THE BIG RACE 


I SNOWSHOE RACED AT FT McPHERSON

AND I’M A FIT AND HEALTHY PERSON.

THEY TOOK THE LEAD

‘CAUSE THEY HAD THE SPEED.

IT WAS A FAST RACE

BUT I KEPT MY PACE.

I KNOW HOW TO LOPE

SO MAYBE I HAD HOPE.

I HAD SOMETHING TO PROVE

AND I CAN STILL MOVE.

IT WAS A 5 MILE RACE

AN’ I HAD TO GIVE CHASE.

THEY WERE ALL IN A HURRY

SO THEY MADE ME WORRY.

THEY WERE THE FASTEST RUNNERS EVER

SO I HAD TO BE CLEVER.

I USED ALL MY TRICKS

‘CAUSE I’M RUNNING AT 56.

I’M MADE OF SINEW AND MUSCLE

SO I KNOW HOW TO HUSTLE.

THE FASTEST SNOWSHOERS I HAD TO BEAT

SO MY VICTORY WAS SWEET.

I’M NOT A YOUNG BUCK

BUT I HAD LOTS OF LUCK.

I RAN THE RACE IN A FAST TIME

BUT I WAS FASTER IN MY PRIME.
