(1) Ja, vi elsker dette landet
Norwegian National Anthem
Traditional Opening

(2) Let Her Sleep Under the Bar
arr. Chan Everett '60
Traditional Drinking Song
Traditional Opening


Ja, vi elsker dette landet,
som det stiger frem,
furet, værbitt over vannet,
med de tusen hjem, —
elsker, elsker det og tenker
på vår far og mor
og den saganatt som senker
drømmer på vår jord.
Og den saganatt som senker,
senker drømmer på vår jord.

'Twas a cold winter's evening
The guests were all leaving
O'Leary was closing the bar
When he turned and he said to the lady in red
"Get you you can't stay where you are!"

Oh, she shed a sad tear in her bucket of beer
And thought of the cold night ahead
When a gentleman dapper
Stepped out of the...lavatory...
And these were the words that he said,
these were the words that he said:

Her mother never told her
The things a young girl should know
About the ways of college men
And how they come and go
...mostly go

Now age has taken away her beauty
And sin has left it sad scar
So remember your mothers
And sisters boys
And let her sleep under the bar.

The Society of Orpheus and Bacchus New Haven, Connecticut

Founded in 1938, the Society of Orpheus and Bacchus is the second longest-running a cappella group in the United States, after the Yale Whiffenpoofs. Initially, the group went without a name until they capitalized on a backhanded compliment received at a party—“These SOBs are good!”— invoking the talents of Orpheus, minstrel to Olympus, and the legacy of Bacchus, god of revelry, to form the SOBs. ... more
