Betty Comden and Adolph Green
Music by Leonard Bernstein

Look at me now,
Four years of college,
Famous professors
Tutoring me;

Scholarship kid,
Everything paid for,
Food and vacations,
All of it free.

Day that I left,
Everyone gathered,
Their cheering still rings in my ears. ..

Ray wreck rah!
Rah wreck ray!
Rah wreck!
Wreck rah!
Rah wreck wreck!
W-E-C, are-E-K, are-E-Q,
Wreck, we love you!

Cause I could pass that football
Like nothin you have ever seen!

Couldn't spell A lick,
Couldn't do arithmetic;
One and one made three,
Thought that dog was C-A-T,

But I could pass that football
Like nothin you have ever seen.

Couldn't write my name,
Couldn't translate je vous aime,
Never learned to read
Mother goose or andr gide,

But I could pass that football
Like nothin you have ever seen.

Couldn't figure riddles,
Puzzles made me pout:

Where the hell was moses when the lights went out?
I couldn't even tell red from green,
Get those verbs through my bean,
But I was buddies with the dean
Like nothin you have ever seen.

Passed without A fuss
English lit and calculus.
Never had to cram,
Even passed the bar exam,

Because I passed that football
Like nothin you have ever seen.

Couldn't dance for beans,
Mashed my girls to smithereens.
Sometimes blood was spilled,
Still my card was always filled,

Cause I could pass that football
Like nothin you have ever seen.

Then there was the week
Albert einstein came to speak:
Relativity!
Guess who introduced him? Me!

Cause I could pass that football
Like nothin you have ever seen.

Had no table manners,
Used ta dunk my roll,
Always drunk the water from the fingerbowl.
Though I would not get up for any she,
The prexys mom -- age ninety-Three --
Got up and gave her seat to me,
Like nothin you did ever see.

In our hall of fame,
Theres A statue with my name.
There we stand, by heck,
Lincoln, washington and wreck.
Cause I could pass that football
Like nothin you have ever seen!
