“Sooner Magic”
by Tim Rhoades

Welcome to October
a month full of fun
cooler weather, changing leaves
because there is less sun

But for one day in October
south of the Red River
you will find the Texas Longhorns
start to shake and quiver

They have to face the Sooners
in a game played midday
and when the Sooners are victorious
the Longhorns will hear them say

Boomer Sooner!
