The Engineer Anthem

Godiva was a lady who through Coventry did ride
To show to all the villagers her lovely bare white hide;
The most observant villager, an Engineer of course,
Was the only one to notice that Godiva rode a horse.

We are, we are, we are, we are the Engineers
We can, we can, we can, we can demolish forty beers.
Drink rum, drink rum, drink rum, drink rum and come along with us,
For we don’t give a damn for any damn man who don’t give a damn for us.

My father was a miner in the northern Malamute,
My mother was a mistress of a house of ill repute,
The last time I saw the both, these words rang in my ears-
Get out of here you s.o.b. and join the Engineers.

The army and the navy boys went out to have some fun
Down to the local tavern where the fiery liquors run;
But all they found were empties for the Engineers had come
And traded all their instruments for gallon kegs of rum.

Sir Francis Drake and all his ships set out for Calais Bay,
They heard the Spanish rum fleet was heading out that way.
But the Engineers had beat them by a night and half a day
And although as drunk as hooligans, you still could hear them say…

An artsie and an Engineer found a gallon can.
Said the artise, “Match me drink for drink and see if you’re a man.”
They took three drinks, the artsie fell, his face was turning green;
But the Engineer drank on and said, “It’s only gasoline.”

Venus is a statue made entirely of stone,
She didn’t wear a fig leaf, she was naked as a bone.
On noticing her arms were gone, an Engineer discoursed,
“The darned thing’s busted concrete and should’ve been reinforced!”

So now you’ve heard our story and you know we’re Engineers.
We love to love our women and we love to drink our beers.
So come and have a sip with us, we’ll drink to anyone from far and near
‘Coz we’re a helluva helluva helluva helluva helluva ENGINEER!!!
