Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Special Extravaganza Programme Issue [1953]



Join us in our Marsqueraid
Won't you come on and join us
And sing in the chorus
Enjoy yourselves in our own Marsqueraid.

Oh what a night, what a delight to be shared
Come and join us in our Marsqueraid
Love is the theme its supreme. We've prepared
You a tale of two men and a maid
The men in this story you know
As the two beaux Sid and Walter
And they both have but one aim
To win the name get her to the altar
Love is contrary, a merry-go-round
And with lots of surprises in store
And its no joke when a bloke comes around
Whom they haven't considered before.
And though its not's very nice
Somehow they fail to entice her away from him
She was a maid, tricks she played them in our Masqueraid.

This tale that we tell is an old one
It's one that has gone on for years
In truth it's a quite often told one
But we hope we won't bore you to tears
At first they've success with their wooing
But who's, going to win they can't say
And just as it seems something's doing
Then another comes by
And she finds he's a guy whose got influence, and affluence
He calls her honey, it's funny, but she loves his money and
Oh what a night, what delight to be shared
Come and join us in our Marsqueraid.
