Seven Lords A-Leaping... and Other Seasonal Matters

(A Christmas Cantata)

Old traditions never die

At least at Harvard, don't ask why

So no matter how absurd it

Seems (we all have heard it

Several times at least before)

Settle back at least once more

Genial as old friends meeting

The Crimson's Merry Christmas Greeting:


At Christmas time we give up all rancor

And smile sweet as cherubs at those we've bitten.

We'll pretend to be more Albert Schweitzer than Shanker

Get furry and cute, and make like a kitten.

The Crimson (we know) has been damned for pomposity

If you only knew what swell guys we are!
