Recently discovered within the depths of the paint closet are songs of Fourth East's hallowed cocoa tradition. The following sampling was written circa 1990 by Cocoa Chairs: (ROTC) Amy Schneider, (Alto) Amy Martin, and (Amy-) Amy Lister.

Are You Tooling?

To the tune of "Frere Jacques"

Are you tooling? Are you tooling?
Fourth East! Fourth East!
Cocoa girls are calling. Cocoa girls are calling.
To the lounge! To the lounge!

Don't Stay in Your Dorm Room

Written by ROTC Amy to the tune of "Don't Stand So Close to Me" by the Police

Some students, they're tooling
All night at MIT
The clock strike eleven
Cocoa time on 4E

They walk in the lounge
Spoon hot cocoa mix
Combine it with water
Get their chocolate fix

Don't stay in your dorm room
Don't stay in your doom room

The students, they're drinking
They're talking really loud
They're punting their schoolwork
To books they won't be found

Calculus and physics
Them they really hate
But know that they need them
So they can graduate

Don't stay in your dorm room
Don't stay in your dorm room

Every night at eleven
You'll find them in the lounge
Drinking Carnation Cocoa
Consuming it by the pound

Eleven at 4 East
Don't even try to tool
'Cause it's the only time
You're not engrossed in school

Don't stay in your dorm room
Don't stay in your dorm room

Amazing Cocoa

Written by Alto Amy to the tune of "Amazing Grace"

Amazing cocoa
How sweet the taste
That warmed a wretch like me
I once was alone
But now I'm with friends
Was tooling
Am now punting

Amazing cocoa
How rich the smell
That dragged me from my room
I once drank tea
But now I touch it not
'Tis cocoa
Which I consume

Amazing cocoa
How kind the sound
Of boiling hot Boston water
It once was yellow
But we make it brown
To drown
The repulsive odor

Cocoa

To the tune of "Money" by Pink Floyd

Cocoa, the get away
Get a good mug and good spoon and you're O.K.
Cocoa, it's a gas
Grab that mix with your spoon and drink your stash
Carnation cocoa mix, with marshmallows or not
Think I'll punt a problem set

Cocoa, drink it up
I'm alright, Jack, keep your lips off of my cup
Cocoa, take a sip
Don't give me that too much work bullshit
Stop your work, come out, it won't take long
C'mon, I even wrote my first cocoa song

Cocoa, it's a crime
Share it, fairly, but don't take any of mine
Cocoa, so they say
Is the root of all punting today
But if you have to analyze it, no surprisin'
The slugs are giving it away, away...

Coming 'Round With Cocoa

Written by Amy-Amy to the tune of "She'll Be Coming 'Round the Mountain"

We'll be coming 'round with cocoa when we call
We'll be toting mugs and spoons when we call
The slugs'll stop their tooling when we call
They will gather in the lounge when we call
We will scoop and pour and stir when we call
We will sip Carnation Cocoa when we call

Drink (In the 4th East Lounge)

Written by ROTC Amy to the tune of "Pride (In the Name of Love)" by U2

One slug come to the 4th East Lounge
One slug to get a drink
One slug armed wit a mug and spoon
One slug cocoa drinks

Chorus:
In the 4th East Lounge
Cocoa! In the 4th East Lounge
In the 4th East Lounge
Cocoa! In the 4th East Lounge

One slug stuck on a problem set
One slug he can't tool
One slug filled with an empty mind
One slug betrayed by his wits

Chorus

Every night at eleven, a call rings out in the 4th East Hell
Time at last
They're calling you
Leave tooling in your room

Chorus

O-Say-Can-U-C

Written by Amy-Amy to the tune of "The Star-Spangled Banner"

Oh say can you see at the end of the hall
It's Amy (all three!) and it's cocoa we're call-ing

Though we sing out of tune
And we're there none too soon
We call for cocoa
So it's time to stop tool-ing

Everyone gather 'round, and come into the lounge
You can drink with a smile, 'cause you're punting with style!

Oh say can you hear us, we scream and we squeak
(squeak! squeak! squeak!)
From the land of the nerds and the home of the geeks!

Carnation Cocoa

Written by ROTC Amy to the tune of "The Locomotion"

Ev'rybody's coming to the 4th East Lounge now
Come on baby, drink Carnation Cocoa
We know you'll get to like it if you give it a chance now
Come on baby drink Carnation Cocoa
A little Amy said I can just come and see
It's easier than tooling for 18.03

So come on come on drink Carnation Cocoa with me
You gotta fill your mug now, come on 4th East, drink up, ooh drink up, well we know you got a cup...
Now that you like cocoa let's raise our mugs now
Come on baby drink Carnation Cocoa
Chug it chug it chug it like a can of beer now
Come on baby drink Carnation Cocoa
Drink it nice and easy, now don't burn your mouth
A little bit of water and a lot of cocoa
So come on come on drink Carnation Cocoa with me

Carnation Cocoa
Come on, come on
Carnation Cocoa

Time for Cocoa

Written by ROTC Amy to the tune of "She Loves You" by the Beatles

Oh, all you do is tool
Been in your room since noon
Don't be such a nerd
Just grab your cup and spoon
It's time for cocoa
And you know that can't be bad
It's time for cocoa
And you know you should be glad

It's cocoa, yeah, yeah, yeah
It's cocoa, yeah, yeah, yeah
If you tool through this, you'll know you've gone real mad

We know it's up to you
Riveted to your chair
Don't always have to tool
Punt it, we don't care
It's time for cocoa
And you know that can't be bad
It's time for cocoa
And you know you should be glad

Oh 4E

Written by Alto Amy to the tune of "Oh Susanna"

Oh, I tooled so hard, I broke my head
The problem set was done
I have not been to class this week
But I'm still having fun

Chorus:
Oh, Fourth Easters
Oh, don't you cry for me
For I'm gonna have some cocoa now
And that is all I need

Oh, the weather was so nice today
I couldn't go to class
I know I have three tests this week
Oh, what a pain in the...butt

Chorus

Oh, I failed my test--I know I did
But now it's cocoa time
So I'm heading for the lounge right now
And happiness is mine

Chorus

Somethin' in the Way it Soothes

Written by ? Amy to the tune of "Something in the Way She Moves" by James Taylor

There's somethin' in the way it soothes
The way it smells, or how it's stirred
That helps me leave this toolin' hell behind
When I'm feelin' down and blue
Troubled by my problem sets
It never fails to help relieve my mind

Chorus:
And I feel fine at the time 4E Cocoa's called
(and) 4E Cocoa's called
At 11:00
If I'm toolin' like a fool and 4E Cocoa's called
4E Cocoa's called
It's 11:00, the water's hot

Every now and then the things I'm learnin' lose their meaning
And I find my grades careening to depths that I can't picture in my mind
But then at 11:00 I hear those voices callin'
And it suddenly reminds me
Of the happiness and good times on 4 East
And I say "You just got to know that:"

It isn't what was due today
Or how we're failed or sleep we've missed
We realize that we all do just the same
I'd like someday to graduate
It doesn't much matter 'bout my grades
I say they're mostly just to stress me out

Chorus

Like a Spoon in a Cup of Cocoa

Written by Amy-Amy to the tune of "A Spoon Full of Sugar" from Mary Poppins

When you're sitting
And dreading class
When school is on your mind
We will rescue you

We're on your side
Oh when classes start
And time just can't be found

Like a spoon in a cup of cocoa
We will cheer you up
Like a spoon in a cup of cocoa
We will cheer you up

When you're tooling tough
When you're on the go
When morning comes too soon
We will talk to you
We'll take the time
Oh, when cocoa comes
'Cause friends are all around

Like a spoon in a cup of cocoa
We will take the time
Lie a spoon in a cup of cocoa
We will take the time

Come on to the lounge
Come on out
No need to fear the term
Leave your troubles in your room

Oh---
When you need a friend
4E is right behind you
Like a spoon in a cup of cocoa
We will ease your mind
Like a spoon in a cup of cocoa
We will ease your mind!

Drinking in the Lounge

Written by ROTC Amy to the tune of "Leaving on a Jet Plane" by John Denver

Oh my set is due
I'm ready to cry
My brain is glue - I'm starting to snore
I hate to punt again, my grades will fall
But the Amy's calling
The clock bell dongs
Water's boiling
They're singing their song
Already I'm so burned out
I could die

Chorus:
So grab mug and get your spoon
Life is such a long cartoon
I'm drinking in the 4E lou-ounge
I don't know when I will tool again
Oh, slugs, I love to punt

There's so many times I've played around
So many times where punts abound
I tell you now I don't know a thing
Every course I take, I do so bad
Every drink I take, I feel so glad
When I flunk out, mom will be so mad

Chorus

Now the time has come to too-ool
One more shot at this schoo-ool
Don't close your eyes, gotta stay awake
Dream about the days to come
When I won't have to tool no more
About the time I'll make so

Chorus

My Favorite Things

Written by ROTC Amy to the tune of "My Favorite Things" from The Sound of Music

Burgers and french fries and thick frappes at Pritchett
Physics with Walter, oh I never miss it
Long four day weekends and class brass rat rings
These are a few of my favorite things

Boiling hot water and brown cocoa powder
Pouring and spooning and stirring with power
Cocoa at night with my friends on 4th East
These are a few of my favorite things

Trips into Boston and rides on the T
Lectures and movies shown by LSC
Great refridge drops off the top of EC
These are a few of my favorite things

When I'm tooling, when I'm tired
When I'm feeling bad
I simply remember our nightly cocoa
And then I don't feel so bad
