The Adam Song

Adam was the first man,
To wear a Sig Pi pin,
Noah was the second,
We had to let him in,
Moses was the third one,
We had a lot of fun,
When Julius Caesar came around
We pledged the son of a gun.

The S stands for Sigma,
The P stands for P-I, pi.
The S stands for Sigma,
The P stands for P-I, pi.
And if you look around you,
Or gaze into the sky,
You will see that naught is written
But the name of Sigma Pi

He rambled down to U of D
He thought he'd join a frat
He thought he'd take a look around
To see where he was at;
Because he was a fellow
We knew he'd be all right
The colors that he wore next day
Were lavender and white.

He rambled down to Hades
To see the poor souls
He saw a bunch of Theta Xi's
A roasting on the coals
For the TKE's and Theta Tau's
The sizzle had begun
While SIGMA PI's in velvet chairs
Were watching all the fun.

CHORUS:
Then in came old beelzebub
Of hell he was the king;
And all the little imps came in
And they began to sing;
They saw the gang give him the grip
And then they heard the cry
That he's a charter member
And a damn good Sigma Pi.

He rambled up to heaven
To see who all was there
He found a bunch a-hanging 'round
The foot of the Golden Stairs.
Some were smoking cigarettes,
They all were feeling high,
They all were damn good friends of his,
They all were Sigma Pi's.

CHORUS:
Now don't be disconcerted
If you miss the narrow path.
Or if you flunk your morals
like you used to flunk your math.
And don't be disconcerted
If you hear the funeral bell
For we've a strong alumni
In the very depths of hell.
