Tune: Auld Lang Syne

Tune: Auld Lang Syne

Should auld Aquinas be forgot And never called to Mind 'Tho we should be as Saukez (sour as) Hell

Oh would Duns Scotus mind?

Or dear old Wittgenstein my dear

Or dear old Wittgenstein my dear

Who'll quaff a cup of hemlock here o dear old Wittgenstein.

Oh some have other Fichte (fish to) fry

A' sizzling on their Hobbes Leviathan with salt and chips To feed the Milling mobs.

Or dear old, etc.

Or others with a Plato Greens Peck/Ham or yet scoff Bacon Pythagoras is Schelling Beans Unless I am mistaken.

And poor old Wittgenstein my dear

And poor old Wittgenstein Is sauce for William Of Cock/Ham

Is poor old Wittgenstein

Oh our Epistomology

Is orthodox of course

While Critical Philosophy Puts Des Cartes before de horse.

The same with Wiggenstein my dear

The same with Wittgenstein my dear

They'll never Tracate—US my dear

Descartes or Wittgenstein So raise your voices Contra Gents'

Of non-Scholastic Mind Sing Summa is i'cumen in And tow Des Cartes behind!!

And read your Augustine my dear

As every Hipp-O-pot-o-must Oh read your Augustine! ! !

P. AE. H.
