The Lyrics

Couldn't help but to capture one of the passage that many of us go through during our life time: post-secondary education.
Ah, for just one time I would take the College Passage
To find the hand of myself reaching for the passing grade;
Tracing one clear line through a world so wild and savage
And make a working passage to the C.

Forward from relativity 'tis there 'twas said to lie
The reason to the universe for which so many tried;
Seeking gold and glory, leaving weathered, classic views
And a long-forgotten lonely sheet of note.

Ah, for just one time I would take the College Passage
To find the hand of myself reaching for the passing grade;
Tracing one clear line through a world so wild and savage
And make a working passage to the C.

Ninety years thereafter, I take passage lecture-wise
In the footsteps of brave scholars, where their "sea of thesis" remained;
Watching theories rise before me, then behind me sink again;
This tardiest academic, studying hard across the page.

Ah, for just one time I would take the College Passage
To find the hand of myself reaching for the passing grade;
Tracing one clear line through a world so wild and savage
And make a working passage to the C.

And through the night, beneath the coat, the timer ticking by;
I think upon Arrhenius, Linus Pauling and the rest,
Who cracked the matter ramparts, and did show a path for me
To race the roaring grade point to the C.

Ah, for just one time I would take the College Passage
To find the hand of myself reaching for the passing grade;
Tracing one clear line through a world so wild and savage
And make a working passage to the C.

How then am I so different from the first men through this way?
Like them, I left a normal life, I threw it all away.
To seek a College Passage at the call of many life
To find there but the road back home again.

Ah, for just one time I would take the College Passage
To find the hand of myself reaching for the passing grade;
Tracing one clear line through a world so wild and savage
And make a working passage to the C.
Feel free to sing this after your exams are over.
