What's a BA and what's a BS
Which will look better and cause me less stress
Go on myUVM to find your adviser
It might be wiser than advice from your mom

I think my adviser's changed like six times
And I can't remember the reason or rhyme
Of what I need to do and how I need to do it
Can someone just tell me how to run a CATS audit

You don't have time for a meeting
Trying to go to Marche
It's only 20 minutes
So you won't have to stay

And when you have a meeting
Try to shower that day
You want to look professional
Like maybe you crochet

And if you're feelin' extra pumped
About having this major
You could join psych club
And go and meet some strangers

I think my adviser's changed like six times
And I can't remember the reason or rhyme
Of what I need to do and how I need to do it
Can someone just tell me how to run a CATS audit
