    THE NIGHT OF THE ROSE BOWL

    T'was the night of the Rose Bowl...and all through the land,
    All the Longhorns were stirring, even the band.


    The tickets were purchased for the game, room, and air...
    In hopes that "
    Saint Vincent" would soon be there!!

    The fans were tailgating from their truck beds,
    While a vision of a championship danced in their heads.


    And Bevo in his bridle, and me in my cap,
    Had just popped a cold one before the first snap.


    When out on the turf there arose such a clatter,
    I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter!!


    My eyes fixed on the tunnel, and the thundering herd;
    The roar of the fight song; I sang every word!!


    They ran to the end zone, and knelt to their maker...
    Giving thanks for
    TEXAS, and the victory later!!

    When, what to my wondering eyes should appear.
    Coach Mack in his glory, "THE HEAD COACH OF THE YEAR"!


    And our hero from
    Houston that I haven't seen since;
    I knew in a moment it must be "Saint Vince"!


    More rapid than eagles his posse they came...
    And he whistled and shouted and called them by name!


    Now, THOMAS! Now,
    TAYLOR! Now, PITTMAN and SWEED!
    On, CHARLES! On,
    GRIFFIN! ROSS, HUFF and McGEE!

    To the top of the world for a championship crown!
    Now dash away, dash away, to a
    TEXAS touchdown!

    They fought with fury! They fought with might!
    They fought like champions on this championship night!


    Oh! The bombs they flew, and the holes blew open...
    The Longhorns ran the ball just as we were hope'n.


    The defense attacked, and oh, they played hard!
    Stopping the Trojans, in their own back yard!


    Mack's eyes how they twinkled, his dimples, how merry!
    His cheeks were like roses, the "crystal ball" he did carry!


    He embraced his coaches, he embraced his team!
    And "The Eyes of TEXAS" we all did sing


    A season that will live forever in lore;
    COME EARLY, WEAR ORANGE, STAY LATE, once more!


    HOOK EM HORNS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
