The Twelve Days of Karplus

(to the tune of “The Twelve Days of Christmas”)

 (This is a song I wrote for Andy Karplus, our new Departent Head)

 

On the first day of fall term, the new Head had to face

The news that the copier broke

 

By the second day of fall term, the new Head had to face

Two exams to write

And the news that the copier broke

 

By the third day of fall term, the new Head had to face

Three new grants

Two exams to write

And the news that the copier broke

 

By the fourth day of fall term, the new Head had to face

Four long reviews

Three new grants

Two exams to write

And the news that the copier broke

 

By the fifth day of fall term, the new Head had to face

Five Sem-i-nars

Four long reviews

Three new grants

Two exams to write

And the news that the copier broke

 

By the sixth day of fall term, the new Head had to face

Six Monday meetings

Five Sem-i-nars

Four long reviews

Three new grants

Two exams to write

And the news that the copier broke

 

By the seventh day of fall term, the new Head had to face

Seven students singing

Six Monday meetings

Five Sem-i-nars

Four long reviews

Three new grants

Two exams to write

And the news that the copier broke

 

By the eighth day of fall term, the new Head had to face

Eight Deans a Droning

Seven students singing

Six Monday meetings

Five Sem-i-nars

Four long reviews

Three new grants

Two exams to write

And the news that the copier broke

 

By the ninth day of fall term, the new Head had to face

Nine classroom crises

Eight Deans a Droning

Seven students singing

Six Monday meetings

Five Sem-i-nars

Four long reviews

Three new grants

Two exams to write

And the news that the copier broke

 

By the tenth day of fall term, the new Head had to face

Ten peeved professors

Nine classroom crises

Eight Deans a Droning

Seven students singing

Six Monday meetings

Five Sem-i-nars

Four long reviews

Three new grants

Two exams to write

And the news that the copier broke

 

By the eleventh day of fall term, the new Head had to face

Eleven deadlines daunting

Ten peeved professors

Nine classroom crises

Eight Deans a Droning

Seven students singing

Six Monday meetings

Five Sem-i-nars

Four long reviews

Three new grants

Two exams to write

And the news that the copier broke

 

By the twelfth day of fall term, the new Head had to face

Twelve damned decisions

Eleven deadlines daunting

Ten peeved professors

Nine classroom crises

Eight Deans a Droning

Seven students singing

Six Monday meetings

Five Sem-i-nars

Four long reviews

Three new grants

Two exams to write

And the news that the copier broke
