55 Fouls at the Line



  • 55 FOULS AT THE LINE

    (sung to the tune of 55 DAYS AT PEKING)

    Theme from the film “55 Days At Peking” (1963)

    (Dimitri Tiomkin / Paul Francis Webster)

    Bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom

    Bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom

    Bom-bom, bom-bom-bom

    Bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom

    The year was Twenty-Sixteen

    T’is worth remembering

    The men who lived through

    Fifty-five days at the Line

    T’was called the Baylor Castration

    A wack-o, Waco war

    Waged by all Jayhawk nations

    And the KU Basketball Corps

    The t-shirts of Blue and Crimson

    They cloaked the racks from dorms and sororities

    The intoxicates and the sober

    The lustful and the tease

    Then came the sound from scoreboards

    The rolling sounds of fury

    And the lane and the foul line

    Were briefly as empty as a tomb

    Bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom

    Bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom

    Bom-bom, bom-bom-bom

    Bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom

    Then the referee of the foul fest

    Gave the signal to begin

    Let the players on both teams

    Be fouled up in the gym

    They stormed the rim without inhibition

    We blocked and altered like hell

    And they came in Nike blouses

    Screaming “World Wide Wes” as they fell

    The whistles that so long were swallowed

    Were hucked up to tweet and sing

    And through the ages

    You will hear them echoing

    Bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom

    Bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom

    Bom-bom, bom-bom-bom

    Fifty-five fouls at the Line

    Bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom

    Bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom

    Bom-bom, bom-bom-bom

    Fifty-five fouls at the line

    Bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom

    Bom-bom-bom…FADE
