[Chorus: ]
Well, there's a big ball in Boston, big ball in town
Big ball in Boston, I'm gonna get on down
The birthplace of our nation is Boston, so they say
They try to keep it as it was 
But it's changing ev'ry day

[Chorus: ]

The Red Coats, they were comin', their cloth was made of tweed
Some say their shirts were button down (The tradition is Ivy League)
[Chorus: ]

We met a chap from Harvard, very slim and pale
The last time that we saw him he was dancing with a cat from Yale

[Chorus: ]

And just a mile from Harvard's ,a campus you should see
M-i-t-k-e-why M-o-you-s-e

[Chorus: ]

The folks who come from Boston are said to be quite dated
So whadda ya have to say, my friend?
Well, uh, Bobby and Teddy and I made it

[Chorus: ]
