"Godiva's Hymn", "Engineer's Hymn" or "Engineers' Drinking Song" is a traditional drinking song for engineers. It was originally sung by students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology  and is now often performed by the MIT a cappella group The Chorallaries. In many university engineering faculties, military engineering corps and other engineering organizations and societies, Lady Godiva is a school icon or mascot.
Godiva's Hymn is sung either to the tune of The Battle Hymn of the Republic or The Son of a Gambolier. Near Christmas, it is a tradition of the Lady Godiva Memorial Bnad (sic) of the University of Toronto to sing Godiva's Hymn to the tune of Good King Wenceslaus.
A variation, in which the word "mountaineers" is substituted for engineers, is part of a collection owned by the Aberdeen University Lairig (mountaineering) club, and was sung in Crianlarich, Scotland in January 1980.
One Version of the Chorus is as follows:
We are We are We are We are--
We are the engineers--
We can We can We can We can--
Demolish forty beers--
Drink rum Drink rum Drink rum all day--
and come along with us for--
We don't give a damn for any old man--
Who don't give a damn for us--
One of Godiva's Verses:
Godiva was a lady who through Coventry did ride--
To show to all the villagers her fine and lily-white hide--
The most observant villager, an engineer of course--
Was the only one to notice that Godiva rode a horse--
