For all of my MIT and Geeky friends

I found this on YouTube and since I now know how to embed video, I had to add it here.

The Chorallaries of MIT perform a Classic original song, The Engineer's Drinking Song.
The song is a staple in the group's repertoire, (we used to sing it at the end of each concert) and is the most requested song. David Bass, one of the group's original founder, arranged the music, which contains many fugal and baroque elements.

I've posted the Chorus and the main verses sung by the group.


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!

The males sing this verse:
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

And the females sing this one:
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

Other verses are rotated in - many can be found at this url:
