Varsity Drag

Varsity Drag

Anita O'Day

We've always thought
Knowledge is naught,
We should be taught to dance,
Right here at Tate

We're up to date,
We teach a great new dance,
Don't think that I brag,
I speak of the drag.

Why should a sheikh
Learn how to speak
Latin and Greek badly?
Give him a neat

Motto complete
Say it with feet gladly!
First lesson right now,
You'll love it and how you'll love it:

Here is the drag, see how it goes,
Down on the heels, up on the toes,
That's the way to do the Varsity Drag,
Do-dee-odle-oh-do!

Hotter than hot, newer than new,
Meaner than mean, bluer than blue,
Gets as much applause as waving the flag!
You can pass many a class,

Whether you're dumb or wise,
If you'll all answer the call
When your professor cries:
"Everybody down on the heels, up on the toes,

Stay after school and learn how it goes,
Everybody do the varsity drag!"
