IF IT'S ONE THING I'VE LEARNED
OVER MANY RACING YEARS
IS TO GO WITH MY HEART
WHICH OFTEN BRINGS TEARS

BUT THEN IN SOME YEARS
IT ALL WORKS OUT RIGHT
WHEN MY LONG-SHOT COMES THRU
AND MY HEART SINGS ALL NITE

SILVER CHARM, CHARISMATIC
GIACOMO ~ MY SWEET GRAY
THUNDER GULCH & GRINDSTONE
FOR ME THEY DID PAY!

SO FOR THOSE WHO PLAY CHALK
A WIN SOMETIMES IT BRINGS
BUT FOR ME IT'S A LONG-SHOT
THAT MAKES MY HEART SING!

THE WEATHER, THE NOISE
THESE 3 YEAR OLDS FACE
SO ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN
IN A 20-HORSE RACE!

I'M TOTALLY AGAINST 20
14 IT SHOULD BE
BUT 'TRADITION' TRUMPS SAFETY
THAT'S ALL THEY CAN SEE

SO WIN, LOSE OR TIE
THE MAIN THING OF ALL
IS THAT 20 RUN SAFE
AND NOT ONE HORSE DOES FALL!

MAY THE PURRRRRRRRR BE WITH YOU
