The Lyrics

While trying to work on parodies of some other Colleges (notably Peterhouse, Caius, Trinity, John's, Robinson and New Hall), I put my Andrew Lloyd Webber CD on the computer and suddenly got the idea for this one. Rather full of jargon, so here are some explanations. A May Ball is a big posh post-exam event - Christ's does actually have one every two years but the way I've put it made a good rhyme. The Tompkins Table is a league table of average exam marks for each College. A supervisor is a professor for whom one has to write huge essays and then meet for an hour-long heated academic debate of the ideas in said essays. And in Cambridge a DOS is nothing to do with computers but stands for Director of Studies.
I have never seen your face outside lecture halls
You don't seem to go nowhere, not even May Balls
You're terribly organised, each second planned
And now I've seen your College scarf, so I understand
Every day you have to try and prove that you're able
To keep your College at the top of the Tompkins Table
Don't get me wrong, don't get me wrong now
Don't get me wrong, don't get me wrong now
I only wanna know, I only wanna know now
I only wanna know, I only wanna know now

You're at Christ's? You're at Christ's?
I hear that life there is not so nice
You're at Christ's? You're at Christ's?
Doesn't your social life pay the price?

Tell me, does the Fellows' craze for strict lecture-going
Give the students no spare time, not even for rowing?
Are you always serving supervisors or DOS -
Or is there just one instant when you are your own boss?
Do you spend all your evenings in the library?
'Cause if you do, then I must say that you are quite scary
Don't get me wrong, don't get me wrong now
Don't get me wrong, don't get me wrong now
I only wanna know, I only wanna know now
I only wanna know, I only wanna know now

You're at Christ's? You're at Christ's?
Do you not find that your days lack spice?
You're at Christ's? You're at Christ's?
Is it worth all that you've sacrificed?
You're at Christ's? How bizarre!
Are staff as tough as it's said they are?
You're at Christ's? How bizarre
At 8pm when they close your bar!

You're at Christ's? You're at Christ's?
Surely a bit less work would suffice?
You're at Christ's? You're at Christ's?
Maybe you ought to take my advice:
You're at Christ's? How bizarre!
Swotting alone won't make you a star!
You're at Christ's? How bizarre!
Network a bit and you might go far!

I hope you do as well on your college assignments as you do on your college parodies. Well done, Elizabeth.

Don't know the original song. But still really funny. Good ol' Cambridge.
