Songs of Psi Upsilon
Two quotes are included in every printed Psi U Songbook, since the first in 1849. First, a quote from William Shakespere’s “The Merchant of Venice (and attributed to just “Shak.”) and the second from the Honorable Francis M. Finch, Beta ’49 (Yale) who was largely responsible for many of the original Psi U Songs, including “The Smoking Song” below.
The man that hath no music in himself,
Nor is not moved with concord of sweet Sounds
Is fit for Treason, Strategems, and Spoils.
Until the sands of life are run,
We’ll sing to thee, PSI UPSILON.
