It's not many schools that can boast a beer drinking song as a part of their childhood memories. I remember singing this at St. Albert when I went there from 1953 (a year after it opened til I graduated in 1961. This song was passed down from kid to kid on the playground in true oral tradition. It's a take off of the old Notre Dame drinking song.


Give a cheer, give a cheer

For the boys who brew the beer

In the cellars of Albert the Great.

They are brave they are bold

For the whiskey they can hold

In the cellars of Albert the Great


For it's run, run, run

I think I hear a nun

Grab all the bottles and run

If a sister should appear

Say, "Sister, have a beer!


In the cellar of Albert the Great.
