Subject: RE: Back of Bus Songs
Back in the late 40's (seems like only yesterday), the Columbia Band traveled to away games by bus. THis could involve a seven or eight hour trip, starting at midnight---we used to have a limerick pool. Everyone pitched in five dollars, we took turns at limericks (interspersed with Ay! Ay Ay Ay! choruses), and you were out if you couldn't come up with one that hadn't been sung. Last one left got the pot. And I recall some sessions going four hours or more.
