Revised "Ramblin' Wreck" versions

The Diversity Task Force's recent suggestion that a new and more sensitive fight song be put into place has been taken as an open invitation by the eager satirists of Georgia Tech. Here are some notable samples.

Ramblin' Wreck

I'm a Ramblin' Wreck from the Georgia Institute of Technology,
Management and History and one heck of a (insert major here),
A heckuva, heckuva, heckuva, Heck of a (insert major here).
Like all the jolly good guys and gals I drink my spring water clear.
I'm a Ramblin' Wreck from the Georgia Institute of Technology,
Management and History and one heck of a (insert major here),

Oh! If had some offspring sir or ma'am, I'd dress them in white and gold,
but only if they showed interest in the Institute because I want them to explore
their own educational options and not feel pressured to attend my Alma Mater,
And put them on the campus to cheer the brave and bold male and female athletes.
But if they wanted to go to Tech, I'd tell you what they'd do,
They would yell Georgia is an academically challenging school in Athens!
like their daddy didn't do because grew up in a politically incorrect era.

Oh I wish I had a barrel of water, Kool-Aid mix and sugar three thousand pounds to make it with,
A college bell to put it in, a clapper to stir it round,
I'd drink my nonalcoholic beverage to all good fellows and gals who come from far and near,
I'm a ramblin', diversifyin', heck of a (insert major here)!

Ramblin' Wreck

I'm a safe, reliable, and fuel efficient means of transportation from Georgia Tech and a fully competent engineer,
A competent, competent, competent, competent, competent engineer,
Like all the content members of a decent society I drink my dietary supplements clear.
I'm a safe, reliable, and fuel efficient means of transportation from Georgia Tech and a fully competent engineer.

Oh if I had the national average 2.4 children, I'd dress them in White and Gold,
I'd put them on the campus on a HOPE scholarship to sit in the West Stands and passively cheer the brave and bold.
But if I had a stupid kid of any gender, I tell ya what they'd do,
They would go to Athens, Georgia like all the other dumb kids do!

Oh I wish I had a Smoothie Machine and fruit three thousand pounds,
A massive receptacle to put it in and a turbo charged motor to stir it round,
I'd serve nutritious beverages to all health conscious citizens
(regardless of gender, nationality, or sexual preference) who come from far and near,
I'm a stable, moral, competent engineer! Hey!

DaDaDaDaDaDaDaDaDaDaDAH!

Go Jackets!! But lets keep each player's personal safety in our nondenominational prayers too!
