Address tae CUHC

Fair fa’ your honest, sonsie face,
Great chieftain o the Varsity-race!
Aboon them a’ ye tak your place,
Blues, Beds or Blundies:
Weel are ye worthy o’ a grace
As lang’s my arm.

The groaning dancefluir there ye fill,
Your aerials like a distant hill,
Your bins wad help to mend a mill
In time o need,
While thro your pores nae goals distil
Like amber bead.

Your sticks see rustic Labour dight,
An cut Oxf*rd up wi ready slight,
Trenching their gushing entrails bright,
Like onie ditch;
And then, O what a glorious sight,
Warm-reekin, rich!

Then, toma for toma, they stretch an strive:
Deil tak the hindmost, on they drive,
Till a’ their weel-swall’d kytes belyve
Are bent like drums;
The auld Guidman Flibby, maist like to rive,
‘Bethankit’ hums.

Is there that owre his Oxf*rd shandy,
Or pinky that wad staw a sow,
Or shredder wad mak her spew
Wi perfect scunner,
Looks down wi sneering, scornfu’ view
On sic a club?

Poor devils! see their owre their trash,
As feckless as a wither’d rash,
Their spindle shanks a guid whip-lash,
Their nieves a nit;
Thro hockey pitch or field to dash,
O how unfit!

But mark the Rustic, toma-fed,
The trembling earth resounds their tread,
Clap in their walie nieves a stick,
They’ll make it whissle;
An flicks an slaps, an hits will fly,
Like taps o thrissle.

Ye Pow’rs, wha mak mankind your care,
And dish them out their bill o fare,
Auld Cambdrige wants nae skinking ware
That jaups in luggies:
But, if ye wish her gratefu’ prayer,
Gie her CUHC.
