(Jess's entry in the store contest for the best musical number ends with
this "Alma Mater" song, sung by the store personnel as Mr. R. H. Maybe is lifted
aloft and spirals upward from his thirteenth floor office).
Spirit shining -
Heart held high -
Raise your voices
To the sky -
(Or, at least, the thirteenth floor
Where Mr. Maybe watches o'er the store.)
Some day, when we're old and gray,
To our children, we will say:
"Lead the good life, set your plan -
You, too, may be a Maybe man!"
