    All of this 'stuff' makes wanting to be one of the first to colonize Mars a winning move....wait, dang it!! I said "colonize" --- guess I gotta move to the back of the line.

    It’s s good thing I read these threads. Otherwise, I’d never know when I’m supposed to be offended

    The lyrics are definitely a 10.
    As for the tune, it's be better if the lyrics could be sung to the melody of "Red River Valley" or "America" IMHO.

    Oh I don't know. I mean, I like animals as well as the next guy but I think I could of found something better to write about than a cat in a pool.

    And the Oklahoma State song: "when the wind comes sweeping down the plains". refers to the White man sweeping through Indian villages, raping and pillaging-I'm sure. But let some liberal see it and they'll grab it and run.

    That song is as gay as it gets. Oklahoma's state song should be "Choctaw Bingo" by RWH.

    "The Eyes of Texas" had a rather neat spot in the movie "Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo".

    Ain't nothing racist about it.
