Flying Booger's Half-Mind Hymnal THE HALF-MIND HYMNAL A Songbook for Hash House Harriers "Shocking! Disgusting! Delightful!" Compiled by Flying Booger May 2007 Edition -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Half-Mind Hymnal is a songbook for Hash House Harriers. As such, it is guaranteed to offend – consider yourself warned. This songbook is a work in progress. When I compiled the first edition in 1993, I knew about 100 songs; the current edition contains more than 800. The Half-Mind Hymnal is dedicated to hashers and hashing. Special thanks to Zippy (may he hash and sing in peace), Bollox, Beaver Bam Bam Balls, Ian Cumming, Sauer Krotch, Dum BUF, Mu-Sick, Catwoman, Neptunus, Sodbuster, Smoking Wiener, and three non-hashers: Derek Cashman, Ed Cray, and John Patrick. Thanks also to the authors of hash songbooks and to the many individual hashers who contributed (and continue to contribute) songs to this collection. Finally, thanks to the pilots of the USAF and NATO fighter squadrons in the Second Allied Tactical Air Force who started me singing and taught me the basic repertoire. Without their inspiration this songbook wouldn't exist. On-On! Flying Booger Song Master at Large -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Note to Song Masters: A great way to teach hashers new tunes is to copy one or two songs from this book, hand them out at the hash, then lead the pack in singing. Personally, I think that's the best way to use this songbook. Note on Copyright: There is some copyrighted material in this songbook – a few Monty Python songs, for example, that are popular with hashers. Please do not copy those, or tell anyone that I copied them! My own introductory comments, the way I organize the book, and the songs and poems I write myself are copyrighted, but you're welcome to share them with other hashers. Other than that, 90% of the material in this songbook is in the public domain – these songs belong to all of us, just as the Half-Mind Hymnal belongs to hashers everywhere. Note on Melodies: Wherever possible, I name the melodies to the songs in this collection. If you have access to the Internet, go to John Patrick’s Folklore site at . You can listen to and download MP3 files of more than 100 common melodies, listen to field recordings of actual hashers singing various songs, and 1

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
