There are two primary ways to become a Texan: be born here or get here as fast as you can. This Typewriter Rodeo poem is for the newest natives.

Welcome To The World Brand New Baby Texan

We’ve been waiting for you

for oh so long

And we’re pulling out all the stops

We’ve gathered up the

perfect Texas weather

Sunny and warm

and not a hint of rain drops

We’re working on our next batch

of wildflowers

To welcome your




We’ll sprinkle your roadways with a

Rainbow of petals

Bluebonnets in every ole thing

You sure are lucky

our new Texan friend

We’ll welcome you with all our might

For you’re one of us now

a Texan, and how

And you’ll sleep under stars big

and bright
