To Prexy

Prexy Thompson's a friend of mine,
Friend of mine, yes a friend of mine.
Ready and steady, and always in line
Is smiling, good- natured Prexy;
That's the reason we're feeling so fine,
Feeling so fine, yes feeling so fine,
Yes Prsident Thompson, we're proud
of our Prexy,
Prex Thompson's a friend of mine.

Yes, Doctor Thompson's a friend of mine,
Friend of mine, yes a friend of mine.
What care we if the profs complain,
So long we have our Prexy.
That's the reason we're feeling so fine,
Feeling so fine, yes feeling so fine,
For W.O. Thompson is a friend of us all
Yes, Prexy's a friend of mine.
