It Had to be U
The Garrens Comedy Troupe:
"It Had to be U"
by Eric D. Snider, Gina James, Lisa Valentine Clark
Originally performed by The Garrens Comedy Troupe on December 31, 1969
(To the tune of "It Had to Be You.")
As a child I dreamed that someday
When the time came, I'd go away
That's what I'd do, Where I'd go.
But then the time came that I had to apply
Show my merits off to the Y
And when they saw all of my flaws,
They said, NO!
It had to be the U, and not BYU
I had to admit that I couldn't quit a habit or two
And my GPA was less than okay
My transcripts I tried, wanted to hide, my 1.2
All others I've tried have also denied.
Even UVSC didn't want me, I was overqualified.
The Y told me no, the U they were thrilled.
With all of my faults, they took me still.
It had to be the U,
The Devil Red U
It had to be the U.
