Verse One

The other day I turned on T.V.

What I saw was amazin' me

Some fool was blowin' smoke, as usual

Well he said exactly what he thought

That Texas should be hung or shot

I stood there in utter disbelief

Well, who the mother duck is he?

Some idiot with an art degree

Every Artist knows it can't be learned

(It is achieved)

Well I know the truth, I was born and raised

In Galveston down by the Bay

Don't take the name of Texas in vain

Chorus

All the cowboys tip their hats

And the country girls curtsy

Horses gallop by respectfully

The crowning glory of the South

I'll slap my Texas out your mouth

Don't you dare, Mess with Texas!

Second Verse

Red Rover, Red Rover!

Send your best and brightest over

Cause if you mess with Texas, hon- you're messin' with me!

The King of Kings and Lord of Lords

Painted us a schmorgesbord

Land of promise, flowin' milk and honey

The apple of our eye

Baby, Texas makes me cry

Chorus

All the cowboys tip their hats

And the country girls curtsy

Horses gallop by respectfully

The crowning glory of the South

I'll slap my Texas out your mouth

Oh don't you dare, Mess with Texas!

Bridge

When economics fail you

Fools are rising up

Texas overfloweth my cup!

Repeat Chorus/ Fade

All the cowboys tip their hats

And the country girls curtsy

Horses gallop by respectfully

The crowning glory of the South

I'll slap my Texas out your mouth

Darling don't you dare, Mess with Texas!

Yehaw! Don't forget to tip your waitresses! Elvis has left the building.
