HEAP OLD WIGWAM
By the tracks of great Northwestern, By the shining long black trackway Stands the schoolhouse of young heroes. Here beside it is the Greene Square With the gaunt, unloaded cannon And the gorgeous flowers in summer,
By the tracks of great Northwestern.
Long ago a sturdy hero Went to school, a lowly sophomore,
Went to school to learn the Latin,
Math and science—other studies;
Here he met the great chief, Hallman, Leader over all the students;
Here he flunked and learned things over Till his teachers went stark crazy.
But he signed up soon for fieldwork And through that he met successes.
On the gridiron knocked them senseless
Making touchdowns for his own school; In the cage, he made the baskets,
Made the 'ponents bite the hardwood.
You shall hear how our young hero Graduated in his grey gown;
Finally grabbed his earned diploma For his bright athletic passes;
How he sought to make a living Working hard each crowded moment. Oft he thinks of his old high school, Fondly thinks of his old high school, Where he went long moons ago.
Years have passed since our young hero Graduated in his grey gown;
Fondly returned and was astounded To behold the same old schoolhouse Still in use by lusty students.
Still beside the great Northwestern.

Monographs and ergographs Are different from siesmographs; At least that’s what I’ve read And tried to keep in head.
In choosing your activity,
You'd best avoid lexicography.
