"Alumni Blues" as written by and Trey Anastasio....
Woke up this morning and I had those Walking Blues (x2)

I wasn't walkin' nowhere 'cause I didn't have no floor!

Staring over the edge of the bed

My old lady lying next to me, I started to cry (x2)

She said "I'm gonna take this diploma,

I'm gonna slice you in the eye!"

Well I'm alright (he's alright) (x9)

'cause I got a degree!

Escaping through my window

There's a policeman on the lawn outside my home (x2)

I opened my mouth to scream but my throat was full of foam

So I'm sittin' in this cell

My fortune dwindled to a thimble full of filth (x2)

I may spend the rest of my life in jail but at least it's got a floor!
