Over the river and through the woods

 

Dedicated the the Houston Astros at Thanksgiving 2017

Over the river and through the woods,

To Minute Maid Park we go;
And Uber’s the way, hold parking at bay,
We’ll smile and hold onto that dough!

Over the river and through the woods,
Oh, how the joy inside flows!
It stings our big toes and bites at the nose,
To Crawford at Texas we go!

Over the river and through the woods,
We can’t wait to see Jose play;
Oh, hear the bells ring, “Ting-a-ling-ling!”
Hurrah for our Big Turkey Day!

Over the river and through the woods,
Drive fast; do not dabble delay!
Spring over the ground, like a Springer-wired hound,
For this is our World Series Way!

Over the river and through the woods,
And straight through the Old Station Gate
Our feet seem to go, extremely, so slow,
While our hearts race too hard to just wait!

Over the river and through the woods,
Now Jim Crane’s new cap we do spy!
Hurrah for the fun! Is the champs’ pudding done?
Hurrah for the pumpkin-orange pie!

 

Over the river and through the woods,
This year’s like no other we know!

Champs for this time ~ then forever sublime,

Houston Astros ~ The Champs all aglow!

 

Over the river and through the woods,

This Year ~ and Every Year Hence!

We’ll never forget ~ Nor Bear With Regret,

Our Astros as Champs ~ Has Come True!

 

Happy Thanksgiving 2017, Houston Astros,

And Thanks for A Joy That Has Wings!
