The Lyrics

The dear old home town lost the the Thanksgiving game. AGAIN! We really thought this was gonna be the year...
(Mater Alma...) Mater Alma!
(Mater Alma...) Mater Alma!

The words are Latin, I know.
(Mater Alma...) Mater Alma!
She worries me so.
(Mater Alma...) Mater Alma!
If they'd learn to move the ball
and play defense like a wall
we would not be below!
(Mater Alma...) Mater Alma!
(Mater Alma...) Mater Alma!

"Cubbies" should be their name.
(Mater Alma...) Mater Alma!
To me, they're about the same.
(Mater Alma...) Mater Alma!
Every time I open my mouth
profanities just come out.
How could we score so low?
(Mater Alma...) Mater Alma!
(Mater Alma...) Mater Alma!

(piano break)

We come home to our field.
(Mater Alma...) Mater Alma!
I ask them, "What's the deal?"
(Mater Alma...) Mater Alma!
Our coach thinks he is the king of gridiron
but I think he's the guy we should be firin'
and don't come back no mo'!
(Mater Alma...) Mater Alma!
My... (Mater Alma...) Mater Alma!
Ugh... (Mater Alma...) Mater Alma!
(Mater Alma...) Mater Alma!
(repeat 'til fade)

Well gee whiz, I'll give you a triple 5 for this, MP, if nobody else will .... very clever play on the original song's oft-repeated lyric.
