Pray For Texas - Pigfarmer Jr

It's hard to eat those thoughts and prayers
It's hard to drink those facebook shares
And it's hard to sleep on good intentions
Even if you really care

If you want you can pray for Texas
But if you want to do some good
I think it's easily understood
You better send some money instead
You can pray for Texas
You can pray for Texas

Someone said I was mean
I didn't share their facebook meme
You can copy and paste to show you care
It's as easy as it seems

If you want you can pray for Texas
But if you want to do some good
I think it's easily understood
You better send some money instead
You can pray for Texas
You can pray for Texas
Ad astra per alia porci - Steinbeck

Pray for Texas
by Dimetrodon

I’m rarely down in Texas,
So please don’t look me up.
I eat my steak without a sauce
Of blandly spiced ketchup.
Don’t have to own a giant truck;
I drive a little car.
Don’t need to smell a yellow rose;
Or wear a single star.
But still,
Pray for Texas,
‘Cause they need your blood,
They need your money,
And they need your boat.

When the rain is pouring down,
The stars ain’t big and bright.
When the Texas flood is rising up,
There’ll be no rest tonight.
When your house is underwater,
You’re adrift, without a home.
Tomorrow night you might be
Sleeping in the Astrodome.
So please,
Pray for Texas,
Give them the shirt right off your back,
Then give them your coat.

When this moment of the storm is passed
And streets are drying out,
When all the fallen trees are gone
And tender seedlings sprout,
Remember how we all converged
From east and west and north,
Perhaps we should continue
To cooperate henceforth.
So still,
Pray for Texas,
And for all of us, because
Our hatred needs an antidote.
