Lyrics

Since I went to college
I feel like a sap
I've gained lots of knowledge
but there's still one handicap

I'd tip my hat to you
I'd do just that
(Bum-bum-bum-bum)
Take it right off for you
But I haven't got a hat
(Bum-bum-bum-bum-bum-bum-bum-bum-bum)

I'm just a college boy
Even at that
(Bum-bum-bum-bum)
I'd tip my hat to you
But I haven't got a hat
(Bum-bum-bum-bum-bum)

I'm really not a sap
It's plain to see
But if I wore a cap
They'd never let me back in the university

I think you're swell, I do
I'm standing pat
I'd tip my hat to you
But I haven't got a hat
