Have you ever noticed that the melody of the Texas Fight Song is the same as "I've Been Working on the Railroad"?
Well, living in Texas, and having Uncle Ernie as a graduate, Texas is one of the few schools that we also root for in college games. Thanks to Uncle Ernie, we have a bottle opener that plays the Texas Fight Song when you use it. Meghan loves it and has figured out how to cue to the music without a bottle. Of course, since I am not a Texas grad, I have delighted in teaching Meghan the words to "I've been working on the railroad", each time the melody plays.
Lorenzo rolls his eyes, and Alex's always finishes the song...LONGHORNS!
As you may have guessed, we've heard the song a few times in the past day or so.
I must admit, I was quite happy to learn that the Longhorns won. It's always ok for me to see USC lose. However, the funny part was listening to Meghan sing "I've been working on the railroad, all the live long day" every time the song starts.
We may live in Texas, but the kids are ND born and bread.
GO IRISH! Beat Georgia Tech....Ramblin Reck... or bumble bees!
And, Congratulations Longhorns.
