To Hell With Academic Freedom, song lyrics

Song: To Hell With Academic Freedom
Lyrics: Unknown

Music: to the tune of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic"
Year: 1964 or before
Genre: Traditional
Country: USA


Mine eyes have seen the failure of
    the Student Bill of Rights,
They have trampled out its glories
    with contractual delights,
They have plunged us into darkness
    never more to see the light,
As reaction marches on.

(CHORUS:)
To hell with Academic Freedom,
To hell with Academic Freedom,
To hell with Academic Freedom,
As reaction marches on.
