8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right
This verse is in 4/4 time.
To the tables down at Mory's, To the place where Louie dwells,
To the dear old Temple bar we love so well.
Sing the Whiffenpoofs assembled with their glasses raised on high,
And the magic of their singing casts it's spell.
Yes, the magic of their singing of the songs we love so well,
"Shall I Wasting" and "Mavourneen" and the rest.
We will serenade our Louie while life and voice shall last,
Then we'll pass and be forgotten with the rest.
(Click here for the chorus)
We're poor little lambs…
