Sing Along

“Every time we score a goal, it’s the law that we have to sing ‘Lord Jeff,’” Glee Club President Alex Speir ’11 told the crowd assembled in the library of South on Thursday evening. In cooperation with the RCs, Speir and other members of the club arranged gatherings over the past two weeks at various dorms to teach their fellow students, especially first-years, several of Amherst’s classic college songs, just in time for Homecoming. The Glee Clubbers passed out sheet music and guided everyone through the lyrics—and movements—to “Lord Jeffery Amherst,” “To the Fairest College,” “Hand Me Down My Bonnet” and “Old Amherst’s Out for Business.” P-L-A-Y the audio files below to follow along with the Glee Club and learn (or re-learn) the songs for yourself!
