A Longhorn Named Texas
Once upon a time an itsy
bitsy teeny weeny calf was born.
With a name of Texas, she dreamed
of being the biggest longhorn.
At first she was mockingbird size
who ate lots of pecan pies.
This made her grow as big as a filly
with an appetite for nothing but chili.
She grew and grew, as tall as can be
until she could not eat any more chili.
Now that she is tall as the great oak tree
with horns that spread from sea to shining sea
She can roam around the ocean coast
through farms and ranches which she loves the most.
Singing along to her country songs
Thinking of how much she belongs ... here!
