Jill Scharff © 2002


All Wives

Yale '62, Yale '62!
Hail from your wives - here's lookin' at you!
You passed the test,
You are the best,
Hail to the white Y on blue!
Still lots to do,
Dreams to pursue
Though each of you is sixty-two
All that you've done
Still time for fun
All Hail to Yale '62!

All with audience
CHORUS

Yale '62,
Yale '62!
Hail to the white Y on blue!
All who belong
Let's sing the song
All Hail to Yale '62!

Solo: Jill Scharff

At 6Y2
At 6Y2
You have a web-page that says what you do:
Peter Bell Cares,
Garvin prepares
New York's Olympics for you,
T. Culver's horse
Winner of course
Like Nobel-prized Al and George,
Back from Japan,
Kovel is the man
To write a letter to you

All with audience
CHORUS

Yale '62,
Yale '62!
Hail to the white Y on blue!
All who belong
Let's sing the song
All Hail to Yale '62!

Solo: Jan Clark

Who's in his prime?
Who's in his prime?
Who'll make the cover of Newsweek or Time?
Who has think tanks?
Richard Fairbanks,
Fred, also star of ragtime.
Vic M. makes scenes,
Mann makes machines,
Yale kids, his own production line,
Scoville's CD,
And Stott's hot doggie
Sizzle on your site sublime

All with audience
CHORUS

Yale '62,
Yale '62!
Hail to the white Y on blue!
All who belong
Let's sing the song
All Hail to Yale '62!

Solo: Barbara Oliver

Who is Tim Hall?
Mirror on the wall?
He is the squirt with the dirt on y'all
Check it today --
What does he say?
Click on the web, read it all:
"Wives are for thee
Some have had three.
Others came out. All agree
Less 'baccy, less booze.
Your job you may lose
And yet you still have a ball"

All with audience
CHORUS

Yale '62,
Yale '62!
Hail to the white Y on blue!
All who belong
Let's sing the song
All Hail to Yale '62!

Solo: Maggie Sipple

What do you do?
What do you do?
What are the various careers you pursue?
Moriarty hunts heads,
Scharff shrinks'em instead,
The Raven's still into voodoo.
Sipple's left school,
Finkle's no fool,
Valier's at the St. Louis zoo,
Brenner loves hearts,
And Pillsbury imparts
Counsel -- and gives more than you

All with audience
CHORUS

Yale '62,
Yale '62!
Hail to the white Y on blue!
All who belong
Let's sing the song
All Hail to Yale '62!

Solo: Jan Clark

Litvack said "Hey!
I'm PGA!"
Honneus said "Tappy our hon. secretray
(Kirk take this down)
Went from Our Town
To be the king of Broadway."
Kirkpatrick's news
Says "Global is Hughes;
Jackson says steak's his mainstay;
Wheeler dropped wine."
You don't have to pine,
Livingston's grape's here to stay

All with audience
CHORUS

Yale '62,
Yale '62!
Hail to the white Y on blue!
All who belong
Let's sing the song
All Hail to Yale '62!

Solo: Patti Ravenscroft

62 vies,
62 tries
Healthy and wealthy to be, even wise.
Divorce is behind.
Life is more kind
Though there's less hair and more size.
If your flab sags,
Eyes have big bags,
Smithies may cry, not Yale guys!
Seeking youth's fount
Your lovers you count --
Seven hundred loves takes the prize!

All with audience
CHORUS

Yale '62,
Yale '62!
Hail to the white Y on blue!
All who belong
Let's sing the song
All Hail to Yale '62!

Solo: Jill Scharff

Who's cheek to cheek?
Who's with a DEKE?
Who wants to freak out reunion week?
Shipper with clocks?
Lydon who talks?
Or Goodman whose venture's at peak?
Y' love your PC,
The kids, pets -- and me.
What more does anyone seek?
You want your fun
With your honeybun
One point eight times a week

All with audience
CHORUS

Yale '62,
Yale '62!
Hail to the white Y on blue!
All who belong
Let's sing the song
All Hail to Yale '62!

All Wives

What about us?
What about us?
What made us get on the Newhaven bus?
You loved our fizz,
You thought our bizz
Was to have kids with no fuss.
Now kids are gone
We're moving on
To studies or business or songs
You're getting old
We're getting bold,
This decade's all about us

All with audience
CHORUS

Yale '62,
Yale '62!
Hail to the white Y on blue!
All who belong
Let's sing the song
All Hail to Yale '62!

All Wives

Yale '62,
Yale '62!
Hail from your wives - here's lookin' at you!
You passed the test,
You are the best,
Hail to the white Y on blue!
Still lots to do
Dreams to pursue
Though each of you is sixty-two.
All that you've done
Still time for fun
All Hail to Yale '62!

All with audience
CHORUS

Yale '62,
Yale '62!
Hail to the white Y on blue!
All who belong
Let's sing the song
All Hail to Yale '62!
