Excuse me I'm a stranger here ―
Where is the University?
I must have lost my way, I fear ―
Excuse me, I'm a stranger here.
These Oxford folk are full of sheer
Dumb, ornery perversity:
Excuse me, I'm a stranger here ―
WHERE IS THE UNIVERSITY?


Visitors to Oxford are often unfamiliar with the University's collegiate structure.
