|Yale student Cole Porter|
He expressed his intentions as follows:
I want to row on the crew, mamma !
That’s the thing I want to do, mamma,
To be known throughout Yale when I walk about it !
Get a boil on my neck and then talk about it !
I want to be a big bloke, mamma,
And learn that new Argentine stroke, mamma,
You’ll see your slim son putting crimps in the Crimson,
When I row on the (Brek-ek-coax-coax
When I row on the Varsity Crew.
