'Twas the night...

'Twas the night...

Twas the night before game time,
And all 'round the shoe,
Not a creature was sleeping,
They were screaming Beat Blue!

The players were nestled all snug in their beds,
Thoughts of a National Championship in their heads
Tressel in his sweater, Neutron Man on his mind,
Hoping that Michigan would be caught in a bind.

The banners were hung by the lamp posts with care,
In hopes that St.Troy would find Ginn through the air,

Drunken and crazy and burning their beds,
While visions of kick off danced through their heads.

When all of a sudden there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the keg to see what was the matter.
When there in the sky, in a Coupe Deville sleigh,
Was Woody Hayes decked out in scarlet & gray.

He looked on the crowd that was gathered around,
And said that he heard that a game was in town.
I came here to watch it and wish you good luck,
Though it's not like you need it, cause Michigan
