Songs of Yale....

The Whiffenpoof Song  

Eli Yale - Bulldog Fight Song

                                     

Bright College Years  (performed by the Yale Glee Club)

Bright College years, with pleasure rife, the shortest, gladdest years of life; 
How swiftly are ye gliding by!  Oh, why doth time so quickly fly?

 The seasons come, the seasons go,  the earth is green or white with snow,
But time and change shall naught avail,  to break the friendships formed at Yale.

 In after years, should troubles rise, to cloud the blue of sunny skies,
How bright will seem, through mem'ry's haze, those happy, golden, bygone days!

Oh, let us strive that ever we, may let these words our watch-cry be,
Where'er upon life's sea we sail:

 "For God, for Country and for Yale!"
