Texas

from the album

Texas is the Lone Star State,
It says so on their license plates,
But there are many stars in the Texas sky,
Home to the Monarch Butterfly.

The flower is the Bluebonnet,
So-called cuz there’s a hat upon it,
And along the highway it grows,
from Lubbock all the way to San Antone’

Austin is the capital of Texas,
The barbeque will hitya in the solar-plexus.
Corsicana’s famous for it’s fruitcake,
Everything is bigger in the Lone Star State.

Sinsonte is the Spanish word,
For the Lone Star mockingbird.
And above the treetops it does fly,
And Texas is as tall as it is wide.

Willie Nelson’s plays the 4th in Dripping,
His bio-diesel fuel is for road-tripping.
And deep beneath the soil,
In fields where real men toil,
JR Ewing’s out there pumping oil!

Austin is the capital of Texas,
the chili really hitsya in the solar-plexus.
Corsicanna is famous for it’s fruitcake
Yeah, everything is bigger in the Lone Star State.

December 1845,
Statehood was indeed acquired.
And our neighbors south in Mexico,
Will not soon forget the Alamo!

L.B.J. in ‘63
became our commander in Chief.
He succeeded John F. Kennedy,
According to our nation’s policy.

Austin is the capital of Texas,
the barbeque will hitya in the solar-plexus.
Excellence is borne along its substrate,
Yeah, everything is bigger in the Lone Star State.
