blah Blah Blah.
We get stuck with this faculty guff all day;
Blah Blah Blah.
Great legal theorists off on a spree,
First Tweedle-dum and then Tweedle-dee;
This is what leads to an LL.B.
Blah Blah Blah.
4. (TUNE: I'VE GOT A LOVELY BUNCH OF COCONUTS)
We've got a lively bunch of Candidates.
See them there, all sitting In a row.
Big ones, small ones -- some gray on the head.
See them smile, but all the while
They're full of schemes, instead.
Oh, we've got a lively bunch of candidates.
Ready to fight for issues of some note.
Yes, there sit the men who fight with tongue and pen
Singing, roll-a-boll-a-boll-a Dollar a Vote.
Refrain: Singing, roll ---------
Yes, we've got a lively bunch of candidates.
They're the pride of Florida, so we're told.
They speak of greater things,
Of what Prosperity brings
If we'll only roll-a-boll-and give 'em our vote.
Refrain: Singing, roll -------
