I have swiped the following St. Cloud Normal School chant from the Stearns History Museum’s newsletter, Crossings, Vol. 35, No. 4, July 2009:

Ann-a-bee-bow.

Ann-a-bee-bow.

Ann-a-bee-bow bye-bow-bum.

Boom – get a rat trap,

Bigger than a cat trap.

Boom – get a cat trap,

Bigger than a rat trap.

Cannon ball, cannon ball.

Zip-boom-baw.

St. Cloud Normal

Minn-e-so-ta.

What I like about this is the musicality that has been achieved merely by choosing the proper words and arranging them just so.
