Whiffenpoof Song (words Meade Minnegerode; tune attributed to Tod Galloway) From the tables down at Mory's, to the place where Louie dwells, To the dear old Temple bar we love so well. Sang the whiffenpoofs assembled with their glasses raised on high And the magic of their singing cast its spell. Yes, the magic of their singing of the songs we love so well, ``Shall I Wasting'' and ``Mavoureen'' and the rest. We will serenade our Louie while life and voice shall last Then we'll pass and be forgotten with the rest. cho: We're poor little lambs who have lost our way Bah, bah, bah. We're little black sheep who have gone astray Bah, bah, bah. Gentlemen songsters off on a spree Damned from here to eternity Lord have mercy on such as we! Bah, bah, bah. A 1910 parody of Kipling's Gentlemen Rankers JY
