The Lyrics

Duane Allman in Hell, doomed to sing harmony with Yale's Whiffenpoofs through all eternity/
BAH bahbahbah BAH bahbahbah BAH bahbahbah BAHBAH etc.

I should be a soul man
But I feel like a zhlub
I'm a blues guitarist what the hell am I doing in this glee club?
I lived on the streets, y'all
Done time in jail
But now I'm hanging with a posse of preppie
George Bush* wannabees at Yale
Sometimes I feel (Sometimes he feels)
Sometimes I feel (Sometimes he feels)
Like I've been tied to the Whiffenpoofs
Tied to the Whiffenpoofs
Tied to the Whiffenpoofs
Good Lord I feel like I'm dyin'
(Good Lord he feels like he is dying)

BAHbahbah BAAAHBAAAHBAAH etc.

We're poor little lambs y'all
Who've lost our way
Little black sheep, little black sheep, black sheep who've gone astray
Gentlemen songsters
Out on a spree
Doomed from here to eternity, Lord have mercy on such as we!
Sometimes I feel (Sometimes he feels)
Sometimes I feel (Sometimes he feels)
Like I've been tied to the Whiffenpoofs
Tied to the Whiffenpoofs
Tied to the Whiffenpoofs
Good Lord I feel like I'm dyin'
(Good Lord he feels like he is dying)

BAHbahbah BAAAHBAAAHBAAH etc.

(with exaggerated white boy enunciation)

SOMEtimes I feel (Sometimes he feels)
SOMEtimes I feel (Sometimes he feels)
As though I had been tied to the Whiffenpoofs
Tied to the Whiffenpoofs
Tied to the Whiffenpoofs
Good Lord I feel as if I were die-ie-ie-ING-GUH!

(Lord have mercy on such as we... bah bah baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh)

*George H.W. Bush (41)

Funny...I was just thinking of this OS a couple of weeks ago
This is very good.Where I live, there is a radio program on Saturdays (WERS-Emerson College Radio) that plays all accapella. Lots of colleges seem to have these glee clubs and they all have strange names. "Whiffenpoofs" is probably the funniest, though.
