  •  I Love Texas (8+ / 0-)

    My father once taught at Texas Tech and I lived in Lubbock  from like 1-5. In grad school at LSU my girlfriend was from Midland. I spent a ton of time driving around the state. I mean days and days. I LOVE the darn state but I am confused. I just don't get it.

    Oh here is the song often played as we drove around Texas.

      "Sweet And Shiny Eyes"

      Your sweet and shiny eyes
      Are like the stars above laredo
      Like meat and potatoes
      To me

      In my sweet dreams we are
      In a bar
      And it's my birthday
      Drinking salty marguaritas with fernando

      Young and wild
      We drove 900 miles of texas highway
      To the mexican border
      As the day was comin' on

      We crossed the rio grande river
      And we swore we'd have things our way
      When we happened to walk in to nuevo leon

      Your sweet and shiny eyes
      Are like the stars above laredo
      Like meat and potatoes
      To me

      In my sweet dreams we are
      In a bar
      And it's my birthday
      And we're having our picture taken
      With fernando
