What plague o'erhangs "Fair Harvard"
The student to decoy?
What man can tell the potent spell
That binds my noble boy?
Time was when he could walk upright,
With free and easy tread,
But now he reels from neck to heels
With bent and threatening head.
CHORUS.Oh, the gait of the Harvard "man!"
Describe it you who can:
'Twixt a swing and a swagger,
A stride and a stagger,
Oh, call it by name who can.
With arms outspread as if to fly,
And legs placed wide asunder;
