To the people up in Texas
It's the nearest thing to Heaven here on earth
The lifestyle up in Texas
Is just go on out and live for all it's worth

Where the men are all men
And the ladies there are born with ways to please
And the people up in Texas
Think that the rest of all the world is over seas

You don't need no one to tell you
When you cross that Texas line
The air starts smellin' sweeter
And the water tastes like wine

The sun is always shining
So it's seldom ever cold
People just grow up there
Never old

You don't need no one to tell you
When you cross that Texas line
The air starts smellin' sweeter
And the water tastes like wine

The sun is always shining
So it's seldom ever cold
People just grow up there
Never old

The people up in Texas
It's the nearest thing to Heaven here on earth
The lifestyle up in Texas
Is just go on out and live for all it's worth

Where the men are all men
And the ladies there are born with ways to please
And the people up in Texas
Think that the rest of all the world is over seas

Yeah, the people up in Texas
Think that the rest of all the world is over seas
