Description

Stein Song
- words by Lincoln Colcord, music by Adelbert Sprague and E. A. Fenstad
- as recorded by Rudy Vallee and His Connecticut Yankees in 1930
- written in 1904 by two college freshmen who entered it in a song competition
  in a campus minstrel show. The melody, partially based on a German march
  by E. A. Fenstad called "Opie", was composed by Adelbert Sprague, who became
  a professor of music at the University of Maine. The words were written by
  his roommate, Lincoln Colcord, who was later a well-known author of sea stories.
  Rudy Vallee spent a year at the University of Maine (1921-22) before transferring
  to Yale. He recorded "Stein Song" in 1930.

Oh, fill the steins to dear old Maine
Shout till the rafters ring
Stand and drink a toast once again
Let every loyal Maine man sing
Then drink to all the happy hours
Drink to the careless days
Drink to Maine, our alma mater
The college of our hearts always

To the trees, to the sky, to the Spring and its glorious happiness
To the youth, to the fire, to the light that is moving and calling us
To the gods, to the fate, to the rulers of men and their destinies
To the lips, to the eyes, to the girls who will love us someday

Oh, fill the steins to dear old Maine
Shout till the rafters ring
Stand and drink a toast once again
Let every loyal Maine man sing
Then drink to all the happy hours
Drink to the careless days
Drink to Maine, our alma mater
The college of our hearts always

To the trees, to the sky, to the Spring and its glorious happiness
To the youth, to the fire, to the light that is moving and calling us
To the gods, to the fate, to the rulers of men and their destinies
To the lips, to the eyes, to the girls who will love us someday

Oh, fill the steins to dear old Maine
Shout till the rafters ring
Stand and drink a toast once again
Let every loyal Maine man sing
Then drink to all the happy hours
Drink to the careless days
Drink to Maine, our alma mater
The college of our hearts always
