I had to do it. The “What was your class song?” thread made me remember Born Free by Andy Williams. We were the class of 67 and were pretty amazing in many ways, but not when it came to that.
So in revenge, I started this one because if you thought our song was crappy, get a load of this class motto:
We have mastered the hill; let us now ascend the mountain
Fercryinoutloud, a freakin’ * drunken ourangoutan* could have beat that. It has all the pretension of people trying desperately to be all serious and grown-up like, but who haven’t quite mastered the trick.
(OK, it probably was a pretty accurate description of most of us at the time, but we could have done much, much better.)
Now, having disgorged this painful memory, I await yours with glee (plus fava beans and a nice chianti),
