Keeping promises

Who knew that that the phenomenon of taking "virginity" pledges about saving sexual activity for later wasn't exactly recent?

We're saving ourselves for Yale. (scroll down, arrow at bottom of page).

As they downed their first cafe
The girls were heard to softly say:

"Oh, we have had our chances for overnight romances
with a Harvard and a Dartmouth male
And though we've had a bunch in, oh from Princeton Junction,
We're saving ourselves for Yale

...
And though we've all had squeezes
From lots of Ph. D.ses
We're saving ourselves for Yale




Hat tip to The Kitchen Cabinet.

That's "Pousse-café"!

I first heard this song in Wendy Wasserstein's "Uncommon Women and Others" and have been trying to find the lyrics online.
