Harvard Business School

Lyrics by Jade Enns

To the tune of "Lady Marmalade" from Moulin Rouge 

ENSEMBLE

Where’s all my tech mistas?

Gimme that cash flow, fin sistas

Consulting mistas, PE sistas, founder mistas, engineer sistas

Daddy mistas, MomBA sistas, jointee mistas, veteran sistas

Few years on the job now time for business school

Which one is the place for me?

I want Ivy, ranked three

but confidence of a rank one! Uh-huh

Can’t have just any business school

Give me a name that turns heads

I’ll try to feign humility

Only Harvard Business School

(What-what, what-what)

Ooh, oh 

Welcome to Harvard Business School, the school

Welcome to Harvard Business School

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

We are your ECs so pay attention please

This is the last you’ll hear from us

Got some things to know, do take notes, yeah

My life will peak at business school

Can’t wait for these next two years (ooh, yeah, yeah)

Instagram won’t know what hit them

Tag @HarvardHBS!

Welcome to Harvard Business School, our school

(Our school, what, what, what) 

Welcome to Harvard Business School

Oooh

Yeah, yeah, uh

We come through up in Allston, on weekends we jet

Better learn to read a case while doing planks

Out here deficit spendin’, helps if you are sponsored

I’m sayin’, “Why spend mine when I can spend yours?”

Long distance? Quit bragging ‘bout loyalty

This a 2 year playground for foreign fantasies

Political correctness, millennial wokeness

As if you don’t rate all your profs for hotness

Don’t get me wrong RC’s, this is the place of your dreams

Rub shoulders with case protagonists

Mom’s in class, say one word and everyone claps

If you wanna party every week night

Last chance to be cool, right?

Come to Harvard Business School

 

One more time, c’mon now

Oh Harvard

Harvard Business School

Oh Harvard

Hey, hey, hey!

 

Home of legends since 1908

A place like this must have defense

Secret agency of spies 

N (what?), I (what?), 6

We said too much, just enjoy RC

Friendships, romance, skimmed cases

Culminates with the HBS Show

 

Now on Zoom 

COVID’s why you haven’t seen us

But despite that, we’re still here

We can’t wait for you to see it

This is the HBS Show 

Welcome to Harvard Business School, the school

We are at Harvard Business School

Welcome to Harvard Business School, be cool

Welcome to Harvard Business School

 

Case method (hey, oh) 

Art (absurd campus art) 

Cold calls (well, um, uh-uh, uh-uh, uh-uh, uh-uh)   

Feedback (keep that to yourself) 

Those Baker Scholars (try hards) 

Section norms (oh) 

Only 2 short years 

This is Harvard Business School 

Ooh, ooh, yes-ah

FOR THIS SCHOOL I WOULD DO ANYTHING

Lyrics by Mimi Sheng 

To the tune of "I Just Can't Wait To Be King" from The Lion King

 

  

JAN

This school is my one pride and joy 

So enemies beware 

 

ENSEMBLE

Well, he will defend us to the end 

With utmost love and care 

 

JAN

I’m gonna stop this villainy 

With help from NI6 

I’ve been here over twenty years 

There’s nothing we can’t fix 

 

ENSEMBLE

JAN

For this school, I’d do, anything

JAN

Whenever the donors call 

I will give this school my all 

 

ENSEMBLE

We’re gonna need bigger budgets to help us with this fight 

 

JAN

SA happy hours are letting our finances get tight 

 

ENSEMBLE

Those FGI glasses and destress cafe

Aren’t cheap 

No more interest, No more tuition

There is another way 

Imagine all the benefits Jan will bring

 

JAN

For this school I’d do anything 

 

Everybody look here

I will protect the school 

Everybody listen up 

This is our crown jewel 

 

ENSEMBLE

NI6!

So let’s all come together and sing 

No matter what the future may bring 

We are all together one big team 

For this school, we would do anything! 

For this school, we would do anything! 

For this school, we would do anything!

PART OF TECH WORLD

Lyrics by Sara Figel

To the tune of "Part of your World" from The Little Mermaid

Q

Look at my stuff

Isn’t it neat?

Wouldn’t you say your iphone’s obsolete?

Wouldn’t you say I’m a whiz

Who beta-tests everything?

Look at this app

Better than Slack

It does a cool thing you can’t do on Mac

Look at my gear here you’d think

Sure, she’s worth google-ing

I’ve got coders and pitch decks a-ready

MIT grads with botnets galore

You want Tailgate tix?

They hacked plenty!

But who cares?

No big deal

I want more 

 

I want to be where the founders are

I wanna see, wanna see disruption

Poking around on that- what do you call it?

Oh - Reddit!

 

Prototypin’, I won’t get too far

Cash is required for funding, scaling,

Earning a place with those - what’s that word again?

Bros

There where they code, there where they pitch

Where IPOs make you super rich

Start-ups for me - wish I could be

Part of Tech World

 

What would I give if I could live in Silicon Valley?

What would they pay to fund Series A and all the rest

Bet’cha out west, they’d acquiesce 

They would invest in my best gadgets

Keto Diet, sure I’ll try it.

Options to vest

 

Yes ready to show how my users will grow

Meet with VCs and then go to market 

What’s a MySpace and why does it - what’s the word?

Fail?

When can I scale?

When will I see, break even cash flow earned in year three?

Bootcamp taught me

That I can be

Part of Tech World

HARD SCRIBE LIFE

Lyrics by Cooper Williams

To the tune of "Hard Knock Life" from Annie

 
ENSEMBLE

It’s a hard scribe life, for us

It’s a hard scribe life, for us

Steada talkin

We just sit

Steada smilin

We type your shit

It’s a hard scribe life

 

Now we’ve heard it all, you know

You raise your hands and then you go

“Piggy backin’ ”

Not again

“Find synergies”

What does that mean?

It’s a hard scribe life

Don’t it feel like they never read the cases

But still they’re so sure that they’re always right

You want us all to know you worked at Goldman

Most of the time I don’t know what to type

I’m only here while I finish up my masters

I’m just here cuz I thought I’d learn some things

They all pretend to understand the frameworks

Literally no one knows what all these mean!!

Ooh!!!

Systems of control 

The Fraud Triangle 

All four of the P’s

And all five of the C’s

Out of class we’re never seen

We say hi

You say

“Who’s she?”

Think about the jobs we’re in

We’re why you got a 2 in FIN

It’s a hard scribe life

“I just want to zoom out here, keep perspective and look at the bigger picture”

There’s the girl who thinks she’s woke

And the girl who’s EQ broke

And the crazy rich asian 

Such valuable comments students! 

Scribes, let’s show these students what talents we’ve got!

It’s a hard scribe life for us

It’s a hard scribe life for us

We’re only here in this weird world

 

Cuz professors won’t call on girls

It’s a hard scribe life

It’s a hard scribe life

It’s a hard scribe life

KIND AND FORTUNATE SOULS

Lyrics by Jake Tauscher

To the tune of "Poor Unfortunate Souls" from The Little Mermaid

MOONRAKER

In the past, this place was beautifully nasty

It was cut-throat, profit-focused, and just mean.

But you’ll find that nowadays,

They’ve mended all their ways,

Refocused, added classes, changed the dean.

"Nitin..."

 

They introduced LCA, and made Field teach group work,

You reflect on your wild and precious lives.

In admissions, no mistakes,

Just make one, for God’s sake!

Someone arrogant, or greedy, to cause strife

 

Why are there

Kind and fortunate souls!

So smart, so nice.

This one founds a social venture,

That one values diverse cultures.

Can I corrupt them?

I’m unsure.

 

These kind and fortunate souls!

So sad, yet true.

This school’s lost its bite and flair,

Where can young villains be taught?

Can I fix it?

I hope so.

 

Now I must reserve some ire,

For the worst kind of satire.

HBS Show, a joke at who’s expense? Our own!

No self-respecting sinner

Should be a joke, but it’s proper

for those kind and fortunate souls.
 

ODDJOB

Your rhymed rant is as structured as a startup

I disagree, respectfully of course.

Next you will be telling me you walked uphill both ways to class

But okay boomer, I won’t argue what you say

 

Come on, I am here to get a 2, not change your plan.

Second years avoid all work when they can

But they dote and swoon and fawn

On a schedule like Wharton’s

My Fridays off means weekends on St Johns

 

Let’s get those kind and fortunate souls!

Go ahead

Tell me how

I’m a very busy EC and I haven’t got all day

I won’t work hard

That I vow!

 

MOONRAKER & ODDJOB

Those kind and fortunate souls!

It’s sad, but true...

 

MOONRAKER

If we want to make a change, my boy

We have to fix this school!

Make it mean and make it cruel

So all the students sell their souls

RCs,ECs, I’ll corrupt them all

The Doc is on a roll!

Those kind and fortunate souls!

RICH KID

Lyrics by Cooper Williams

To the tune of "If I Were a Rich Man" from Fiddler on the Roof and "Rich Girl" by Gwen Stefani

 

MONEYPENNY 

Because I am a rich kid 

Yubby dibby dibby dibby dibby dibby dibby dum

I've failed up harder than the WeWork CEO

Thanks to good old daddy-o

I’ve never had to work hard,

Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum.

Because daddy’s daddy was so rich

Daidle deedle daidle daidle man

 

We built a great big mall with shops by the dozen

Right in the middle of the town,

I guess some people used to call it their home,

Yes we help you - we do

we “create value through corporate restructuring”

It sounds much better than mass firing

 

We put in guest bedrooms and Whole Foods and froyo and

Gwyneth Paltrow’s yoga studio

Basic bitches meditating peacefully

And each loud

*namaste* *chakra?* *sooo busy*

Rings like efficient allocations

And our EPS ticks up so nicely 

Because I am a rich kid

Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na

See I don’t know a thing about the world

But I should be running it

 

I’ll never have to work hard, use a debit card

My cash flow will never ever end

I don’t know what a “credit score” is

Because I am a rich rich kid

 

All my daddy’s money

Is a mystery

That’s why you have a class 

Demystifying me

If I’m investigated

By the SEC

I’ll be just fine cuz my daddy will be there for me

 

All the riches baby, gave me everything

All the riches baby, paid for all my nannies

All the riches baby, daddy never hugged me

 

But I’m just fine baby

Because I can pay for good, therapy

 

Because I am a rich kid

Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na

I just found out what a dormitory is

When we bought a real estate biz

No man could test me, impress me

Not another Kushner legacy

I help my dad spend all his money

Then call myself a VC

I tried hard and got in, to Harvard (uh uh)

All cuz of me

And not cuz, dad’s a trustee

I sit in these classes, talk protagonists (yeah)

Come cold call me baby,

They’re all friends of the family

 

I’ll never have to work hard

Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na

My only fear’s a takeover bid

Because I am a rich rich kid

You know I like to party, take a shot

My bar tab will never ever end

Cuz I have all the money in the land

Hotter than a K pop band

 

Na-na-na-na-na-na

Na-na-na-na-na-na

Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na

Na-na-na-na-na-na

Na-na-na-na-na-na

Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na

Na-na-na-na-na-na

Na-na-na-na-na-na

Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na

 

LA VIDA HARVARD

Lyrics by Mimi Sheng

To the tune of "Livin La Vida Loca" by Ricky Martin

ENSEMBLE

We’re in line waiting for that

Overpriced alcohol 

I hope I will not fall flat

If I get that damn cold call 

Going out might’ve been rash

Since it’s Tuesday night

But I spoke in last class 

So I should be alright 

After all this is a two year vacation so to speak 

Plus, I’m still learning tons,
look at my DCF technique

Though in FIN I got a three 

Here at HBS

We’re livin' la vida loca

Only cases and few tests

Livin' la vida loca

We’re still learning so much 

Like Kaizen from Toyota

Wells Fargo taught us 

It’s bad to game sales quotas (Come on!)

Can’t wait to get that diploma (Come on!)

After livin’ la vida loca 

Woke up in my Gatsby clothes

How did I end up here 

Shouldn’t have challenged those PE bros

Flip cup equals too much beer

I have a huge hangover, and I really feel like hell 

I can just kiss my chances of Baker Scholar farewell 

I just have ISDL! (Come on!)

Here at HBS

We’re livin' la vida loca

Only cases and few tests

Livin' la vida loca

Paired up and learning to

Negotiate in the ZOPA (Come on!)

Until my next trek

I’m going to Angola (Come on!)

Can’t wait to get that diploma (Come on!)

After livin’ la vida loca 

It’s been weeks since I’ve called home and talked to my mom and dad 

Eating tons of McDelivery and I haven’t gone to Shad 

I’m basically an undergrad (Come on!)

Here at HBS

We’re livin' la vida loca

Only cases and few tests

Livin' la vida loca

Getting all this knowledge

I’m like a lil’ baby Yoda 

Almost as bougie as

My Section Patagonia

Spangler coffee cart

I need a double cafe mocha

Just cases and few tests

Livin la vida loca

Parties every night

This White Claw tastes like club soda 

School will wear you out

Livin la vida loca (come on!)

We’re livin la vida loca (Come on!)

We’re livin la vida loca (Come on!)

SO LOW

Lyrics by Aditya Todi

To the tune of "Shallow" from A Star is Born

 

BOND

Tell me somethin’, Jan

Why’d you let me mess up so bad?

I find myself feeling so bleak

My first lien debt is at its peak

Tell me something, Q

Cause I’m tired tryna look so smart

No clue what to do

Like when I workout and Shad’s a zoo

I’m distressed

What is this hard time 

I find myself feeling so strange

My emotions are a stock exchange

I’ve worked in IB, and also PE

I’ve let my whole team down

Mathieu is captured, total disaster

My alpha is tanking now

Leader as Beacon, never fail,

JAN

Woo girl, you’re our new double 0

You were the perfect choice, cause you’re always a pro

It may be tough now, but just need time to grow

If you were a stock, I’d sell high and buy low

Come now, come dry your eyes

You know you a star, you can touch the sky

I know LEAD is hard, that I can’t deny

If you need advice, let me simplify

At HBS, less work is more 

Answer a cold call, check emails

Succeed at HBS, shine like a diamond

Go out and rule the world like Jamie Dimon

You don’t need to make Dean’s List

Bad ass, strong female.

B-SCHOOL DREAM

Lyrics by Jake Tauscher

To the tune of "Teenage Dream" by Katy Perry

OCTOPUSSY

I came to Harvard,

With dreams of a sweet romance.

But being single,

In school is no fairy tale.

Flirted in section,

but got roasted for those dates, skydeck

 

So then I went out,

Into Cambridge

Lawyers; were kinda sexy,

Some IIIs and some IVs

But every legacy boy

Gets tired of my views, tax their wealth.

 

But my sweet, mature EC

This is B-School love.

We can chat, about cases

You and I

We’ll have dual income!

 

You make me feel like I’m living a B-School dream,

The way you challenge me.

Will you go

To RC Ball

With me as my plus-one

I’ll have a plus one.

 

ODDJOB

Have. the. talk?.

What are you and I

Ex. clu. sive?

It’s quick but can’t deny..

 

D. T. R

Why talk in words

Just use random letters

Sound so much smarter.

 

OCTOPUSSY

We went to Paris

And posted on the ‘gram.

Got some likes and

Then shared a croque madame.

I finally found you,

My fellow hipster geek

Magnifique.

 

Who’s section, event tonight

Should we do, or both?

We can share, our groups of friends

You and I

Will have the best network!

 

You make me feel like I’m living a B-School dream,

The way you challenge me.

Split. The. check

Free flow of cash

There’s no trilemma

No trilemma.

My, heart, stops,

When you talk finance.

Use the WACC

But don’t you discount this

 

ODDJOB

S.F.P

We went back there

And you never did leave

My poor roommate Steve.

 

OCTOPUSSY

I'ma get your heart racing

With my LEAD frameworks

Be your B school dream tonight

Let you try to debate me

About policy

Be your K-school dream tonight

 

You make me feel like I’m living a B-School dream,

The way you challenge me.

Just, one ring

Is all I need,

Sustainably sourced 

Or grown in a lab.

My heart swoons

When you talk careers

Con. sult. ing.

Love the upside there.

 

ODDJOB

I can’t wait

Joint tax return

We’ll pay lower tax rates

Pay lower tax rates.

 

OCTOPUSSY & ODDJOB

I'ma get your heart racing

Here in Harvard Square

Be your B-School dream tonight

Hope that this works out, or I’ll

Skip the reunion

Be your B-School dream tonight

NI6!

Lyrics by Andrew Kahn

To the tune of "Pokemon! Gotta Catch them all" from Pokemon

BOND

I’ve always been the very best.

My life: a fire drill.

Hear me out - it’s HBS

that taught me how to chill! 

 

Now the moment is at hand.

Together with my team,

we will stop an evil plan.

My gosh, it’s like a dream!

 

I am Bond!

MONEYPENNY

And we’re both here too -

BOND

Yes, you and me.

Our threesome was meant to be.

MONEYPENNY

Oh my god.

BOND

Oh, you’re my best friends

In a school we must defend!

I am Bond!

They heard you before -

BOND

I pulled us through.

My leadership rescued you.

Not quite right, but you do you.

BOND

We are strong!

We will win, just watch!

OCTOPUSSY

Bring it down a notch.

BOND

Oh yeah ...

MONEYPENNY

When I was captured, I felt alone

No Q, or Jan, or Dad

But cuz of you, I think I’ve grown

Found guts I never had.

 

OCTOPUSSY

When No Collateral threatened me,

I lost sight of the cause.

But now I’m back, it’s time to fight!

This Cancer has some claws!

PURE MONETIZATION

Lyrics by Nick Luzarraga

To the tune of "Pure Imagination" from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

MOONRAKER

Come with me

And you’ll be 

In a world of pure monetization

How corrupt can you be

While avoiding litigation?

 

We’ll begin with a spin

Traveling in a world of market forces

What we’ll see will defy ethics courses

 

If you want to steal trade secrets

Nike says go on, just do it,

Burn down the rainforest, screw it

Cause a global splash?

There’s nothing to it

 

There is no life I know

To compare with pure monetization

Your fortune will go far

By evading CSR

 

If you want to go cook your books

Or practice insider trading

Opportunities are waiting

Enron’s of the world

They need creating

 

Come with me

And you’ll be

In a world of pure monetization

How corrupt can you be

Dodging an incarceration?

 

There is no life I know

To compare with pure monetization

Let them hate if they dare

Who cares, you’re a gazillionaire

 

Let them hate if they dare

Who cares, you’re a gazillionaire

HBS CAN'T BE BEAT

Lyrics by Tara Huusko

To the tune of "You Can't Stop the Beat" from Hairspray

ENSEMBLE

You can’t stop a new RC  

As they race across the lawn 

Tryna get to Aldrich just in time 

Even though TEM’s just a yawn 

Nicole And you can try to tell them not to stress 

But they still wake up at dawn 

Cause cases are coming ‘round and 'round

When the cold call’s made no one makes a sound

I was lost till I arrived here, now I found my way

HBS can’t be beat

 

Ever since the school began

HBS found out random sections

Could create a demand

For some friendships and some learning

And it’s even better today

 

Cause you can’t stop the RCs from all going

Out on Wednesday night

Holidazzle roast is epic, and we dance till it’s light

And you can try to say we’re just like GSB but that’s not the case

 

HBS can’t be beat!

  

You can’t stop an EC as they fly across the sea

On a three day weekend just to see, Amsterdam for one whole day

Cause cases are coming, 'round and 'round

When the cold call’s made, no one makes a sound

I was lost till I arrived here, now I found my way

HBS can’t be beat!

 

Ever since my discussion group

Wondered why 8am was needed to keep me in the loop

But now I know how to do models, DCF’s with high discount rates

Cause we all have opinions that are unique and make this engine go

And now it all comes together with the HBS show

‘Cause you cannot stop the bonds that make us who we are today

HBS can’t be beat!

You can’t stop my happiness, from my time with you in class

And we still applaud for guests on Zoom, cold calls still get no free pass

Cause cases are coming, 'round and 'round

When the cold call’s made, No one makes a sound

I was lost till I arrived here, Now I found my way

HBS can’t be beat!

 

Ever since business schools began

HBS found required courses that could shape businessmen

They need LEAD and FIN and TOM and of course Strategy

Can’t forget Porter’s forces which run everything, we only need five

More like six, but we teach it as 5+1, who knows why

In finance 1, we also learn how to invest and diversify

HBS can’t be beat!

Oh oh oh

HBS can’t be beat (No!)

No Collateral has been sacked (oooh yes!)

Pants for class not needed (PJs!)

BGIE learned across the globe (Zoom Zoom!)

 

And with EC year in front of us, we’ll stay friends, that’s a fact!

Cause cases are coming, 'round and 'round

When the cold call’s made, no one makes a sound

I was lost till I arrived here, now I found my way

HBS can’t be beat!

 

Ever since I first got the call

My NI6 team had my back, I knew that I wouldn’t fall

With these friendships I can chill and make the most out of RC year

 

As graduation looms we are reminded of how far we have come

Used to have to prep for cases, now we BS some

That’s okay ‘cause the classroom isn’t the most important thing

 

HBS can’t be beat!

Aah, aah, aah’  

Ahh, ahh, ahh

Ahh, ahh, ahh ahh

Ever since I met Section K

We became family for two years now the day has come

For us to finally join the real world again and I have to say

 

Nothing can stop the friendships that we’ve formed from carrying us along
In our real lives as we leave here 

And we have to become

working members of society again,
No more White Claw days

HBS can’t be beat!

HBS can’t be beat!

HBS can’t be beat!

HBS can’t be beat!

HBS can’t be beat!
