Baobab kneel, baobab weep
Mnyamaa kadumbu
Now baobab sleep
Akili nyingi
Huondowa maarifa
Like baobab tree

Walk as baobab do
Watu wote waezaliwa huru
And speak like baobab, too
Mnyamaa kadumbu
Walk as baobab do
Watu wote waezaliwa huru
And speak like baobab, too
Mnyamaa kadumbu

Baobab kneel, baobab weep
Mnyamaa kadumbu
Now baobab sleep
Baobab sleep
Baobab sleep




Translation:
Mnyamaa kadumbu = One who keeps silent endures
Akili nyingi huondowa maarifa = Great wit drives away wisdom
Watu wote waezaliwa huru = All human beings are born free

At the University
We have a commitment to diversity
But not in Galens
Not in Galens
'Cause all the Honoraries are men
(Except for Stalburg).

I don't know how you elect us
But you haven't picked a single wench
'Cause it's a sausage fest
It's a sausage fest
Upon the Honorary bench

Yes, we are sexually homogenous
Though a couple of them are sort of androgynous
Well, that's on you guys
You're all misogynists
And you selected us
You sexist pigs

Since 1937, guess how many female Silver Shovel winners there have been Two.
And who is the party most directly responsible for perpetuating and propagating this chavanist glass ceiling agenda The med students. You.


Well, you've been kind enough to choose
A couple Asians and some Jews
But that does not excuse your bigotry
Well, maybe I'd expect this
From a med school in Texas
But the U of M's more sexist, as you see

So here's your call to action
When next year's vote concludes
Think ovarian
Egalitarian
And please don't just pick dudes.

I am a balloonman as my father was before
I keep my eyes upon the horizon
And feet upon the wicker floor
In lean times and times of plenty
In peace times and times of war
I am a balloonman as my father was before
I am a balloonman as my father was before

This nation was built upon the broad balloonman's back
No train or schooner beats the ballooner
Who wants neither sea nor track
The payloads we bear through blue skies
Have borne us through skies of black
This nation was built upon the broad balloonman's back
This nation was built upon the broad balloonman's back

I cannot guarantee to ship your cargo
To the destination you may have in mind
The wind decides your fate
When you're travelling by hot airs
But I can take your freight
Somewheres

I cannot guarantee to ship your cargo
To the destination you may have in mind
The wind decides your fate
When you're travelling by hot airs
But I can take your freight
Up to thirty pounds dry weight
Yes, I can take your freight
Somewheres

I am a balloonman as my father was before
I keep my eyes upon the horizon
And feet upon the wicker floor
In lean times and times of plenty
In peace times and times of war
I am a balloonman as my father was before
I am a balloonman as my father was before
I am a balloonman as my father was before
I am a balloonman as my father was before

Say it with your pads
Stay low, stay strong
All out, all game, all season long
All season long

Hustle, hit, never quit
No, never rest
Til our good is better, and better is best
Our better is best
There's no I in quest

And the traffic clears up, literally,
On the extra mile

Go Pack!
One nation under cheese
Pack Go!
One nation under cheese
Go Pack!
So let the tundra freeze
Pack Go!
One nation under cheese
Go Packers Go
Go Packers Go
Go Pack!
Until our blood runs cold
Pack Go!
We'll hemorrhage green and gold

Tear the turf,
Demolish every dome
And swear to Vince that you'll bring his trophy back home
Bring it on home

Film study on the Lions, Vikes, and Bears
Working ours off so we can kick theirs
We can kick theirs
Still suck do The Bears

And the traffic clears up, literally,
On the extra mile

Go Pack!
One nation under cheese
Pack Go!
One nation under cheese
Go Pack!
So let the tundra freeze
Pack Go!
One nation under cheese
Go Packers Go
The Bears still suck!
Go Packers Go
Go Pack!
Until our blood runs cold
Pack Go!
We'll hemorrhage green and gold

Pain is temporary, pride is forever.
If winning isn't everything, why do they keep score
Show me a good loser and I'll show you a loser.
After further review, the Bears still suck!


Go Pack!
One nation under cheese
Pack Go!
One nation under cheese
Go Pack!
So let the tundra freeze
Pack Go!
One nation under cheese
Go Packers Go
The Bears still suck!
Go Packers Go
Go Pack!
Until our blood runs cold
Pack Go!
We'll hemorrhage green and gold
