Chapter Cheer

The chapter cheer has only been written down twice, both times by the founding fathers of then Dr. Seuss AZA #195, and will continue to be passed down orally at AITs, from chapter member to chapter member.

 

Up You Men

Up, you men,
And sing to AZA
Time will pass,
And we'll be on our way. 


As the years go by,
There will be
Happiest of memories.
Stand, and then,
We'll sing this song again,
All you loyal men.
Sing the praises of
our Order,
Sing up, you men of AZA. 


Brothers we'll be,
As we share our cares each day.
Happy and free,
Though the years go on their way.
Starting anew,
Face to Face with destiny.
Hearts beating true,
For the Friends and loves to be.

So, up, you men,

And sing to AZA

Time will pass,

And we'll be on our way. 

 

For Tomorrow and Today

(Dedicated to Sam Beber at Silver Anniversary Convention)

For tomorrow and today
We believe in the AZA
And with voices loud,
We say we're proud,
of the AZ-Aleph Zadik Aleph,
We all know that Jewish life
Had its share of trouble and strife
So we'll never cease
To work for peace,
in the AZ-Aleph Zadik Aleph,
 

Brotherly Love and Charity
We cherish and promote.
Harmony and Democracy,
To these our lives we'll devote.
B'nai B'rith we'll never stray,
Jewish youth is on its way:
And it all began
With the Beber plan For
the AZ-Aleph Zadik Aleph

 

​World of AZA

In the time

Of AZA

There lived a Jewish boy

Named Mordechai

He was young

And insecure

He spent his Saturdays

Killing flies

 

But there was

This guy at school

Who treated Mordechai

With sympathy

And he told

Him of a place

He could be anything

He wished to be

 

We all live in the world of AZA, “A”!

The world of AZA, “Z”!

The world of AZA, “A”!

(repeat x2)

 

At his first

Event that night

He saw fraternity

He saw the light

He mailed in

His check the next day

Badadadabopbadopbadopbadadada *

 

We all live in the world of AZA, “A”!

The world of AZA, “Z”!

The world of AZA, “A”!

(repeat x2)

 

Mordechai

is now a man

And his life

No longer bland

And he lives

His every day

With the power

Of AZA


We all live in the world of AZA, “A”!

The world of AZA, “Z”!

The world of AZA, “A”! **
